I Want to Believe

Yesterday in one of the children's classes, the teacher read the Bible story from Luke 5 about Jesus calling Peter and his fellow fishermen.  Several times during the story, the teacher emphasized that Peter wanted to help Jesus.  At the end of the story, she asked the children if they wanted to help Jesus and what they could do.  The children gave good answers, but one was striking.  In a clear little voice one of them said, "I want to believe."
We often focus most of our attention and preparation on the adults who attend our English camps.  Thankfully, those who teach the children come well prepared, hoping for faith to spring up among these little ones.  Praise God for the opening of this heart.  May this be the first among many.
