One day Jesus went with His disciples in a boat and crossed over a lake called Galilee. – Slide 1
As soon as Jesus arrived on the beach many people were waiting for Him. They listened as He told them stories about God and watched as He healed everyone who was sick. – Slide 2
Jesus helped people all day and when He finished everyone was tired and hungry. The disciples told Jesus to send the people home so they could get something to eat before it went dark. – Slide 3
Jesus decided to do something very special and He asked His disciples to find all the food they could. This made the disciples worried because there was nowhere to buy food. How could they feed all these people? – Slide 4
One of the disciples called Andrew brought a little boy to Jesus who had 5 loaves of bread and 2 fishes. ‘How can we feed so many people with just this food?’ asked Andrew. Jesus smiled and thanked the little boy. – Slide 5
Then just as it was going dark Jesus told everyone to sit down. He took the bread and fishes and blessed the food before He broke it into pieces. Then Jesus told the disciples to take the bread and fish and share it with all the people. – Slide 6
As the disciples gave out the food suddenly they realised that Jesus had done a miracle! There was enough bread and fish for all the people. Everyone had food to eat and they were very happy! – Slide 7
Then Jesus told His disciples to gather together all the bits of food that the people had not eaten. They collected 12 baskets of left over food! God had given food to more than 5000 men, women and children because He loved them! – Slide 8
