LITTLE CHILDREN RECEIVING THE WORD
We are constantly amazed how God is opening doors for training through this ministry in places and with people we never expected to work with. Some weeks ago, we shared the news of children at an orphanage in Myanmar being trained by going through God’s Plan for His Disciples. The goal is that they will eventually return to villages of their original birth and share from the Bible what they have learn.
Unexpectedly, we have the same thing happening in Nicaragua, Central America. Every Saturday morning for 3 hours, a church there went through GPHD with the children (ages 5-15). If they could not read, they would draw the principle from Scripture on the board and have the kids color in the diagrams on a piece of paper. The ones who could read and write actually filled out the questions in the book.
This is more than we can often get adults to do. This reminds us of Jesus’ words; “At that time Jesus declared, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children” (Matthew 11:25). He followed this up later with this startling statement; “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” (18:3).
How grateful we are to find this kind of hunger and appetite with children in other places. Our prayer is that what we discovered in Nicaragua will happen right where you live!
