Kids ministry may often be over looked and under appreciated, but it should never be viewed as unimportant. In just the 2 1/2 months that I have been here in Brazil, I have seen amazing changes in the kids at the orphanage.
You may not know this, but I really love kids, especially those that don’t have strong family surroundings. In the short time of our going to the orphanage and loving the kids, we have seen healings, attitude changes, salvations, dedications, freedom, and respect grow within them.
Some of these 20 kids have harsh drug stories, family abuses and custody battles in their past. Within the small amount of time here, God has done amazing things in them and it is inspiring! Everytime we arrive we hear them shouting our names and we are immersed in hugs the second we enter.
Time spent loving on someone is never mismanaged time. A child knows when you truly love them, they know when you are investing into them. Teaching these amazing kids English, life skills, and the Word of God has been so rewarding and we are looking forward to being able to keep investing into their precious lives!
Your support has brought the Gospel to these kids. Your prayers for me have ministered to them. That is the amazing thing about partnership. It never stops where you think it might. Your support sets the smallest ripple across the water, and you may never see the result of that ripple, but it will touch someone, somewhere, at any time. Thank you for blessing these kids by blessing me! They have touched my heart so deeply and I firmly believe that they are destined for greatness!
