November is a time of seasonal changes in the mountains of northern Mexico, but “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever,” Hebrews 13:8. True Path Ministry and Iglesia Getsemani church sponsor the Marcos 10:14 Kids Club in Galeana, NL, Mexico. We are going through life together, teaching the Christian faith to 40-50 kids each week. The children have learned Christian songs, Bible verses, how to pray, how to love each other and to be more like Jesus in our daily walk. They have been fed both physically and spiritually in a safe, Christ centered environment.
What do we teach? Here are examples of lessons from November. Club kids learned about God’s promise after the flood: “And God said, ‘This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth,’” Genesis 9:12-13.
In another study through the Old Testament story of the tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-9) the kid’s learned to include God in all our plans. Their memory verse for this lesson was: “The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever,” 1 John 2:17.
Another teaching was about Nazareth, the home of Jesus and His early life. Craft time is always fun for them and with this lesson they made a scroll with Luke 2:40 written on it. “And the child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom. And the favor of God was upon him.”
In addition to spiritual nourishment, faithful club volunteers prepare a light meal each week. Galeana, NL, Mexico is an economically poor area. For some of these kids it maybe the best meal they get all week. We do this because of Jesus’ love for us, He gets the glory.
Thank you, prayer and financial supporters, as you too are part of the ministry our Lord has given us in Mexico! Lives are being shaped and changed because of your faithful giving!
