Read this verse with your family:
Religion that pleases God the Father must be pure and spotless. You must help needy orphans and widows and not let this world make you evil.
Ask your parents what these verses mean. How do they make you feel? What do they tell us about God? How do you think God might want us to behave?
Then pray this prayer:
Dear Jesus, I am so glad you take care of kids without parents. I know some kids without parents, especially in Africa, are hurting this year and need people who will take good care of them. Please send people to take good care of them and please help people here in my country and my town to do what we can to help. Jesus, help us to think before we buy chocolate and find out if it might be chocolate that has hurt some kids around the world. Amen.
Then color this color sheet and pray for all the kids in Africa without parents. When you color in the heart, that heart is where Cote D'Ivoire is. Color it and say a special prayer for all the kids who have to work on chocolate farms.
