praise be to God, do you have deaf churches in KENYA? hope not and need to plant one.

My organization does not have any Deaf churches in Kenya, but a quick Google search for Deaf Churches Kenya will give you your answer.

I need to make a kids’ version picture book of Jonah. Can you give me any tips for making my book? Thanks, it will be appreciated!!

I don’t know that I have any specific resources, but I heard something interesting one time that you may want to keep in mind. The question was posed to the audience, “How many of you think of Noah’s Ark as a cartoon drawing having animal’s heads sticking out of it?” Of course all of us probably think of that at some time. The point the man was making is that we do many Bible stories an injustice by trivializing them. People grow up with only an image of a cartoon and not a real concept that God’s Word is true and accurate. While we would never say that the stories in the Bible are just fairy tales, we often teach them as if they are.

Whatever you end up doing, at least try to help the children understand that this is a real story and not just a fairy tale.

I’m really glad you were beessld by this message. I still think it’s a little weird and discouraging, especially in light of how many people have attacked Rob Bell in recent days how so many Christians seem really worried about people thinking that God is only love. Of course God is about justice, too but I think many people equate justice with some kind of arbitrary punishment, which it’s not, but they think that it is, and that’s why they decide to reject God altogether. Speaking as someone who was a devout secularist for most of my life, I really believe that the non-Christian world needs to hear the message about God’s love FIRST. Once you get to the point where you trust God’s character, the idea of justice is a necessary and good thing, not a bad thing. But again, only once you trust God’s character.

This is a great summary, however I’m a little confused. I thought Jonah was dead, and his soul was in Sheol among the dead while in the great fishes belly. Then was RESURRECTED (making this make sense of why Jesus said this would be the only miracle for the Pharisees, since Jesus was also RESURRECTED) after three days in the earth. This was the miracle to take (RESURRECTION), more so rather than being preserved in a great fish for 3 days. Is it possible Jonah was dead, his soul in Sheol, while in the whale, then brought back to life after three days?

God richly bless you. Am moved by the wonderful work God is using to do. For allowing yourself I say kudos may the Almighty showers his oil on you in Jesus name. Please, I am working among the deaf in Ghana, how can I make it big to other churches even making the national church hold the ministry.
