Immanuel’s Advent Stories – Part One

advent story gift 1.png

As we prepare to put 2018 to rest, everyone who loves Jesus is making holiday celebration plans. Our Draw Disciples team has developed an exciting gift to give you and your family this year: a new Bible story set to help you walk through Jesus’ Nativity stories.

We will send you three stories each week. By Christmas, you will have all twelve stories in the set as an Advent gift from our Blazing Trees family. We hope you enjoy drawing these stories as a family, because we are confident these stories will draw you closer to our Lord Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit’s presence, peace, and power.

Your first three stories are below.

Announcement > We just published a new page on our website showcasing the Storytellers Bible project.

story drawing circleThe Storytellers Bible project is one innovative approach to Bible storytelling. We believe that all anyone needs to make disciples is God’s presence and power through the indwelling Holy Spirit and the stories of the Bible.

After a lot of prayer and discussions, our team was led by the Holy Spirit to begin developing these simple drawings that anyone can use and adapt to their own style of art and tribal cultures.

Our vision is to equip this generation to become a host of mobile, Spirit-filled storytellers scattered across all the nations. Maranatha!

Story List > Free Lesson Downloads

Below, we will add new story lessons often for you to use in discipleship with your family, friends, neighbors, and whatever harvest field you find yourself in each day.

All we need to do is walk in the Spirit and ask him what story he wants to tell to each person around us. Each story is a spiritual key from heaven to open up hearts and align lives to his kingdom.
