Dutse Mai Rai! Living Stones!

“Do not let anyone look down on your because you are young, but set an example for all the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity,” the children recite with their hand motions. We join our hands together in the center of the circle and one of the children, Victor, cheers, “Dutse Mai Rai!” “Mai Rai!” they repeat their hands rising into the air! They scatter in all directions heading for home, to return the chairs to the church, or to gather my things for me. I (Christy) smile and say a silent prayer. “God, may they indeed be an example to this church. May their singing impact hearts and bring you glory. May they be “Dutse Mai Rai!” Living stones! built together to be a building where you dwell! We hope to make a music video with 10 favorite songs chosen by the children. 5 of them are original songs. These will be sold to the church to raise funds for the uniforms! We want this to honor Jesus and bring joy to the hearts of all who hear it! Please pray that God will raise up these children to love him and fear his name. Pray that God would give them boldness while they sing. Pray that it will not be a performance but praise!
