Encourage Children to Trust in God with Our Have Faith Not Fear Tenty.
This Have Faith Not Fear Tenty is a freestanding pop-up tent card based on Christ's healing of blind Bartimaeus in Mark 10:46-52. It features a cute image of a blindfolded child on the front along with the encouraging title: Have faith, not fear. The phrase, "I don't have to see God to know He's there," is also presented. On the back, there is a large set of cartoon eyes as well as the Scripture passage from Mark 10:52.
“And Jesus saith to him: Go thy way, thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he saw, and followed him in the way.”
How to Use the Have Faith Not Fear Tenty
