Once there was a man named Abram who loved God very much and had faith in Him. Abram and his wife, Sarai lived in the city of Haran. Abram had faith in God.
God loved Abram and Sarai but God also loved all of the other families in the world. So, God made a plan to bless everyone. His plan was that he would use Abram and Sarai to to have a very big family. Everyone in the world would someday be blessed through Abram’s family.
So, one day God told Abram to leave his country and his relatives and to go to a new land that he would show him. God did not say where the new land was. He just told Abram to go and that He would show him later.
