Elijah was hungry and thirsty. Without any rain the food had all gone. God said, ‘Go to another town and find a widow lady and her boy.’ – Slide 1
Elijah went to the town and found them picking up wood for their fire. ‘Please will you give me a drink of water and a little bread?’ he asked. – Slide 2
She said, ‘I only have a little flour and a little oil for one last bread roll.’<br/>‘Cook one for me first and there will be enough for you both,’ he told her. – Slide 3
‘Don’t worry. God told me that He will give us enough to eat. We will trust God.’ – Slide 4
So the lady trusted God and did what Elijah said. When she looked in the flour bin there was flour left for the next day. – Slide 5
Until the rain came and the corn and wheat grew, there was always oil in her jar and flour for bread. – Slide 6
Then Elijah went back home. In the Bible we can read how God looked after them. God will look after you, too. – Slide 7
