Yesterday was St. Patrick's Day and like most holidays, we at Little Builders Preschool & Early Education Center, a ministry of YWAM (Youth With A Mission) San Diego/Baja, enjoyed celebrating along with everyone else. However, because we are a missionary school, this holiday means a little bit more to us. Not only did we wear green but we learned a bit about who exactly St Patrick was and why we celebrate him on March 17 each year.
We talked a little bit about what a missionary is. We came up with some great explanations of what missionaries do; share God's love with others, build houses (one of our ministries is Homes of Hope, building homes for the poor), live in another country, etc. We reminded them that we are all missionaries because we share God's love with other people.
Once we completed the clovers, we wrote God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit on each of the 3 sides of the shamrock to remind the students that God is Three in One aka the Trinity.
