Por qué Dios nos dio el Antiguo Testamento? (Why did God give us the Old Testament). One of the catechism questions we are working on = #17. What else are they memorizing? The books of the bible - we are starting with the Old Testament, and they can say them all the way up to The Psalms! It's been a blast! And yes, that gives me an "excuse" to learn them all in Spanish as well - since I'm teaching them. SO exciting to see the kids rise to the challenge.

The answer (by the way) to catechism question #17 is God gave us the Old Testament to show us path of Him sending us the promised savior. The story from last week showed how a sacrifice was needed from the beginning (Adam and Eve) and all through the Old Testament - and the ultimate sacrifice was Jesus. That being said, the craft for today was making a sheep. They loved it.
