Sounds Crazy?
What a Privilege we have!

Imagine if your employer required you to raise all the money for your salary and expenses for the privilege of doing your job. Sounds crazy? That is my life, I have such a job!

As a Christian missionary with Children’s Ministries International for the past 38 years, I take the command of Jesus to “Go” (Matthew 28:19) very seriously.

children

“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”  2 Timothy 3:16-17 (ESV)

The most loving thing we can do for children is to teach them the Truth (1 Corinthians 13:6). To do that, Christian parents and children’s ministry leaders in the church must know the Truth for themselves (John 17:17), speak the Truth in love (Ephesians 4:15), and faithfully live-out the Truth everyday (1 John 5:1-5)...
