Talking Hands

Jacksonville, FL, USA

Children from the Jacksonville Point Adventist Church in Florida could hardly wait for their weekend training program. They were eager to see how puppets could be used to tell others about Jesus. 

Pastor Fidel Soto was waiting for them with a big smile when they returned from the training program. “So, are you ready to launch our puppet ministry?” 

The children, between 10 and 12 years old, responded with an enthusiastic “Yes!” They love working with their puppets, write their own scripts, and help make their own costumes and props. 

“One of our skits is about two boys who get in a fight,” says Tenver, one of the puppet ministry kids. “The puppets’ friends stop the fight, and they talk about how peace is one of the fruits of the Spirit.”

“We also do skits about Bible characters,” says Isabel, another member of the group. “We took our puppets to a program that helps teenagers who have dropped out of school and gotten into trouble,” she adds. 

The children in the puppet ministry are helping others learn that Jesus wants to be their best friend forever. Please pray for them as they reach out to others with God’s love. 

Millions of people around the world have never heard that Jesus wants to be their friend. To help share the gospel in areas where it’s needed most, please support Project Fund #5020.
