Biblical Lessons for Life
True Path Ministry and faithful volunteers from the Iglesia Getsemani church in Galeana, NL, Mexico, teach Christian life lessons in the Marcos 10:14 Kids Club every Thursday. Over forty kids were part of the activities this past week. Prayer, Christian songs, fun games, a Bible lesson, related craft projects and food are part of the experience. It is the only program of its kind in the area.
Kids who have been coming for a while build their confidence, develop likeminded friendships, have internalized Bible verses, and have learned what it means to follow Jesus. The program equips the children with a stronger faith.
The children who come generally range in age from toddler to preteen. They have formed a community that is sharing life with each other. Every three months, birthdays are celebrated with cake and a special song. For some kids, this is the only birthday celebration they have.
The craft is one part of the club they find joyful. In a resource limited area, making a Bible related craft can be a unique experience for many of these kids. Each part of club is designed to reflect the love of Jesus.
“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father. Matthew 5:14-16 (NLT)
