You'd better watch out

Santa Claus is listening to God’s Word.

It is not unusual in the Sekadau culture to hear about people who have names that missionaries Paul and Bella Gervasi consider strange. The couple has met Aspirin, Rinso, Spinach and Plastic.

Santa’s parents have been an encouragement to the Gervasis. Santa’s mother, who is called Santa’s Mom by others, is working with Bella and a co-worker, Naomi, to learn to read and write. Santa’s parents are also hearing evangelistic Bible lessons.

The missionary team is teaching three classes right now and on Saturday 10-year-old Santa Claus was very quick to answer questions that were asked at the end of one session.

"It is great to see their family enthusiastically studying God’s Word," the Gervasis wrote.

For the past few months the team has been working hard to develop a children’s program. They are modeling it after the Awana program in the USA but making changes so that it will be culturally relevant.

Please pray that Santa Claus and his friends will be active in the program and that it will lead many to know Christ.
