This week, the children learnt about a fascinating story where Paul and Silas were thrown into prison. Their crime? “Causing trouble.” Paul had rebuked an evil spirit from a girl and her masters had Paul and Silas thrown into prison.
The story continues that Paul and Silas sung worship songs in prison, and at night there was an earthquake. Their chains fell off and their cell door swung open. They could have escaped but didn’t. The guard on call, overwhelmed by what was happening almost took his life.
That night Paul and Silas witnessed to the guard and he and his entire household was baptized that night!
