I am a volunteer sunday school teacher in our local born again christian church. My class, like some other classes, kids are hyper active, Well if you're there you will see me chasing the kids with my 4 inches pump shoes, and skirt and all, I am happy doing this though it is really tiring but i do believe God restores my strength. I wanna tell you about this one student of mine, who really did great last Sunday. And I thank God for that. Most often this kiddo kill almost our time, i'll be chasing him all around stopping him bullying his classmates. I have been praying for this little boy that may God bless Him and make him just sit down and listen to our lessons many days i am encouraging him to read, to recite, participate and eveything, give him rewards for every good jobs, and guess what last sunday he is my best pupil! I am very glad for the mood he had last sunday. He reciteD, he memorizeD, he played, he even prayed, and He even read every scripture i asked him to read, I really love it. I am very happy for this kiddo, And I thank God for that.!

So you see, how God works in his own way, when we pray? Imagine a bully , suddenly is tamed and well behaved ? God can really surprise us with HIs answers to our prayers.

God is, of course, a miracle worker. I'm happy for your good success. However, I'm concerned that you write about hyperactive, bullying "born again" students. It seems that "born again" parents should be instructing their children about appropriate, Godly behavior. They should also be able to sit still long enough to listen to instruction. Also, they should be taught obedience and respect and how to focus on doing their work quietly. You should not be running around in 4 inch heels; you'll be old before your time if that keeps up.

The kids: I know, I thought about it a lot, I see your point, ahm I do not know what is their activity and house rules or tradition before sunday school arrive, I am actually thinking of ways how to change them or help them change, I am actually listing possible things to do to observe them, their life styles for me to know where and how to start, I am changing mg lesson plans according to their needs behavioral needs, I have so many plans, I just to don't know how will the course be supplemental, i mean permanent as in that will stick in their hearts. I see some difference last sunday when we met. The Parents: I am not so sure how they live their lives I am thinking on how to help themselves and their kids as well i am researching from the internet and i have gathered some useful techniques. The 4 inches Heel: That's not a problem I'll just bring some extra flats maybe exclusively for sunday school. thanks for all.!

Many children needs some special attention from us to get the most out of them if their are hidden talents inside of them that is concealed through their misbehaving sometimes. It is good to hear that you are doing your best duties as a teacher to help this child. One of the best qualities a teacher should have is to always keep oneself in a good mood especially when dealing with little children. Keep up the good work.

Prayer do really work to help others. It's very difficult to convince other people sometimes that the only solution to their problem is to lift it all up to God. Some people just criticize believers because they couldn't see the effect of prayers in their lives. Well, they need our prayers then! I'm happy of what you're doing and may you continue to volunteer and share the word of God to the kids. I wish I can have the same opportunity.

To God be the Glory, Sunday School is part of my rest hours, yeah kinda wierd to say rest hours, but for me its my joy, and yes, many people don't understand that being with God, doing dervice for Him is the best thing we can do to be happy other than satisfying our selves with the business of this world.Thanks You
