Week 4 – Missionary week- The Corrie ten Boom story
This is the last week of the month and today our kids learnt about ‘The story of Corrie ten Boom’ which offers valuable lessons for our children. Firstly, it teaches them about resilience and determination in the face of adversity. Despite the challenges and dangers during World War II, Corrie and her family remained steadfast in their faith and commitment to helping others. The story also emphasizes the importance of compassion and selflessness. Corrie’s father risked his own freedom to protect and assist those in need, showing children the power of empathy and kindness. Additionally, Corrie’s ability to forgive and love even those who had wronged her demonstrates the significance of forgiveness and the capacity for healing.
Overall, the story of Corrie ten Boom encouraged our RWC kids to have faith, show compassion, and persevere in the face of challenges.
