Jonah is one
of my favorite stories to tell children. Jonah was given a job to do; to tell the people of Nineveh to repent. But Jonah ran and went the opposite direction bought a ticket to ride on a boat, God caused a storm to come up and the sailors knew, the calamity of the storm was because of Jonah, so they threw him overboard. He was swallowed by a fish, spent three days in the belly and then was spit out onto dry land. He then goes to Nineveh and a revival occurs. The saddest part of the story is that Jonah is depressed after the victory.
