Earlier this year, our church chose to help a pastor in Myanmar start a goat farm for their congregation to become self-supporting. The week before the project was introduced to our congregation, I had the opportunity to teach the preschool class about Nehemiah returning to Jerusalem to help rebuild the walls of the city. We talked about ways we can be a helper at home (picking up our toys), how we can help at our church (passing out water bottles at an upcoming consignment sale), and ways we can help people around the world that we may never see (the Give-A-Goat project).
