Ideas that children can do before the programme starts. Suitable for children's work, where children gradually drop in.

Today we are going to hear a story about Hagar who runs away from Sarai, because Sarai makes her life difficult. She runs away, but is seen and 'tagged' by God. He has an assignment for her: go back to Abram and Sarai. But fortunately He also has a promise for her: many descendants and a powerful son whom she may call Ishmael - God who listens.
