In 2017, your support enabled Kids for the Kingdom to work in 18 countries and reach 199,977 children with the message of the Gospel. Every day, people ask me “What does Kids for the Kingdom do?” My short answer is, we try to carry out the ‘Great Commission’. The long answer: we provide disaster relief, feeding programs, Bible clubs, clean water projects, job skills training, orphanages, schools, tuition support and more to over 200,000 children around the world.
Our mission is to bring practical aid in one hand, and the life changing message of the Gospel in the other. In 1 Corinthians 13, Paul writes – without love, ‘we are only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.’ We don’t want to simply feed these little children, but give them a future and a hope. Our staff and volunteers strive to be examples of that real love to each of the children they minister to. In every program where we work, the children hear the clear Gospel message – the story of our savior who came to this earth to perform the ultimate act of true love – to be born as a tiny baby in a manger and walk as a man, then die on the cross to save us from our sins.
Each of the little children who hear this message at our Bible clubs comes to understand that Jesus is a real, tangible person who experienced life just as they do. It allows them to relate to him and to experience the love of God firsthand in their lives. Thank you for your Love and support for these little ones who desperately need practical help as well as the message of the Gospel of Salvation message of Christ. Thank you for your gifts, prayers, and support in 2017. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
