These are exciting days! We wanted to share with you just another way that your sponsorship makes a difference, for eternal reasons. Your donations go farther than just providing an education, clothes, and food but these kids are meeting the One they have longed for and were made to be in a real relationship with. Your sponsor kids, and kids not even in the BCI sponsorship program, are coming to Christ and accepting Him as their personal Lord and Savior. Hallelujah!
On September 26, 2014, fifteen children at the BCI Academy who are enrolled in Spoken English Grade 2 prayed to ask Jesus to come live inside their hearts forever. It was an absolute gift to see and hear these kiddos clasp their hands to enter into a real relationship with the God of the Universe. This, friends, is why we are here.
But the fun doesn’t stop there! The next week, eleven children in Grade 4 prayed to receive Jesus. After talking to them after they prayed and made the decision of their lifetime, we realized some of the kids were very new to Christianity and may need to be talked with even more. And we are excited to do this! We look forward to speaking with each child and encouraging them in their relationship with Christ.
So, how did all of this happen? The Holy Spirit does His work and I brought a book that I found at Half Price Books called The Prayer that Makes God Smile (ironically written as a free gift by Stormie Omartian). I read this book to these kids as a part of their classroom activity and they responded to the Holy Ghost’s prompting. It was so beautiful to watch happen and get to be a part of.
Thanks for giving so that these kids could hear from Jesus clearly, running to Him and making it!
