Easter Sunday morning at Planet Kids we experienced an unusual visitation of God’s presence that I did not fully realize at the moment.
Our warehouse full of hyper children always feels like holy chaos. It is seldom if ever tranquil. The kids range from four to seventeen years of age. The youngest children of four to six years of age were sent upstairs to their classroom. They tend to be too hyper to sit through a message.
I gave an illustrated message for the rest of the kids while seated at tables for a meal provided by BGMC. Debbie prepared sausage, scrambled eggs, re-fried beans, bread, and a large mango. Then I preached to the kids a message about the meaning of the Lord’s Supper. I emphasized that the presence of God is holy - not the bread and juice. It is to remember the suffering and death of Christ as well as looking forward to His return. As I spoke about the need to examine our hearts, a holy calm descended over teens and children. I gave an invitation to receive Christ and many wept in the presence of God.
One of the kids is Angel who is about ten years of age and the son to our co-directors. Angel has an attention deficit disorder. Somehow, on Sunday he paid attention and responded to the voice of God. Angel wept as he received Christ and continued weeping until he got home. There he told his mother, “Mommy, it feels like I was born new.”
Then, last Tuesday during a worker’s meeting, the teacher for the youngest kids told us how her class suddenly quit playing and gathered at the window to watch and listen to my message. I thought the message would be too complicated and too long for those children. However, God spoke to their hearts while they watched through a window in an upstairs room. One of the six-year-old kids told Alexa his teacher, “I saw something like this on TV one time. Will you pray for me to receive Jesus?”
Thank you all those who pray for our work in Guatemala and those who were praying at that very moment. Pastor Karen Wix paused their Easter service in Madisonville that day to pray for our children in Guatemala. It made a difference.
The prayer support we receive provides power to reach the deepest parts of a child’s heart.
Incoming teams Teams are scheduled from Kentucky, Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Alabama, and California for school evangelism outreaches and medical clinics.
Project Protect Me Proyecto ProtejeMe has been launched. In 2019 we plan to distribute thousands of pieces of literature to children along with training events to protect kids from human trafficking.
Back Pack Christmas We hope to provide backpacks filled with food supplies and Christmas gifts for more than 1000 kids for Christmas.
Drive-by Outreach A drive to Sololá will offer a chance to impact hundreds of children waiting on the side of the road as they hope for a piece of Christmas candy. We hope to offer not only candy, but gospel literature and a blanket warm them in their mountain home.
None of these ministries are possible without the support and prayers from faithful ministry partners.
