Transformation comes when we not only tell children how they can join with God in His story, but also give them opportunities to do so. Here is an example of how one group of African leaders are empowering children in their community.
What do your children do on a Sunday afternoon? In Goma, a city in the Democratic Republic of Congo, children from ten different churches meet on Sunday afternoons to receive evangelism training! With the help of their leaders, they spend an hour digging deep into God’s Word, memorizing Scripture, and learning how to share the love and message of Jesus with others.
They will get an opportunity to practice what they are learning when they minister at a primary school that serves many vulnerable and orphaned children. This team of child evangelists will bring the hope of Jesus by sharing God’s Word with the students and praying for them. Praise God for these young ambassadors for Christ and for all the children (and adults) who will hear about Jesus through them.
