I was asked by a good friend who teaches at Rainey Endowed School in Magherafelt a while ago if I would come along and take their Junior Scripture Union. Of course I agreed and headed off from work today (with my Google Maps directions!) bound for Rainey … appropriately named as it was completely bucketing down for the entire journey!
I arrived and was greeted by this completely amazing poster that was made by a couple of the first years especially for me coming to speak and I just felt I had to share it with the world! I even brought it home with me and it is now on display in my room!
I spoke a little bit about my own choice in becoming a Christian and shared a bit of my testimony as well as a couple of the big challenges that I’ve faced since becoming a Christian. They were brilliantly behaved (apart from the booing when I mentioned being a Liverpool fan!) and to be honest I could have sat and talked to them for hours … but unfortunately I only had 20 minutes!
A great experience and hopefully not the last chance I’ll get to do something like that again!
