The kids are amazed to watch the transformation of a sinner like Zacchaeus when he meets Jesus. Joy sees that Jesus came to seek and save the lost–including herself! Joy realizes that she also needs to accept Jesus as her Savior–just as Zacchaeus did and begins to understand why Chris is so excited about being baptized. Joy prays to receive Jesus and then shares the good news with her parents. ”
