Today, we’re going to talk about Philip and the Ethiopian in Acts chapter 8. Before we get started, let’s take a moment to pray. PRAY about:
- How the Ethiopian government official was seeking God.
- How God led Philip to meet the official.
- How the official was ready to accept Jesus as his savior.
- How Jesus can help us talk to people about His love for us.
Now, sit with your teachers for a little while to LISTEN to this wonderful story:
