Spanish I Bible Story Projects

When I was in college, I signed up to lead a Saturday morning Bible club for elementary school kids in an underprivileged neighborhood. I showed up on the first Saturday and discovered that nearly all of the kids exclusively spoke Spanish. I had to scramble to translate my lesson on the spot…but fortunately, I knew enough Spanish that I (mostly!) could. I had a few take-aways from this experience: 1. If you can speak Spanish, God will give you opportunities to do so, 2. I could communicate a lot more than I thought I could, especially when I geared the story to a young audience, 3. it would not have worked for me to use a Spanish dictionary to look up words in the middle of teaching these kids. I had to use the limited words I already knew in a creative way to get my point across…and that was a skill I needed to hone.
