God is so good. There has been a dramatic change in the behavior of the students since we started the club. The Word of God can change lives and some of the children were moved to ask forgiveness for their behavior.
A student from South Africa who was enrolled in the Romans Road for Children course wrote: “I cannot thank God enough for His amazing grace! We have a weekly Good News Club® in our garage and the average attendance for the past year has been about 30 children…40 children believed in Jesus as their Savior. I am grateful to God for the opportunity to learn the Romans Road Tool and the power of God’s Word to transform lives.”
Many Christians know the old hymn “Bringing in the Sheaves.” At Good News Club® a little girl insisted that the title was “Bringing in the Sheep.” And why not? Aren’t we the sheep of His pasture, working to bring little lambs to the Savior?
Knowing how children (and teachers!) enjoy the lazy days of summer, I was surprised when the mother of one of our students approached me in the grocery store. She told me with tears in her eyes how much her daughter loved and missed the Good News Club® and couldn’t wait until it started again!
It was a hot, humid July day. We came rolling into our 5-Day Club® location, blasting fun kids music. We were a spot of sunshine in a very dark place—dark in more ways than one. Our club was in an inner city housing project in Connecticut, one with cracked cement and trash in many places where we walked.
We see many plans, programs, dreams, and goals already set and expect to reach more children, train more teachers, open more doors, translate more materials, and much more. But most important, we seek to love the Lord more, worship Him more, know Him more and serve Him until He returns!
