A good example (county Timis)


A good example …

At the Good News Clubs we share with the children about the Bible characters showing them both their good and bad side. We encourage the children to follow only the good example of the Bible characters, that which glorifies God, and to live accordingly day by day. We also help them see the negative aspects of the Bible characters, which do not glorify God.

We teach them about Elijah, Elisha, Moses, David, Abraham, Joseph, James, Matthew, Paul, Peter, Timothy, Ruth, Jephthah, Samson and many other Bible characters.

We make the connection ...

We make the connection between the principles that guided the behavior of the characters in the Bible with the principles that guide the children’s behavior.

One child appreciated Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. He said he doubted he would have had the strength to stand against the king and to resist sin. He said he would have bowed down to the statue. The story really challenged him to be strong like these men.

But most of all we share with them about the good example of Jesus. His life is a great example for every believer to imitate. He is the only Bible Character without a bad side.

A teacher once said that we as human beings, can not be perfect like Jesus, but the children and us should work hard so that day by day we become more like Him.

We also share with the children about different missionaries, contemporary ones or not, encouraging them to learn from their faith and dedication.

All this time we pray that our lives would be good examples for the children in the GNCs to follow.

During the moths of May and June we will continue to do these things. In order to be able to go to all the GNCs, to the special events around Easter, and to other events we have planned, we need 650 euros. This amount will cover the travelling costs, the materials needed, little gifts we would like to give to the children, and a few  other costs (for more details contact me at

Would you like to help us tell the children about the good examples they have to follow?

You could pray, give or share our project with others who would be interested to help.

For His sake,

Ionut and Madalina Mateescu
