With the help of a secular YouTube video and creative activities we encourage the children to think about today's Bible story.
Under a wishing fountain lives a little man who, through a computer makes wishes come true when people throw money into the fountain. One day, things go wrong and two coins get stuck. The man has to do his utmost to grant the wishes after all.
