02:02 "Let us love one another," "Let us love one another,"
02:09 "for love comes from God." "for love comes from God."
02:16 We're gonna talk about another special place in our world.
02:22 Well, let's see if we can guess kids.
02:24 And it starts with a "T."
02:25 Oh, where do you think she's--
02:26 And the first part goes Trini...
02:30 I know. The other one, it's not your mom but it's your?
02:35 Dad. Yeah, he's got it.
02:38 Trinidad. Right.
02:41 And it's a wonderful place and I hope someday
02:44 that I get to go visit too but--
02:46 I would love to visit it.
02:48 Well, we're all so busy on the tiny tot farm.
02:50 I've never been to Trinidad. Had you been to Trinidad?
02:53 No. Oh.
02:55 Well, I'm gonna tell you a story about a little boy
02:58 and his name was Charlie.
03:02 And Charlie loved to play
03:05 and he loved to swim in the river
03:07 and then he would go some times to the big city.
03:10 And one time he went to the big city
03:13 and you know what Charlie had?
03:15 He had a mommy but he didn't have a daddy anymore.
03:19 His daddy had gotten sick and he was gone.
03:22 So he didn't have a daddy.
03:24 And so he didn't have nice cloths
03:26 'cause his mommy worked really hard
03:28 but she didn't have money to get him nice cloths.
03:31 And when he go and play with the other kids,
03:33 they would make fun of him.
03:35 And one day he went to a church and the teacher said,
03:39 "We're gonna take all of you boys and girls,
03:43 to the park, in the-- nice place
03:46 and it's by a little river and you can go swimming."
03:49 And some of the boys said, "Don't take him, he is dirty."
03:54 Oh, that's mean. I know.
03:56 And Charlie felt so sad
03:57 because he knew how to swim really good.
04:01 And the teacher said, "No, we're going to take Charlie."
04:05 And then the boys said, "Well, I sure hope,
04:07 he takes a bath before he comes and get some good cloths on."
04:12 None of you kids would have done that, wouldn't you?
04:14 No. No, that's mean.
04:16 He felt really sad but on the day of the picnic,
04:20 he went to the picnic and all the kids were playing
04:24 and some were swimming and the teacher said,
04:27 "Don't go out into the dangerous part of the river
04:30 because you could drowned."
04:33 You know, what it means to drowned?
04:34 What? To sink in the water.
04:36 That's right.
04:38 And Charlie stood on the bank and he watched
04:41 but nobody would play with him.
04:44 And then all of once he saw a little boy go way
04:49 jump out and go way over in the deep part
04:52 where he wasn't supposed to
04:53 and he started going down
04:54 and he was yelling, help, help, help.
04:57 And he was trying to get attention and nobody was,
05:01 they were afraid to go over there.
05:02 And so all at once,
05:03 Charlie just jumped off the little rock
05:06 and he went right into the deep water
05:08 and he started swimming, really fast can you help me swim.
05:11 Oh, swim, swim. Help Charlie swim.
05:13 He was swimming faster and faster and faster.
05:15 And all of once he got the little boy from behind
05:18 and he got him and he started swimming fast
05:20 and he got to the shore.
05:22 And when he got to shore the teacher pulled him up
05:24 and he was okay because Charlie had saved him.
05:27 And all the people were around the little boy
05:29 and saying, "Oh, I'm so glad you're okay."
05:32 And Charlie was standing there all by himself
05:35 and one of the boys said, "Who did it?"
05:37 And they said, "Oh, Charlie."
05:38 And he said, "Oh, he is poor,
05:40 let's just take up some money and will give him some money."
05:43 And you know what? What?
05:44 That isn't what Charlie wanted.
05:46 And they took up some money
05:48 and the teacher took it to Charlie
05:49 and said, "Here is some money."
05:51 And he looked at the money and he said,
05:52 "I don't want the money."
05:54 She said, "What do you want?"
05:56 he said, "I just want some love like
05:58 they're giving that little boy."
06:01 And the teacher said, "You're gonna get love."
06:04 And she just put her arms around and hugged him
06:07 real tight and she said, "From now on,
06:10 we're gonna make sure that your part of everything."
06:12 And Charlie smiled.
06:15 And you know Jesus wants us to love everybody doesn't He?
06:19 Yes, He does. Yes.
06:20 And we need to treat others with love too.
06:24 You know, just like Eleanor is different from Mr. Wiggles.
06:29 That's right. But Eleanor, loves our Mr. Wiggles doesn't Eleanor?
06:34 And he doesn't eat Mr. Wiggles.
06:37 No, he doesn't. Even though Eleanor is a hunting dog.
06:42 And Mr. Rabbit is different.
06:43 Eleanor, loves Jesus. That's right.
06:45 Elizabeth, would you have special prayer us

21:28 Oh, look at his little feet go.
21:30 He's a baby, isn't he? I can hold it.
21:32 Yeah. He's a little baby.
21:33 Oh. Isn't he special?
21:35 I love all the things Jesus made.
21:37 Oh, look at his design underneath.
21:38 Look, look at the design underneath on his belly.
21:41 Isn't he pretty? Yeah.
21:43 Look God painted him so special.
21:45 God makes everything so special. He does.
21:48 You know, I think he's a baby
21:49 and he probably wandered away from home.
21:51 So let's go see if we can find his home.
21:53 How's that sound? All right.
21:55 I'm just so glad that God made
21:57 all this stuff for us to enjoy outside.
22:00 Let's go.
22:01 Well, no-- Come on.
22:03 No, let's go down here by the water.
22:04 I think he should be by the water.
22:06 Let's go and see if we can find.
22:07 Oh. Yeah.
22:08 Be careful with him.
22:10 We don't want to hurt him because he's God's creature.
22:11 Yeah, and I'm holding it very careful.
22:13 Very good. Thank you.
22:24 I love Jesus so much.
22:26 I do too. Me too.
22:28 And we have a special Bible verse
22:30 that we've been learning all day today.
22:32 Oh, yes. And it talks about His love.
22:33 Can we say it again together?
22:35 That would be nice, Miss Cinda.
