Blessed are those…

Blessed are those…

Blessed are those…


 

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness.” Matthew 5:6.
 

When you read those words, who do you usually think “those”is? Do you think of adults? Seniors? Kids?

 


 

If I’m honest, kids aren’t the first group of people I think of when I read those words, but that’s precisely what we’ve been seeing in kids this summer!
 

Here’s what our Crew have shared with us:
 

“A girl with very little Christian influence in her life was asking such deep amazing questions about God and the Bible and also loved to pray. I could tell God was really working in her heart, and she asked for a Bible so she could know God more. She said, ‘Thank you’ repeatedly for the Bible when she was given one” -Abigail
 

“After the first day, the kids had so many questions about God and the Trinity and how Jesus died. Even though only a small number of them got counselled for salvation, I could see God working in them.” -Arianna


“Many of the kids in middle school that came to club, had a lot of questions about the Catholic Church, pluralism, the Trinity, etc. During counselling times, I could feel the Holy Spirit helping me remember verses and passages in the Scripture to show the kids. Even outside of teaching times, the kids would pick up on everything we said.” -Keren


In a time where so much can distract us from the gospel, it has been so encouraging to hear that kids are hungry and thirsty for the gospel.
 

From the hymn, “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus,” it’s often my prayer that kids would:
 

“Turn [their] eyes upon Jesus,

Look full in His wonderful face,

And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,

In the light of His glory and grace.”


 

Whether you are able to give once, or monthly, we thank you for your unwavering support.
