6 Countries of origin…
1 Goal… to be equipped for children’s ministry!
KidZ At Heart once again had the privilege of equipping the YWAM students from Winterton in KwaZulu-Natal (South Africa) in April 2012. These sixteen students are on their way on a two month outreach in various communities in KwaZulu-Natal and the Free State. Their mission is to reach children for Christ – through interactive Bible lessons, sharing the Gospel and doing practical work.
The KidZ At Heart training was indeed a blessing – as evidenced by the testimonies of the students…
I learned that kids learn in different ways and that helped me a lot because I am kind of trapped in my own perspective on how to do things. I learned how to teach a Bible lesson in an interactive way. It meant so much to learn how to share the Gospel with a child using your fingers. Mat Reutsch, Switzerland
I enjoyed all the activities because it left an impact on me. I learned so much in the area of multiple intelligences and it is amazing that children (and adults) learn in different ways. We are leaving soon on our outreaches and all these tools will be very helpful. I think everyone that works with children should do this training. I also learned that when sharing the Gospel with children to keep it simple and not to use big words! I am definitely better equipped now! Deborah Fakayesi, Nigeria
I once again realized how unique and special we all are because we all learn things differently. The KidZ At Heart training taught me to think outside of the box and to be creative! Anton van Wyk, South Africa
We trust God for much fruit in the lives of the children who will be impacted by these students!
