Come with us as we return to South America this summer to volunteer at La Casa De Fe, a home for abandoned and special needs children in Shell, Ecuador.

The Days of Creation

by sara

One of the themes that we did for Bible class this summer was Creation. We talked about how God created the world, and how he created each and every one of us unique and special.

Our verse for the week was Psalms 139:14 “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” The kids did really well learning their verse (in spanish). We also had fun singing the “Days of Creation” song that I had learned while helping out at Awana. It uses rhyming words to help the kids remember what God created each day.

On the first day of the theme our art project was to have the kids use pastels on black paper to draw the world how they would have created it. Here is what they came up with.

One day a group came to help out with Bible and they brought coloring books for the kids. It turned out that the books they randomly brought were also about the creation story! It was awesome to see how God coordinated those details.

  1. You've got some really good artists there! But what I want to know is.... does your "Days of Creation" song still rhyme in Spanish? :-)

  2. Hmm, I'm not sure if it would rhyme in spanish, we just had the kids learn it in English. They all speak some English and love to sing in English too.
