Allow the Children to color the picture as you tell the story.
Abraham wanted his son Isaac to have a good wife. He sent a servant to find one for Isaac. (Pretend to search for something or you could hide an object for them to find, or play a short game of hide and seek.)
In the city of Nahor, the servant stopped by a well and prayed that Isaac’s future wife would agree to give him water to drink and offer to draw water for his camels, as well. (Pretend to kneel and pray.) This prayer was answered, and Rebekah became Isaac’s wife. (Pretend to draw water from a well. You could also ladel water from a bucket or tub into a glass.) (See Gen. 24.)
(To help Rebekah do her kind deed, color the picture on this page. Then remove it from the magazine and mount it on heavy paper. Cut out piece A, line up the two Xs with piece A on top, and put a brass fastener through them. The arm can now move to lift the jug.)
