“Teacher Kasandra” gave her life to Christ at 25 and has continued to serve God well. Even before she was saved, many children in her community gathered at her home. They were drawn to her tender heart and kindness. When God changed her life, she knew He wanted to use her to touch the lives of children.
As Pastor Samuel Schleif spoke to the young men and women before him, a sense of nostalgia swept over him. Twelve years earlier he first sat in those same seats, listened to God’s Word and prepared for the task ahead of him as a summer missionary with Christian Youth in Action®.
One important element of a Good News Club® is prayer. We strongly encourage our children to go to God in prayer for everything that comes up in life. We teach them there is no request too big or too small for God to answer.
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?
