Paul's Travels

We have been learning about Paul in the Bible, who travelled everywhere telling people about Jesus. We heard that he was thrown into prison because people didn’t like him doing this. But Paul and his friend Silas prayed and sang praise to God and He sent an earthquake to free them! And the jailer and his whole family decided to believe in Jesus. Another time, in today’s true story, we see that Paul was in great danger. Let’s watch the story and see what happened:

Time to Think and Pray


  • What did Paul spend all his time doing?

  • What did Paul tell people about Jesus?

  • What happened to Paul and the others on the journey to Rome?

  • What did they have to do to be safe?

  • What did the people of Malta do for Paul and the others?

  • What happened as Paul collected wood for the fire?

  • What did Paul do about the snake?

  • What did the people expect to happen to Paul?

  • Was Paul really in danger? Why/why not?



It seemed as though Paul was in great danger in our story today. The ship he was on crashed and he was bitten by a snake! In these two situations there was a big chance he could have died! But he wasn’t afraid because he knew God was taking care of him every step of the way. And it is the same for us! If we believe in Jesus and live our lives for him then bad things may still happen but we don’t need to worry or be afraid. We can be sure that God is with us keeping us safe and helping us through any troubles we have.


Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you that you are always with us. When bad things happen, please help us not to be worried or be afraid. Help us to remember that we can trust you to take care of us and help us through them. Amen
