In a very unique way, God has led this ministry to take our training book, God’s Plan for His Disciples (GPHD) and transform it into a booklet for children. This idea grew out of watching a mother in Nicaragua, Central America, take GPHD and teach children from 5 to 15 in the simple principles of being a disciple. The new book, God’s Plan for Young Disciples (GPYD), combines Bible stories and pictures that children can color and learn how to be a disciple of Jesus.
This reminds me of Jesus’ heart for children. “Now they were bringing even infants to Him that He might touch them. And when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them to Him, saying, “Let the children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God” (Luke 18:15–16).
The fact is that children will often grasp biblical principles and ideas much faster than adults. That is why Jesus thanked the Father and said; “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). They were those who had not been tainted by years of tradition and habits.
Pray for us as we develop this tool so it becomes an effective tool in reaching children around the world. These young disciples will often accomplish what those of us who are older cannot do.
