Esther Saves Her People


Primary 6 Lesson 38: Esther Saves Her People- To learn how fasting blesses our lives

One of the things that I have noticed my children having problems with is what exactly to fast for. Having the right thing to fast about makes all the difference in the world so I made a handout to write down ideas- the more specific the better.
