Bible story: Elisha and the siege of Samaria

Creative activities based on the Bible story of Elisha and the siege of Samaria

In 2 Kings chapters 6: 24 -7:20, we find the story of Elisha and the siege of Samaria by the Aramean army. The city was suffering from a great famine and the people were starving, but Elisha prophesied that God would provide for them. Four lepers decided to go to the Aramean camp and ask for mercy or food, but when they arrived they found that the entire army had fled and left behind all their food and supplies. The lepers brought the news to the city and the people were saved from starvation. This story teaches us the power of faith and God's provision, and how He can use even the most unexpected people to bring about His plans and purposes. It also shows us the importance of trusting in God's protection and provision, even in times of great need.
