Materials Needed:

  • Internet access
  • What are some hard jobs you’ve been asked to do? (Answers may include: Mow and weed the lawn; complete a science fair project at school; be kind to a mean kid in my class, etc.)
  • How did you manage to get those tough assignments finished? (Answers will vary.)

In life, we will face many seemingly impossible tasks. It’s how we get those jobs done that matters. Pearl Johnson is the youngest person to have ever climbed El Capitan, a 3,000 ft. sheer mountain wall in Yosemite National Park. In October of 2019, she completed this incredible climb at only nine years old! She even beat the record of a ten-year-old who completed that climb earlier in the year. To say this is an incredibly hard and challenging feat feels like an understatement.

Pearl Johnson, 9, is Youngest to Climb El Capitan 
(If time allows, you can read the brief article out loud to your class.)

  • What do you think of Pearl and what she accomplished? (Answers might include: She’s amazing; she’s a hard-worker; she is really determined, etc.)
  • How do you think you would feel if you did something like that? (Answers will vary.)
  • How do you think the relationship between Pearl and her mom helped her complete the climb? (Some possible answers: She gave her help and guidance the whole time; she trusts her mom, so she knew she was safe and could do it with her help; she encouraged her the entire time, etc.)
  • Who do you ask for help when you need it? (Answers will vary.)

Pearl’s mom helped guide her through her climb of El Capitan, safely guiding Pearl the entire time.  She couldn’t have completed the climb without her.

Today we’re going to talk about how Moses was given a God-sized assignment to complete. Moses was sure the job was too much for him to do. But, as we’ll discover, just like Pearl, Moses also had an expert—The Expert—available to help him complete his assignment. Let’s find out more about this fascinating story.
