A Kid's Club Story

Some little girls stole my heart in March. When I drove up on the first day of Kid's Club an eight year old named Chalea came running to greet me. We ran around some, played on the swings, did the craft, and blew some bubbles. Then I asked if she’d like to sit down and read a children’s Bible together. She said “yes”. Pretty soon some more girls came over to listen to the stories we were reading. None of the girls seemed very familiar with any of the most common stories. At the end of the day I gave each of the girls a children’s Bible to keep. They were beaming as we said our “see ya laters”.

The next day at the beginning of Kids Club, Chalea came running to me with a huge smile on her face. She couldn’t wait to tell me that she had read 115 pages in her new Bible on her own! All she wanted to do, in the midst of all of the fun activities at Kids Club, was find a quiet place to sit and read with me again. Please pray for Chalea and all the other children in Totus Park and Adams View. Pray that the Lord will give all of them a hunger for Him and for His Word like little Chalea’s. Pray that He would protect them, provide for them, bless them, draw them to Himself, fill them with His Spirit, and use them to transform this community for its good and His glory.

Please pray to that all the funds would come in to finish out the work on the new building and that this facility would be a “spring board” or a “launch pad” for even better things for the community of White Swan. To give click here.
