Pray for Awana clubs in Vietnam
Ruth shares a heart touching story about Awana
My name is Ruth Nguyen. I am Vietnamese. I have been married for 11 years, and God has blessed us with three wonderful children, Esther (10); Samuel (6); and Yana (2). We are studying in International Graduate School of Leadership in Manila. This is a great opportunity for me to attend in the Seed Planters Training.
I have learned much from the program lessons. Because I have small child so I asked me lady to care for her when I attend the class. The time I supposed to go but she didn’t come and I almost gave up. Finally, I decided to go to the conference. The first lesson is the importance of children ministry. Pastor Anat talked about the attitude we have with the children, ‘we see them as a bother.’ It was really touching my heart, look at my daughter I cried and it became a valuable lesson that I had learned. Knowing that the children will grow up and the Lord will use them but I didn’t think that now the girl is ten years old, and only 8 years later she will become 18 years old.
Time is flying when we think past 8 years if they have learned about God, they will do the great thing. I am so excited with the game square, and it’s very helpful not only for children but also for the youth. We have around 50 children in my school, and I want to practice, help them about God’s word.
Please pray that as I go back to my country in Vietnam in next April. I will be able to find those who interested with children ministry. I will train them and start the club soon. Pray that God will move in people’s hearts and give them the vision of reaching these precious children for His kingdom.
