Chapter One
‘Do I have to Go?’

Five-year-old Aaron Foster clutched his seven-year-old sister Lacey’s hand. His round blue eyes looked scared. “D-do I have to go?”
“Of course, silly.” Lacey patted her little brother’s hand. She didn’t let him see that she was a little frightened, too. If only Mom had been able to bring them to church for the first time since they moved to Seattle. Lacy sighed. Mom kept saying things would get better once Dad got out of the hospital. But it seemed forever ago that he got hurt at work and the Fosters had to sell their home in the country so they could be near Dad. Now Mom was too sick with flu to stay at church.
“Nothing is the same here,” Aaron complained. He looked at the green-painted walls of the church hallway. “Our other church had yellow walls.”
“Here’s your room,” Lacey told him.
Aaron peeked in, saw the strange children and teacher, and clung to Lacey. He put his free hand to his mouth. “Can’t I go with you?”
“No. Mom said she called our teachers, and they’re expecting us.” Lacey looked down at Aaron. “Hey, there’s nothing to be scared of.” She knew she was talking to herself as much as to her brother.
“1-1 don’t know anyone.” He squeezed Lacey’s hand even harder.
What should she do? She had promised Mom to look after Aaron when Mom dropped them off at the church just a few blocks from the Fosters’ new home. Then Lacey remembered. “Aaron, Dad always says we have a Friend with us every minute of every day. When you go to class you do know Someone who is here. You know Jesus! Remember how many times God helped the Bible people who had to go to strange lands?”
“Y -e-s.” Aaron still looked doubtful, but he let go of his sister’s hand.
“Let’s trust Him, okay?’
Before Aaron could answer, a boy with sparkly dark eyes looked up and saw the children in the open doorway. He leaped up and ran over. “Hi, I’m Ali. You must be Aaron. Our teacher said you were coming. I live near you. Do you like to make things?” He grinned real big. “Come on, Aaron. You can sit by me.”
