Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary (Galatians 6:9). 

I would like to thank you for your help and support for our ministry in Kineshma. Your help and prayers are especially needed at this time in our country!

We had fruitful Gospel outreaches over Christmas and the New Year. Many new children joined us and are now gladly visiting our “Superbook” Bible club. Adults and the children’s parents are also attending the meetings, and they seem to like it. We are happy that the Word of God is reaching them. Though the process is slow, we believe that the seeds planted by us will bring forth fruit in God’s timing!

The Bible course for the children includes cartoons based on Bible topics, along with Bible study, games, singing, and pondering the meaning of God’s Word in our lives. Believers in our church are bathing these meetings in prayer for each child and the parents. We also held a separate meeting with the children called “CROSS,” where we taught on the death of Jesus Christ for the sins of His people. It was one of the most moving meetings we held, with children and adults being invited to pray and ask the Lord to forgive their sins. The children prayed, and some of them wept. The second meeting was devoted to the resurrection of Christ, and then we taught on the Exodus from Egypt, and how it ties with what Christ has done for us. We give glory to the Lord for the way He is moving in their lives!

At the moment, we have had to suspend our meetings with the children because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But we are able to help their families with clothing and other aid as we are able. We can hold some home groups during the lockdown when we are not able to meet at the church. This is what we do, and we are very thankful that you participate in this ministry with us. May the Lord reward you abundantly for your kind hearts and bless you in all that you do!
