On a recent weekend, my little girl Michele brought her favorite soft toy—Bobby, a yellow bear—to church.
When her daddy picked her up, she inadvertently left it behind in the Children’s Church room. When she realized that her bear was missing, she cried. I rushed back to the class but, to her dismay, the teachers had locked Bobby up.
She burst into tears—rivers of tears poured down her cheeks. The caring teachers tried to look for the keys to unlock the cabinet, but they failed to find the keys. They reassured my daughter that Bobby was locked away with friends.
Unfortunately, till today, Bobby has not been found. But the teachers had succeeded in comforting Michelle—her fears that Bobby is lost were allayed. She tells me these days that Bobby is taking a holiday with other friends and he is not alone.
I really appreciate the teachers going that extra mile to help a child in distress. In this instance, the teachers carried their duties beyond call. They tried their best to find the keys and this was done at the expense of them packing up all the equipment at Children’s Church—Michele’s “crisis” delayed their work, but they selflessly helped her.
I would like to give my thanks and appreciation to the teachers on duty at that last service in March. Teacher Lena and company, thank you so much! You not only provide much-needed child-minding services so that we, the parents, can attend church, but you carry out that service with love and passion. Kudos to you!
