No who-what-when-where-how; we cannot say any lousy excuses and most of all, we cannot say no. It's Irrevocable.
I can no longer remember how many times my sisters in WIN Sharjah invited me to join the Kids Ministry. Since majority of our Bible Study group are Friday School teachers, they always encourage me to join the ministry, and I always and repeatedly say no.
No because it's not my line of interest. No because I am also playful and maybe, I cannot discipline the kids. No because I'm afraid I can't teach them properly. No because, and because and because...

Yes, God is full of surprises... but who am I to complain?
When He called, I responded. Without any condition, without but's and if's... I should be ready.
This is where God placed me... teaching the toddlers of the church. The youngest believers and the most precious in His heart...
And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. (Matthew 18:4-5)
I was overwhelmed. Admittedly, I was hesitant to take the first step... I never imagine that I will be joining the children's ministry as a teacher. I can assists, clean then room and serve the food... but to be a teacher is another story.
I know I cant... without Jesus Christ. Without the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Without the grace of God.
But now, I look forward to every Sundays that I can be with the kids. I'm more than excited to play, to pray and to praise our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ with them.
#WhenGodCalls, we can never choose where to go, whom to minister and when we can start. He just put us at the right place at the right time at the right purpose...
