Elijah,

TheWidow
and the Bread

Elijah lived in a place that had many false gods.

Elijah was a prophet that taught about The One True God.

There was no more rain where he lived.

There was little food where he lived.

God said to Elijah, "Go to Zerephath. There is a widow there who will feed you."
Elijah left to go Zerephath.

He found the widow and asked her for bread and water.

"I'm sorry," she said, "I have just enough flour and oil for bread for my son and me"

"Go ahead and bake the bread.  God will see that we will have enough," Elijah said.

She did as Elijah said.

She baked a loaf a bread.

There was still flour and oil left.

The next day she baked another loaf of bread.

There was still flour and oil left.

She baked bread everyday and never ran out of flour or oil.

God took good care of them.
