The AWANA Song

January 16 was special. Our church brought back the AWANA program which was special because we had AWANA when I was a kid. I was actually saved on an AWANA night during revival. AWANA stands for "Approved workmen are not ashamed" and is a program that teaches children the gospel and scripture as well as discipleship. It is from 2 Timothy 2:15:
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Somehow, I was made the leader of Sparkies (K-2nd grade). I feel woefully unprepared, but God's got a plan.

Tristan is a Cubbie (3 & 4 year olds). He was supposed to be a Puggle (2 & 3 year olds), but Helen thought he was ready to go ahead and start Cubbies because he's already good at scripture memory (he knew John 3:16 before we even started AWANA!).

His first verse was John 4:10 "...God...loved us and sent his Son." He knew it for this week and passed his first section! Here he is in his club vest:

He was so excited!

We are working in section 2 of his entrance book. He's got part one down! "A is for All. Romans 3:23 '...all have sinned...'"
