Episode 6: follow the story of Genesis from creation to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob

Abraham and Sarah didn't know how God would keep his promise to give them children, because they were so old. God appeared to Abraham and reminded him to trust and have faith in God's promise, no matter how long it took.

Sarah laughed when she heard she'd have a son, because she didn't believe it. But God kept his promise and Abraham and Sarah had a son when Abraham was 100 years old! This time, Sarah laughed out of joy because God was faithful to all his promises.

Suitable for primary school aged children.
