Awana clubs lost their meeting place
In September 2009 we started for 5 year of AWANA clubs and as it happens usually with God’s ministry, it went through many hindrances also in this year. At the beginning it looked very well. We started clubs outside in the town and many children joined us. But when it got colder we needed to move into the place where we worship. It was the place where we have been having an AWANA clubs for five years.
Recently the person who was renting the room to us has put there some new furniture – tables and computers. Since that, the room became no more suitable for an AWANA clubs – it was smaller and not as safe and if something would break, we could not pay for it. We were looking for a new place. We looked for a gymnasium, but we could not find any. We did not have AWANA clubs for 5 weeks!!!
We started to fight in prayers for it. We prayed with kids in small groups as well as with a whole congregation. In a following days we got an idea to ask a friend of ours, who became a headmaster of one primary school in Giraltovce.
We asked him for a help and we were surprised by his willingness to act. He offered us a school entrance hall for a games and one of the classes for teaching in small groups and for a time together at the end. He said to us that he noticed our ministry prior and that he is sure that it is necessary to give more time to children and that this work need to be supported. He is doing that very cheerfully and he does not ask money for it!!!
It is a great answer to our prayers and we are so thankful to God for it. This experience was a great encouragement for us, because we see, that God is very serious about our AWANA clubs, even more serious than we are!
