Today I want to share with you a story about an amazing 14 year-old boy.
Tina and her husband, Steve are moving into the Escanaba area at the end of March. They have 3 children: 2yrs, 7yrs, and 14yrs. The 14 year old has decided that he wants to be baptized and wants to be a pastor when he gets older! This amazing boy had an English assignment for class that required him to do a 3-page book report on a book of his choice. When the teacher asked him if he chose a book yet, he answered, "Yes. I am doing my book report on Job, from the Bible." The teacher gave him a strange look and said, "That would not be a good idea. You can chose any other book." The 14 year old made his argument with her and the principal. The principal began by saying the same thing, taking the teacher's side. "The teacher told you no, when it comes to the Bible. I have to agree, she is right." The boy got frustrated with this. He continued to make his argument... "Well, the teacher above her does not agree with that." He told the principal. The man chuckled and said, "There is no teacher above her. It would be up to me and then the Board Members." He stated. The boy shook his head. He stood up, looked the principal straight in the eyes and said, "JESUS was a teacher!"
It's amazing how some children are smarter than an adult could ever think of becoming! I feel this child could possibly change so many lives! He melted my heart already. Good luck to you and your journey!
