Learning to Live by Faith

True Path Ministry and volunteers from the the Iglesia Getsemani church in Galeana, NL, Mexico welcomed forty children to the Marco 10:14 Kids Club on Thursday. Each week they meet as a community of Christ followers in a special area made just for them. They unit in a time of Christian prayer, games, songs, a Bible lesson, a craft project and a meal.

Most of kids who come have been attending for many months. Some of them come from difficult home situations. We have seen real growth in the faith of the children who come every week. The adult volunteers and teacher Ana encourage them to live out their beliefs in their daily lives. This last Thursday there was an especially intense time of prayer.

“We prayed for the children of Galeana and this club. Some of the children were concerned because they had seen their mothers crying. There are drugs and many distractions in the world. God touched the children to give these problems over to Him,” said teacher Ana (as translated). “I give Him the glory as He shows us His love.”

The children share all aspects of life at club. They enjoy laughing during the fun games and lifting up praises in songs. They also welcome new kids who are just discovering club. Thank you, prayer and financial givers for your faithful support. Through your gifts you are advancing the Gospel to a new generation of believers. All glory belongs to God.

This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.” Romans 1:17 (NLT)

“Day of the Child” Celebrated at Kids Club

Mexico recognizes “the Day of the Child” in addition to Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. It is a special time to honor children and it was celebrated with a fiesta at the weekly Marcos 10:14 Kids Club on May 4th. Over 50 kids, 20 adults and many volunteers were on hand at the club meeting area beside the Iglesia Getsemani church for the event. It was a fun time of prayer, songs, games, a Bible lesson, a puzzle to decode, a piñata to break, a small gift, plus a meal with cake and a drink.

True Path Ministry and faithful volunteers from the Iglesia Getsemani church in Galeana, NL, Mexico team up to welcome all children from the area who choose to attend each week. Many of the kids come for every meeting to learn more about following Christ in their daily lives. They recite Bibles verses, sing Christian songs and form strong bonds with each other and the leaders. Teacher Ana uses a lesson plan that includes important stories about the faith and integrates related crafts and activities.

Each of the meetings are designed to give the children a time to unite in their faith in God. “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God, Mark 10:14 (ESV).
