Needed at Home
Aaron gave his life to Christ at a Bible camp in Pakistan when he was 13 years old. He studied the Bible and shared his faith with others. But as time went on, Aaron was not content with his life. He wished he could leave his home in Pakistan and move to another country. Like many other youth in his country, he imagined that life would be better and more exciting somewhere else.
One day Aaron attended a Christian event, and he noticed younger children who had come with their parents. He began to talk to the children and ask them questions.
“Why do we celebrate Christmas?” Aaron asked the children.
“Because that’s when Jesus rose from the dead!” a child answered.
“Why do we celebrate Easter?” asked Aaron.
“That’s when Jesus was born!” replied a child.
Aaron realized that the children were like “sheep without a shepherd.” (See Matthew 9:36.) Christian adults in the area were not trained to present Bible truths to children. Aaron realized he needed to stay in Pakistan to help the children. Since then, he has introduced many kids to Bible stories, Christian truths, and the Good News of Jesus. He is thankful that God called him to minister to children, and thankful that he answered God’s call.
