The Apostle Paul expressed his heart when he wrote, “I make it my ambition to preach the gospel, not where Christ has already been named, lest I build on someone else’s foundation, but as it is written,
‘Those who have never been told of him will see, and those who have never heard will understand'” (Romans 15:20-21).
Paul’s desire is happening every Tuesday afternoon at our weekly Kids’ Bible Club! Every week a dozen or so kids are coming to an after-school program where we are allowed to run a Bible Club. We teach them a memory verse, teach a Bible lesson, give them worksheets to fill out, and play games with them. It’s amazing!
I want to share what happened last week. I was teaching on Abraham being called to sacrifice his only son. The kids’ reactions were precious. They were scared, even covering their eyes when I painted Abraham’s hand and knife. THEY HAD NEVER HEARD THIS STORY BEFORE. They didn’t know what was going to happen. We have un-reached people right here in America. 8-13 year-old’s are so uninformed about basic Bible stories.
The kids were SO RELIEVED when God provided the sacrifice, and they listened SO WELL when I explained that GOD GAVE HIS ONLY SON to take away our sins.
Please pray for these precious children that they will receive God’s Word and turn from their sin, trust in Jesus, and experience new birth.
Times like these make me feel so privileged to be a Missionary and be able to share God’s truth to those who have never heard! When you support our work, you’re a part of what God is doing.
Please enjoy the following photos of this amazing club with these wonderful kids.
Thank you for your prayers, notes of encouragement, and financial support. Without all of those, we could not be reaching the lost for Jesus Christ!
Please feel free to share this with others you think would be encouraged by it!
all for Jesus,
Mark (and family)
