It’s hard to believe we’ve come to the end of another year of Clubs. And what a year it has been! Not only did we have 51 Clubs throughout the year, our volunteers also conducted dozens of Christmas and Easter parties, along with three outreach events in partnership with the Metropolitan Police Department and My Father’s House Church. We trained more than 50 new missionary volunteers, and joined hands with five more partner churches. Yes . . . . we are growing!
So let’s talk about the kids – more than 2,000 heard the Gospel this year, and of those, 311 made a profession of faith in Christ! For the children attending Good News Club, many of them have gone from knowing almost nothing about the Bible to knowing they are loved and forgiven by the God who created them. Week after week, they were learning truths that will be a strong foundation for them in the days ahead.
In John 9:4, Jesus said He must do the works of the One who sent Him while it is still day; for night is coming when no man can work. We have our work cut out for us. With approximately 240 elementary schools (not to mention middle schools) there is much more to be done; many more children to be reached.
Right now we have the wonderful opportunity of being a beacon of light to children growing up in a dark and chaotic world. We are helping shape future leaders of our society as they learn the absolute truth of God’s unchanging Word. But we can’t do it without you – without your prayers, service, and financial gifts. So now, while it is “still day” thank you for helping us reach more children in Southern Nevada!
