In a small classroom in rural Honduras, fifth graders were painting bright rainbows in an effort to illustrate their new English vocabulary—the basic colors. As we delved into the vibrant work, I stumbled upon a revelation that left me stunned. Blank stares met my inquiry about the story behind the rainbow, a universal symbol of hope. Astonishingly, the narrative of Noah's Ark, so deeply woven into the fabric of our culture, was a blank canvas for my young students.
In that classroom, where curiosity and innocence met, I realized the depth of our mission. These children, unfamiliar with the ancient tale of Noah and his ark, were like sponges awaiting the life-changing waters of God's promises.
A Gap in Knowledge, A Gateway to Redemption
In that unexpected pause, I seized an opportunity—a divine opening to share the timeless story of Noah's Ark. Amidst the vibrant drawings of rainbows, the narrative unfolded like a tapestry of grace. God's promise and redemption woven into the very fabric of the rainbow, became a beacon of light in that classroom.
This is not just a story; it's a revelation. A revelation that bridges the gap between the mundane and the divine, between the colors on a page and the promises etched in the heavens.
