Our teacher gave us a story to read this morning about a boy in Laos. She said it’s not a story that actually happened, like you see on the news. But, she said it would help us find out what life is like for Christian kids in Laos because it was written based on things that have happened. I really liked Part One–it’s about a boy named Thao, a buried treasure (that wasn’t such a treasure), a hidden Bible, and strangers finding his village. I put Part One of the story here for you. She said she’ll let us read Part Two next week.
I wonder why Thao’s mom would hide the Bible. And who could be coming up the mountain? What do you think?
