PSALM 146: 5-7

Read this story from the local newspaper here in Exeter, UK.....A 5yrs old girl sharing her faith to her 6yrs old classmate...


Girl, 5, told off at school for talking of God

A HEADTEACHER has defended his actions after a religious row erupted at a Devon school where a five-year- old girl told a classmate she would "go to hell" if she did not believe in God.

The youngster, a pupil at Landscore Primary School, Threshers, in Crediton, complained to her mother after she was told off for the comment.

Her mum, Jennie Cain, who works as a receptionist at the school, is under investigation for professional misconduct after she sent a private email to friends about the matter.

Mrs Cain, of Queen Elizabeth Drive, Crediton, initially complained to Jasmine's teacher.

Her daughter had come home in tears and said she had been told off for "talking about Jesus".

The 38-year-old mother was then called into headteacher Gary Read's office about the matter.

The email, written after this meeting, which asked friends to pray for her and her daughter, fell into the hands of Mr Read.

It allegedly contained claims against the school and its staff.

Mr Read defended the school's treatment of the matter and said they encouraged all children to "think independently", but would not condone one child "frightening" another.

He said: "We have 271 children in our school from a diversity of backgrounds.

"We encourage all our children to think independently and discuss their beliefs with their teachers and classmates when it is appropriate to do so.

"What we do not condone is one child frightening a six-year-old with the prospect of 'going to hell' if she does not believe in God.

"We conveyed to her mother, in a perfectly respectful manner, that we do not expect it to happen again."

Although Mrs Cain, who also has a son, has not been suspended, an investigation by the governors of the school is being held over the matter.

Mrs Cain, who has worked part-time at the school for two-and-a-half years, said her and her children's beliefs had not been respected.

"My daughter said, 'My teacher told me I couldn't talk about Jesus' — I couldn't believe what I was hearing," she said.

"She said she was taken aside in the classroom and told she couldn't say that. I was so shocked, I didn't know what to do."

Mrs Cain added: "I feel my beliefs are so central to who I am, are such a part of my children's life.

"I do feel our beliefs haven't been respected and I don't feel I have been treated fairly."

The mum has described herself as a "quiet Christian" who would never force her beliefs on others. Religious groups have condemned the school's action.

Mrs Cain's case is being supported by the Christian Institute, which says the case is an example of a Christian being persecuted by society.

Mike Judge, from the Christian Institute, said: "It is really getting to a point where it has to stop. I think the Government has got to start looking at its legislation.

"Christians are in the firing line, not other minority groups."

David Hutchings, spokesman for children and young people's services at Devon County Council, declined to comment on the current investigation but said: "The study and diversity of world religions is an integral part of curriculum."

Last week, nurse Caroline Petrie, from Weston- super-Mare, was told that she could go back to work, having been suspended for two months after offering to pray for a patient.

Japanese Dinner Nite

It was a blessed night....We thanked the LORD for the women He brought out for dinner.
Thanks to Shannon for the pictures.....I forgot to bring our camera.
We had Tappenyanki, learned a little bit about Okinawan/Japanese Culture.
None of the girls had Tappenyaki nor Yakiniku before so it was a treat for them.
There was a time of encouragement in the WORD and also some prayer time to lift each other up.

Calvary Chapel Exeter: First Sunday Service

Snow in Exeter!

Amazing! It started snowing in Exeter today, it has been several years that it has snowed here. London has also been hammered with snow bringing the airports and trains stations to a stand still. The snow flakes have been huge almost the size of a nickel. It is fore casted to snow until 2300 tonight.

Stop at the Mayflower steps...

On our way home from Buckland Monachrum we made a stop in Plymouth. We visited the Mayflower steps, it is the exact location that in the year 1620 the pilgrims boarded the Mayflower and 2 other ships to make their way to the United States for many freedoms. It was an amazing place to visit and to think that the start of a new nation was birthed at those very steps.

We didn't get to visit the museum because it was closed. But we hope to come back and visit and spend some more time. Right behind the Mayflower steps is the Hoe, it the place that Sir Francis Drake was playing ball while the Spanish Armada made their way up the English Channel to attack England until a strong wind came and blew them out of the channel. Again, it is remarkable how much history there is in the area in which we live.

Visit to Buckland Monachorum

For church this morning we went to visit Simon's fathers church. He is an Anglican Vicar and his Parish is in Buckland Monachorum. It is a small village on the outskirts of Plymouth. It was their family service, the kids had a great time going up front. It was an amazing village that had many beautiful views to offer. All in all we had a great day, we joined the Cotter family at the Vicarage for a Sunday roast after service.

The church was amazing, it was built before the United States of America was even found. It was built in 1490. Not only that, but it was the church the Sir Francis Drake attended as he was from Buckland Monachorum. His family is burried under the church. We are so blessed as the Lord allows us to be here, a place filled with much history.

Micah's Birthday Dinner

For Micah's Birthday we finished with some Arroz con Pollo, it was a Puerto Rican recipe given to us by Cindy Langley, thanks Cindy.

Day to Day

Here in UK, within three months time frame from November 2008 to Jan 2009 the national job loss figure is has soared to 1.92 million, the highest for more than a decade.

Almost every week in Exeter a store is closing down on the High Street or they are having their liquidation sale to close the following week. Please pray for us that the LORD would use us here in the times of difficulties and struggles here, that we would be a beacon of light to tell them about their hope can be in JESUS.
