TALK: Mr. Kevin said there was something special in the balloon to make it go up and up. The balloon had helium in it. But Jesus didn't have helium in Him - He has something very different and way more special that is in Him, and can be in us to, to give us power... Look at Acts 1:8 and talk about what that something special is that can be in us too, if we ask Him into our heart!!!
MEMORIZE: Acts 1:8 (NIV) "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samari, and to the ends of the earth."
