This year has been the craziest year of my life. Two months ago, we were in slavery when a guy named Moses, who used to be an Egyptian prince, told us that he was going to free us from Egypt. We didn’t think he could, because Pharoh would never let us go. The next day, Moses did wonderful signs to try to make Pharoh let us go.
First, we didn’t have any water because Moses turned all the water in the land of Egypt to blood, but Pharoh would not let us go. Then, we had to deal with frogs, but Pharoh would still not let us go. Then, we had to deal with lice, but Pharoh would still not let us go. Thank the Lord the plagues 4-10 did not harm us. Only plagues 1-3 harmed us. The 4th plague was flies, the 5th plague was animal livestock dying, the 6th plague was boils on the Egyptians, the 7th was hailstones and storms, the 8th was locust (grasshoppers), and the 9th was darkness, but Pharoh would still not let us go. We were safe from plagues 4-9 at Goshen.
Now the last plague was tragic for all the Egyptians, even Pharoh. It was when the angel of death killed all the firstborn of all the Egyptian families. We were to prepare for this plague by putting lamb’s blood on the doorposts and lintel on the Hebrew houses. That night, the Angel of Death passed over the houses with the lamb blood on it, but it killed all the firstborn of the Egyptians. After that plague, Pharoh finally let us go. Who knows what lies ahead?
