Baby Samuel is #14 of our little ones who spread so much joy around campus. Having families with small children at the Bible school is also a living testimony of loving family function to the young people who come our way.
The boy Samuel of the Bible had a very early start in knowing about the Lord God. Oh how important it is to share the simple truths of Scripture with one’s children while they are still young. We know this is the goal for Danny and Manuela.
Meanwhile, the boy Samuel … grew in favor with the Lord
and with the people.
As Samuel grew up, the Lord was with him,
and everything Samuel said proved to be reliable.
1 Samuel 2:26; 3:19
Parental responsibility (and with the Lord being one’s unending Source of wisdom) is to discern the child’s gifting and build on it and encourage it and help it unfold. Our prayer for you, Danny and Manuela, is that God our Father will guide each step you walk together with Samuel and that he will follow the Lord all the days of his life.
Train up a child in the way he should go
[and in keeping with his individual gift or bent],
and when he is old he will not depart from it.
May God’s richest blessing rest over your family!
