Yay for a crazy busy year of sending out mission teams! We continued to see a record number of children respond to the gospel this year. Children have been traumatized by the isolation and uncertainty of the last few years. Life still hasn’t returned to normal for many of them. They are so hungry for love, relationships, and security! When we can give them a week at camp of fun, learning, playing with other kids, and just being normal, they love it… and their hearts are so open to the truth of a God who loves them.
We sent teams to Ecuador, Romania, Zimbabwe, and Thailand this year, plus our first music camp team. We worked with about 1400 children who have received an average of thirty gospel-centered lessons each, making for a total of 42,000 lessons received. And still, there are more opportunities and invitations to work with kids and teens than we can possibly fill!
We are so grateful for all the team members who have had the courage to travel and the donors who have generously supported the ministry this year. You helped make all of those gospel lessons possible! Looking toward next year, our goal is to raise $25,000 between now and the end of the year. This will help us continue sharing the gospel with kids who are so hungry for love and stability right now and allow us to add more teams and new destinations for 2023.
Thank you for your generosity and heart for sharing the gospel with children around the world!
