19 Jul July Update from Jana Hoobler
Significant things are happening in children’s ministry. We’re coming to the last of six consecutive weeks of children’s classes, so we know the children pretty well by now. They have brought lots of laughter during the summer! Please pray for the following:
- On Friday, July 20, a team that from our Hong Kong churches will share the gospel with the children. Please pray for a calm atmosphere and that the children will understand and respond to the gospel.
- On Saturday, July 21, we’re having a VBS program for the children and their parents. Pray that the families will attend and will be open to the gospel.
- On Wednesday, July 25, we’ll hand out bags of Christian materials to the families of our students. These materials are being bought with money given by children in the USA toward their VBS offerings. The materials include a book for each child, a Christian book on parenting for the parents, a Christian DVD for the whole family, and some small gifts. Pray that the families will read the materials and see that God can help to meet their family’s needs.
- On Sunday, July 29, we’re having a Children’s Sunday at Living Stone Church. We’ll invite the children from our English classes to perform during the worship service. We’ll also have snacks afterwards so that our regular attenders can interact with the families. Pray that families will come and be drawn into the church family.
