Tell the story of Philip and the Ethiopian in a school assembly, a children’s program or in a preach
"They could see some green trees in the distance. They were approaching an oasis. What's an oasis? A place in the desert where there is water. It was lovely – a pool of water all fresh and cool. “What's to stop me being baptised here and now?” asked the Ethiopian. “Nothing at all,” replied Philip, “If you are sure you believe in Jesus, in his Father God, and in his Holy Spirit, and want to be a true follower of Jesus from now on, all your days....” “Yes, I do!” said the Ethiopian. So they stopped the wagon again, and he and Philip climbed out, and went into the water. It depends how deep it was – Philip might have dunked him under the water completely, or he might have cupped his hands in the water and poured some over him. It's a picture of being washed clean, not just on the outside, but on the inside, too."
A beautiful Bible story written by Korky and Anni Davey (OAC ministries) with an easy to do painting. You can however also tell the story without a painting.
