Years pass, until the Egyptians have no memory of Joseph. In fact, the Isrealites become slaves in Egypt. They are very numerous, however. Pharaoh doesn’t like this, since the country seems to be overrun with Israelites (too many of them!). So, he orders that all the newborn boys be thrown into the Nile to drown. One family goes to some extra measures to preserve the life of their son, Moses.
– Exodus 2:1-11
Moses grows up in the house of Pharaoh, just like one of his kids. Eventually, he learns the truth of his ancestry. Later he kills an Egyptian worker in a fight. Fearing for his life, he runs away. Eventually he find himself sitting by a well. There he meets his future wife (surprise, surprise!). Later on, while looking after his father-in-law’s sheep, God speaks to him with an extraordinary calling.
– Exodus 3:1-12
– Exodus 3:13-22
– Exodus 4:1-17
To fill in the story of Moses, please watch The Prince of Egypt together.

– What are some things that surprised you?
Once they are free from Egypt and in the wilderness, the people complain to Moses about the lack of food in the area. God provides.
– Exodus 16:13-36
While in the wilderness, God forms the Israelite people into a nation, complete with a code of law. At the center of it all lie the Ten Commandments.
– Exodus 20:1-17
After some time, they come to the borders of Canaan, the land that God promised to Abraham long ago (remember that?). They send out a few spies to check the land out, but they come back with different reports.
– Numbers 13:1-24
– Numbers 13:25-33

Youth Connect is doing World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine.
What: For 30 hours, we’re going to fast and raise funds to help hungry children around the world.
Why: Every day, nearly 8,000 kids are dying from hunger-related causes.
How you can help: Every $35 we raise can help feed and care for a child for one month. Our goal is to feed a child for a full year. Please visit http://youth.worldvision.org/team/16510 to donate. We can also use prayer. Please pray for us as we take on this challenge and pray for the children of this world who are struggling with hunger.
” Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own.” -Matthew 6:34
