I am Charmaine Ajao the Head of the Children's Department in Hosanna Chapel, Helsinki Finland. Hosanna Chapel is part of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. In our Children's Department we have two separate classes. The first class is for children from 3 - 6 years and the second class is for children from 7 - 11 years. We are a total of 12 teachers, 8 for the first class and 4 for the second class. The vision for 2010 was to start using the Global University syllabus. We purchased the books and the instructors guide from Malta and we started using the K-1 book on God's Creation with the children of the first class. There is a total of 12 children that are using the book so far. Obviously the plan is to continue also with the children of the second class. However, this is a gradual process, since the teachers had to be trained on the use No nation has ever set the child in the midst more deliberately than the Jews did. In fact, Barclay states "It would not be wrong to say that for the Jew the child was the most important person in the community (1959, 11). Rabbi Judah the Holy was the one who articulated the well-known saying, "the world exists only to breath the breath of school children" . As a young Jewish boy, Jesus’ parents made sure, he grows in the four major areas of His life. Jesus grew in wisdom stature and in favor with God and men (Luke 2:52). Jesus grew in all areas as a person. By exercise and work He grew physically strong (body); by study and thought He cultivated His mind (wisdom); by prayer and hearing God's word He was spiritually alert (favor with God); by showing love and concern He became socially and emotionally acceptable (favor with man) (Miles 1976, 52). Consequently, Churches are to give the best they have for the education of their children. Normally this takes place in the Sunday School.

The children love the book and love the lessons. Since we started using the book there was a drastic improvement in the behavior of the children. With the use of the book, we teachers tried to put more structure to the lesson, and the children absorbed the new system very well. Even though before we had a structured way how to do the lessons, yet the children themselves were given loose papers to draw on. Thus in the end they did not take the papers home. Now when they carry the book with them home they have ownership of the book. They take pride in looking at their previous work. Also, before the start of the lesson they are eagerly running to their parents to get the book to be ready for the lesson. During class they enthusiastically follow the lesson. Thus, we are very pleased that we agreed to start using the materials from the Global University since we are seeing great results in our beloved children. It is a good way to 'train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it' (Proverbs 22:6).
