Another incredible week of Impact Clubs! Thank you for all your prayers over this week. We're in this together! This weekend, please be praying for our upcoming week of clubs--this will be our first strategic outreach into the Indian Orchard area near our new building and every family we connect with will likely be brand new to Hope for Kids. God has so much in store for our team and our ministry and we can't wait to see what He will do next week!
Check out this week's photo galleries and daily recaps below.
We had an amazing time reconnecting with a lot of kids we know at this location and meeting some new families. Our team did a great job leading this club despite many distractions and a couple technical difficulties and we are so proud of them! One little girl gave her life to Jesus and all the kids who attended heard about how much God loves them.
Fourteen kids came to hang out with us during club and even more showed up to play basketball and jump rope! This location is another place we have been for several years and yesterday we got to talk to a few parents we've met over the years. These clubs are one of the best ways for Hope for Kids to build credibility with the families as we show up right in their community and show God's love to their children!
Your prayers were answered and there were a lot fewer distractions at this club--although at one point in our club there were firecrackers being set off on one side of the neighborhood and a metal trashcan being hit with a hammer on the other side! 😂We're working with a lot of younger kids at these clubs and their attention spans tend to be a lot shorter, but we serve an awesome God who can work out all the details for the truth of His Word to sink into their little hearts!
Our Day Three club was quite chaotic, but amongst all the distractions, we are praising God for two salvations yesterday, and many more children who heard the Gospel!
So many children came out to our club on Day Four--there were about 30 children and parents listening during the Bible lesson and Gospel presentation! God answered our prayers, removing a few of the distractions and drawing so many kids to hear about Him. Our friendships with these sweet kids are continuing to grow and we are so thankful for all God has done.
The final day of Week Two was awesome! This week was definitely a little tougher than the first week for a lot of different reasons, but God is working in this neighborhood. We met so many new kids who can't wait to get connected to Hope for Kids through our weekly church service and our school year programs!
