Peace Child Have you ever wondered why God send his child to Earth, when it must have hurt so much to let him go? You are invited to join us on a journey to the mythical land of Mambica, to hear a story which might help reveal the answer to this mystery... Two rival tribes, the Wannapeepees and the Sopongis, live on opposite sides of a mighty river. Their lifestyles and values differ greatly. Constantly trying to outdo each other by exhibiting their differing strengths, their fierce rivalry is only prevented from escalating by their separation of the river. The unexpected arrival of a Western TV crew, who see the tribal lifestyle as a perfect subject for a stunning, ground-breaking documentary, is at first seen as a pleasant break from the usual routine and they are welcomed. However, when they hit on the idea of building a bridge across the river to unite the two communities, the threat of war becomes a grave reality. As the bridge building proceeds, tension mounts and fear hangs over both tribes, but in the midst of this comes a joyful event - the arrival of the Wannapeepee Chief’s first born son. But the celebrations cannot last long as the prospect of war draws even closer. There seems to be no way out, until the Wannapeepee Chief receives an unnerving message in his dreams. In order to save his people from suffering, the Chief must sacrifice his son to the Sopongi tribe as a ‘Peace Child’. With the threat of war finally abated and the hope of peace rekindled, the tribes gather slowly together across the bridge to give thanks for this Peace Child and what his life will mean to them. Our journey now complete, we are reminded of the gift of the baby Jesus given to bring life and peace.
DVDs and photographs are available to order. Letters will be sent home later this week. Check out our school website: www.churchlaneschool.co.uk
