As Jesus began to follow Jairus to his house, a great crowd followed Him. They were pressing against Him and it was very difficult to move. – Slide 3

It was very hard for the woman to get through the crowd but finally she did and as soon as she touched Jesus she was completely healed! – Slide 5
Jesus knew straight away that someone had touched Him and when the woman admitted it was her, He smiled and told her ‘Daughter do not be afraid. Your faith has made you well. Go in peace.’ – Slide 6
As Jesus said these words a man came from the home of Jairus and told him that his daughter was dead. When Jesus heard this He turned to Jairus and said ‘Do not be afraid. Only believe and your daughter will be well.’ – Slide 7
When they arrived at Jairus’ house everyone was crying. Jesus made all the people go away. Then He took the girl’s parents and His disciples into the room where she lay. – Slide 8
