One Child at a Time
Lives are changing because of faithful partners
When I look into the eyes of a child, I see a heart that will turn one way or the other very soon.
From the ages of 4 to 14, kids are wide open to Jesus. They are willing to reach toward Him and respond to His love.
I am determined that every child—from Asia to Africa, from North America to Australia and beyond—will have the opportunity to choose Jesus. That’s the heart of Awana International . . . and God willing, we will do whatever it takes!
In this month’s issue of Around the World, you will have the opportunity to read letters and stories from Awana clubbers in the Pacific Rim, Latin America, Europe and more. I hope you will not only take the time to read their words, but that you will also picture their faces and imagine their voices.
These are the boys and girls that you are introducing to our Savior. These are the children you are teaching to know, love and serve Him. These are the lives that you are changing through your partnership with Awana International.
I’m delighted to report that friends like you helped meet the recent $100,000 matching gift challenge for children in Africa! As a result, churches anticipate more than 33,000 kids will attend newly-formed clubs! Also, 54 churches have launched Awana clubs in a Zambia refugee camp and are ministering to between 3,200 to 3,700 refugee children. I thank God for His generosity through you!
But this is only the beginning . . . millions of children around the world still need the opportunity to hear the life-saving message of Jesus Christ.We must raise $230,833 this month in order to continue ministry without interruption. Can I count on you to send in your gift today?
As you give, you help to raise up a new generation of disciples all over the world. Through your financial support, you spread theWord of God to the far corners of our globe and impact the lives and hearts of children like no one else can. Together we can change the world . . . one child at a time.
Please search your heart before the Lord and ask Him how He would have you support this ministry. Then send in your most generous gift today. You are making an eternal investment . . . an investment that will reap unimaginable rewards when you gaze upon thousands of smiling faces in heaven.
Sincerely in Christ,
P.S. Please remember to send in your August gift to Awana International. As fall approaches, our expenses are very real and relevant. In order to reach children around the world with the love of Jesus, I need to hear from you today!
