The Alpha leaders distributed one of these kits to everyone who attended our second last Alpha session. The nine items were enclosed in a zip-lock bag along with a printed list of the use of each of the nine items. Bible references were included but the actual text was not. We have added the text from the King James version for your convenience.

We are unsure of the source and apologize to the creator for not extending the credit due for this fine idea. If the idea is yours or you know the source please let us know.

And they sent a messenger unto Joseph, saying, Thy father did command before he died, saying, So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him. And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we be thy servants. And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God? But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
