Meet Rory!

How Rory Follows Jesus

Rory helps his family clean their house. He thinks washing the dishes is fun. “Mummy can be really busy looking after five children and studying for her university degree,” Rory says. “So if I do something she normally would do, she can have a rest.”

Comforting others is another way Rory follows Jesus Christ. His little sister recently joined a new youth club. She was nervous to go the first time. Rory comforted her and told her it would be OK. “I wanted to help her so that she could have fun like I did when I went,” he says. “I felt good knowing that I helped her be happy.”
