Lisa and I were interested in fostering a child and had been praying about it. You see, Lisa and myself have a standing joke around here at the Gummig household, that our four grown children have not "produced" any grandchildren for us yet. So we thought foster care would be an option. We found that the answered prayer about fostering was Darcy asking us if we would be interested in teaching Sunday school. We prayed about it and told her that we would be happy to do so in whatever class there was a need. So she gave us the pre-kinder class (4 and 5 year olds).
First, Lisa and I would have never thought about teaching this age group. But by allowing God to place us where He needed us has proven to be a wonderful blessing. These little knuckleheads have touched our hearts through their comments, silliness, openness, honesty, and innocence. They remind us of when Jesus said "Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven." -Matthew 18:3.
We would highly recommend serving in the Children's Ministry because the kids are a blast! It is great to see them understand God's word through stories and it helps us to grasp God's word better because we have to bring it down to their level.
