Dear Educator, This week we are going to talk about Joseph, how he trusted God even when he was sold as a slave to Egypt by his brothers and there he was put into prison by Potiphar, his master, but in all this trouble he never forgot to trust God that would come out of this situation. Joseph was obedient to the word of God, and never denied his faith on Him, so children when go through a bad moment in school or with your friends that you want to lie instead telling the truth or being angry or misbehaving you should pray to God and trust Him that He will help you.
Here is today's suggestion: how about doing
a panel in the classroom for children mark their participation in Fasting?
Below are some of examples of little dolls, which may be used in the panel or Board as you
prefer for each child that is participating in the Fast make his little face,
as a way of saying "I'm also participating the Fast of Daniel! "
Can be made with foam paper, colored paper,
cardboard, finally, just use your creativity!! Its going to be a fun activity for us to do this Sunday 29th, as the children can help prepare their own dolls.
On September 23 we will begin the campaign of the Fast of Daniel, that this campaign has transformed the lives of many children and teens by receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Through this fast, they have experienced the true life with God, and this for us as educators, is glorious. Able to bring these creatures to a real experience with the living God still in an early age, it is more glorious. As Daniel (Daniel 9:10) which had fasted for 21 days, depriving himself of desirable things of his time in search of the answer he needed from God, and was granted, we are also in this same goal.
I say we because the fast of Daniel is also for those who have received the baptism with the Holy Spirit and wish to devote more to God, and this includes educators and coordinators who care for Kids and Teens.
How the children and teens can participate?
We will be teaching them in the classroom during meetings with children and TF Teen, to abstain from all kinds of information that does not convey the message of God as: entertainment, television, internet, games, music, films, books and any other type of content that does not refer to God for 21 days.
They should engage only with things that feed their faith as: reading the Bible, the books of stories released by Unipro; watch the Church programs on television and on the internet, through Universal TV, bishop's blog Macedo and other bishops, CBC Blog, website and social networks TF Teen Church officials, in short, they should only get involved with things that come closer and closer to God.
Through this way, leading them to know the true God so that they can achieve the complete transformation of their lives.
May God bless you all richly and abundantly
Teach children that God protect those who
trust in Him and practice His Word.
MEMORIZE THE VERSE
“He…shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. …My God, in Him I will
Take to the class pictures of: nuclear power plants,
beaches with many bathers and a street with many cars (you can find in
magazines or internet).
Start by saying: "Did you know that there are
some dangerous places that children cannot go? A nuclear power plant, for
example (show the picture of the nuclear power plant), is a place that requires
extreme care and only the adults working can stay there. But there are other
places where children can go, but need to be accompanied by an adult, for
example (show pictures), the street and the beach. In these places, children
must be accompanied; it can be dangerous if they are all alone. Today we will
learn about one place where we will be safe and secure. Let’s find out where is
this place? Then let’s pay attention.
THERE WAS a very shy boy named Luke. The kid lived in fear and that's why his
friends always made fun of him. Luke was afraid of some animals, didn’t like to
stay alone at any time, and getting sick was other thing that left him worried.
Luke didn’t like to be fearful and therefore was very sad.
One day, the teacher was teaching at to trust in God and the importance of not being afraid of anything. Listening
to these words, Luke asked what he should do to not be afraid, because he frequently
attended to , but was still afraid of
almost everything. Then the teacher replied that Psalm 91 teaches us to trust
in God, it is written that God protects us from evil, because He loves us. He
pounds and save the lives of those who trust in Him, leaving apart from the
Just as bird don’t allow any animal approaching the
nest, with their wings covering the little birds, so God cares for His children
and kept them in His special hideout only those who are faithful to Him.
Buddies, Luke was very happy with the explanation and
asked the teacher what he should do to stay in God’s hideout. And the teacher
replied that first he should abandon fear and trust on the Word of God.
From that day, Luke started to trust in God and became
a brave boy.
Children, God wants us to trust in His Word. When we
are afraid, we demonstrate a lack of confidence in Him. We should not act like Luke
who was in fear of everything, because we have God as our hideout where no harm
may reach because our Heavenly Father loves us and take care of us. Amen?
Take to class pictures or drawings from magazines of a
transportation car of values (banks). Educator, show the pictures to the kids
"Who of you already saw a car like this? Do you
know what it is? (Wait for their participation.) This vehicle is known as
transportation car of values; it is a strong car that is used to transport the
money from big businesses. These cars are armored, have systems of cameras and
the guards that work on these cars wear bullet-proof vest to protect them. But, even with such
protection, there are assaults on these cars and with such a protection it
wasn’t enough to prevent this of happening. Today we learned that we are fully
protected only when we are in God’s hideout, in His presence. Buddies, when we
are obedient to the Word of God and when we trust Him, then it means that we
are constantly close to Him and only those who know and practice the will of
God are protected and saved by Him”.
Educator, teach Psalm 91 singing and then make a prayer
for the class:
Teach children that the book of Psalms has a lot of important
VERSE TO MEMORIZE
“The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting...” (Psalms 119.144)
Who here likes to listen to stories? It's great to listen to stories at
school, the stories mom tells us, isn’t that right? But did you know that there
is a book full of true stories? Do you know what book I'm talking about? (Show
the Bible and wait for their participation). Yes, well, I'm talking about the
Bible through the Bible stories we hear teachings very important to our lives.
Who in here wants to listen to a story? So let’s pay attention.
ONCE UPON a time there was a girl named Annie. She was very obedient and always
tried to please God. Annie had a very nice room full of toys, bicycles and
dolls. His family taught her the Word of God every day.
Once, Annie´s mom decided to donate some things for an
orphanage. Then she asked Annie to separate some toys, clothes, shoes that
didn’t fit her anymore.
The girl was curious and asked the mother what an
orphanage was and why children lived there. Her mother explained that the
orphanage is a place where orphans live; they don’t have mom or dad.
When knowing that, Annie ran to her room and separated
lots of things: shoes, clothes and the best dolls. She wanted children to be
happy with her gift.
Since she was small, Annie knew the Word of God and
learned many good things through it, so she was kind, fair and very smart. She
was not selfish and she liked to divide her things with those who had none.
Annie and her mother went to the orphanage and took
everything they managed to collect, Annie had also asked for donations to her
Despite having delivered donations, Annie did a nice
friendship card to all children. Her attitude let everyone in the orphanage happy

We always have to behave correctly, good attitudes
please God. But just listening to His Word we can learn good things and grow in
wisdom and intelligence. Annie behaved correctly and showed everyone that she
was a different kind of girl.
Educator, you need two clips and two office paper. On one paper write
"I practice good attitudes"; on the other "I practice bad
Start right now by choosing two children. Fix the paper with a clip on
the back of each child's blouse chosen and say, "These children represent
two types of people: those who choose the right things and the one that choose
the wrong things." (Read what is written on the papers).
"Now walk around the class and the kid that I say the name must
choose one of the two (points to the chosen kids) to follow."
Begin the activity. Ask the children chosen to walk around the class.
Educator, call some children and ask for them to walk behind of one of the kids.
Observe which of them they will choose.
Conclude by saying: "We must be careful and see if we are following
the wrong things and acting in the wrong way. Like our friends that invite us
to follow and do things that displease God, we must be wise and choose only
what pleases to our God. Annie chose to do what was right and showed everyone that
she was a different because she heard and practiced the teachings of the Word
of God. Who of you will only have good attitudes from now on raise your hand!
Educator, make a prayer with the children and then memorize the verse
with the class as follows:
1. With a red marker, write (letters large and visible) the verse in a
white cardboard. Then cut the cardboard into pieces. The pieces should be
similar to those of a puzzle. And do not forget to prepare everything in

Doing so, ask: "What is its name?" Let's say he grabbed an apple,
then say: "He / she grabbed an apple." The color of the apple is red,
repeat after me, red. Now he / she will put the apple in the red box (show
