Hope in the Heartland

Gracepoint Church, Peabody

I’ve never seen so many people in my life. I heard my dad tell my mom that there were five thousand men who brought their families out here. Lots of sick people came to see this miracle worker. People are getting very excited and saying that this man is talking to everyone who comes to him and is healing them too!

I’ll bet this is a day that we will remember for the rest of our lives. The family that lives next door to us had been very sad because their new baby was born sick and no one has been able help her until this man healed her. And now her parents are dancing and laughing. It really makes me feel good inside. I am so happy for them.

I don’t understand everything that the teacher is saying but my parents told me that he is telling them of God’s love. My mom said that this man is speaking of the kingdom of God and making it sound as if he is part of that promised kingdom.

This is a very special day. This man sure seems very powerful and important. I wish I could do something important someday. My dad says that he thinks I’m so special that he is letting me hold the sack of food for our family’s supper later. All we have are five barley loaves and two small dried fish. But I still wish I could do something special some day.
