Jerry Jacoby was back for Elementary SEW last week. He brought his wife Michaella, some new songs, and lots of laughs. He also told some very important stories about life and faith in God. He involved the teachers in helping hold signs or lead motions for different songs, which is why I'm standing next to him with my arms in the air in this photo.
One day Jerry told the Bible story of the shepherd who searched for his lost sheep. This was a really moving story about how God searches for those He calls His own and doesn't give up searching until they are safely home with Him.
You can see the delight on this student's face as she laughs at one of Jerry's jokes or silly songs.
All the kids got involved in the fun!
Elmer, the chicken on the right, is Jerry and Michaella's adopted chicken. He tells jokes and does crazy things that illustrate Jerry's lessons for the audience. This year the Jacobys adopted Elmer's sister as well (Elmer's mom has about 1,218 kids, Jerry said...she is a chicken afterall) and she is named Popcorn. The kids had so much fun "meeting" her and watching the two of them do the chicken dance together!
