12 Jul Surprise at Adventureland
Every Sunday my family gets ready and goes to Promise Church together. Sometimes I don’t want to go but Mom and Dad say this is a priority. I actually like going because I attend Adventureland with a lot of my friends. We sing, have a lesson based on a Bible story, talk about what we can learn from the story, have a snack and go out to play. My sister, Becky, goes to her own class and Mom, Dad and my brother, Dwayne, go with their friends.
Last Sunday I asked Andy to come along so he could get an idea of what I do every Sunday. This time his mom said yes without Parker or Uncle Andrew coming along. I guess she felt attending church would be a safe place. Andy promised to stay in my shirt pocket. He could peek out and still not be noticed.
My friends and I were having a chat and a snack. Suddenly my friend, Cindy, came up behind me and jerked my chair out from under me. She was just trying to be funny, but I ended up on the floor. All the kids at my table had a good laugh. I laughed too but this was not really funny.
I looked down to my pocket to see if Andy was OK. He was gone! He never leaves my pocket when he is in new places. I had to find Andy without the other kids knowing I was looking for an ant….
Finish this story by answering the following questions:
- Where do you think Andy was just before Joey ended up on the floor?
- If you were Joey, what would you do to find Andy?
- Where did Joey find Andy?
- What lesson did Joey and Andy learn from this experience at Adventureland?
