The students will learn the meaning of witness and testimony. They will learn that Christians often witness boldly.
Sing in Tigrinya
Explain: Today we will learn about a woman named Helen who went to prison for singing praises to God in the country of Eritrea. We are free to sing songs that might be against the law in Eritrea. The main language in Eritrea is Tigrinya.
Instructions: Teach the children to sing the song, “God is So Good (He’s So Good to Me)” in Tigrinya.
First sing the following three times: “ahm-lahk sehn-nai.” Then sing: “sehn-nai yoo nah-ai.” (The “ai” sound in both lines is like the English word “eye.”)
The words literally mean “God, good. Good is he to me.”
