Nowhere to Go, Nothing to Do

Nowhere to Go, Nothing to Do

Richard and Michael are pre-teen City kids who live, as many say, in da hood.  They have nowhere to go – and nothing to do.  It’s not because they don’t want to go somewhere or do something.  In fact, every time I talk with them, they hint around — hoping I’ll take them outside the walls of The Hood.

Planting the Seeds for a Great Commission Life

Passion for the Great Commission was planted in my heart at the age of 19. I repented of my sin and trusted in King Jesus when I was ten years old. Unfortunately, I did not grow much in my faith during my teenage years, and few of my friends knew that I was a Christian.

When I was four years old my mom opened our home to a Good News Club®. Though Mom was not saved, she would sit in the club each week and listen as the lesson was taught. One day after club I told my mom I wanted to be saved. My unsaved mom led me to the Lord, repeating what she had heard in club each week. Soon after that Mom was saved too. Today there are about 15 different family members in some form of Christian ministry—pastor, missionary, etc.

When I was only three, I was led to the Lord by my brother who’d been trained in a Teaching Children Effectively courseTM. A couple of years later I started going to 5-Day Club® and Good News Club® then attended Christian Youth in Action® (CYIATM) and began teaching at age 12. After six fruitful years of summer ministry as a student and one as staff, I was excited to be called into the ministry full time and be following God’s path for my life.

I started to attend Good News Club® in Sioux City, Iowa when I was about four years old. My older brother went, and I liked to go along. I so clearly remember our teacher, dear Mrs. Dora Lock and her helper Betty Ritchie. She had GNC® in the basement of her home. I remember the day she had the lesson on the crucifixion like it was yesterday. She talked about how Jesus died to pay the price for our sins and all we had to do was believe on Him and accept His free gift. I was ready to accept him that day! I attended for several years and the Scripture that I memorized and the songs we sang have stuck with me to this day. I am forever grateful for my time spent in GNC and am loving being part of it again.
