We've been working on getting Joshua to memorize some Bible verses and catechism questions. He is doing a decent job so far, even if he doesn't get it right all the time. Actually, it takes quite a bit of work to get him to memorize them. Not that he has a bad memory, but he is not always willing. However, one day he picked up the little New Testament that was given him the last time we were in the States and did a Scripture "reading". Multiple times over. Amazingly, he was still doing it by the time I got the video camera out.
Two small comments before you watch the video: 1) that is baby Caitlin crying in the background and yes, she is okay (Mommy is with her), and 2) Joshua's emphasis upon certain parts of John 3:16 is entirely of his own doing. He was not coached to do that. Might we have an aspiring preacher on our hands?
