KidZ at Heart Newsletter

KidZ at Heart Newsletter - April 2018

"And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others." 2 Timothy 2:2 

From Gordon & Becki

One of our favorite events of the year is Vacation Bible School. Churches across the United States are already planning to attract crowds of children to their VBS programs this summer.

So why is it that KidZ at Heart does not put on Vacation Bible Schools around the world?

Share This Training Everywhere You Can

Irene, a teacher in Christian Education, in Ukraine was skeptical of the KidZ at Heart training. But she was pleasantly surprised at the spiritual focus and importance of the teacher’s relationship with Christ as he or she models this relationship to children. She loved the focus on nurturing the teacher's own soul. Irene specifically encouraged the team to keep sharing this training everywhere possible.

The KidZ at Heart team trained in two different locations: Bolgrad and Izmail. They also connected with villages requesting training as well as reconnecting with attendees to previous trainings. "We cannot wait to see what they will do," shares team leader Becky McAllister. Read more.


Train the Trainers

"If I take more classes from you and pass a test, may I take this training to people I know who need it?" Gaby asked while attending training in Mexico. KidZ at Heart quickly answered, "Yes!" You see, those who attend KidZ at Heart training are the ones who best know the people, the area, and the needs. Attendees like Gaby advocate for people who live in more remote areas and don't have access to the annual KidZ at Heart training. KidZ is working on ways to equip in-country leaders like Gaby to share KidZ at Heart training throughout the year! 


A Cure for Worry

by Nancy Tichy, Author for KidZ at Heart International

When we liken modern family life to a very long road trip with everyone in the car together, there’s more to it than allegory. Children today do spend hours in family vehicles engaged in a variety of activities, like eating meals and watching TV, among other things. It’s a long way from rumble seats and Model T’s when kids grew up listening to The Lone Ranger and reading books in favorite hideaways. It’s a far cry from missionary life in the fifties and sixties where travel in an automobile was more likely along gravel roads than tarmac. Where In the tropics, rainy season led to adventures from hardened dirt roads through rusty-red quagmires.Read more.
