|Here is Maddie as Christoper Columbus|
Did you know??
*His mother felt that her new-born son had a great mission to do for God. She knew that he would some day do great things and bring God's light and His truth to far-off lands.
*It is for this reason that she named him Christopher--"Christo-ferens", which means the "Christ Bearer".
*When Christopher was a young man he read in his Bible in the book of John. He came to chapter 10. Jesus was teaching His disciples and he said..."I am the good shepherd. There are other sheep I have, which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice, and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. "Christoper realized then that there were other people in the world that no one else knew about, and he felt his mission from God was to find them.
|Here Christopher is pondering the far off lands and how to get there.|
|He prays about it, and has an idea!|
|His pockets are empty and so he decides to take a||trip and try and find some money for the trip.|
