Prayer Request: Week of March 19th, 2017
Children are the key to growing churches.
In the Philippines, children ages 14 and under make up 35% of the population. Reaching the children of this tropical nation is key for the growth of the Kingdom of God. Today, through Bible League Canada more than 40,000 Filipino children in 600 village schools across remote mountain regions are learning about Jesus. Children who once had little joy, peace or hope in their lives, now have a real purpose. “I consider it a great blessing to me and to my church to be part of this,” says local champion Nelia. “Since I started, our Sunday school class has been growing and it was such an encouragement to my pastor. He has realized that reaching the students at the school is the most effective way to see church growth.” The Holy Spirit has been moving powerfully, with more and more children drawn to the church’s children’s ministry. “And some of their parents are also coming to church. I am enjoying the growth of my church with the young people flocking to my Christian values class,” she says.
Please pray that the training and Bible resources needed to answer this amazing harvest continue to be available!
