This month we are learning all about how Jesus is our good friend. This really fits into our three basic truths we learn here in Waumba Land: God loves me, God made me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever. All month long, we’re learning about our good friend Jesus. When He went to visit Mary and Martha, all He wanted to do was spend time with them. Today we’ll learn how Jesus was their good friend, and He’s your good friend too!
