"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.
With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people."
- Praise God! Through generous friends of KidZ at Heart, God raised a challenge fund to match the first $25,000 of gifts through the fall fundraising campaign. Please continue to pray through the month of September for God to lead and raise up a new group of givers through this campaign to train teachers who do the hard, fun, and rewarding work of leading children into a growing and life-changing relationship with the Savior.
- The KidZ at Heart Moldova team returned from training in three locations. Several attended and many new relationships were formed! Continue to pray for this region as a team makes plans to return in following years.
- The KidZ at Heart India & Kenya team is finishing the last minute preparations for their trip September 23 – October 2. Please pray for the team members, for the hosts as they finish getting ready for the training, and for the participants who will attend the training – that they will be ready to hear and apply the information they receive.
- Please pray that God brings a Regional Coordinator to the Eastern European region to work with KidZ at Heart to strategically plan trainings in more than four countries. Pray for someone with commitment to the position and a passion for the work of KidZ at Heart.
- Continue to lift up the KidZ at Heart trips scheduled for 2018 (currently more than seven trips!). Pray for God to prompt the right people to join him and the teams headed to train local children’s ministry leaders in Colombia, Nepal, Tanzania, Uganda, Ukraine, and more!
In the United States
- Please continue to pray for the fall North American training events that are training local children’s ministry leaders and teachers on best practices and tips to reach, teach, and nurture children for Jesus.
KidZ at Heart Leadership Community
- Earlier this month, KidZ at Heart staff directors and the board members gathered together in Arizona to hear exciting things God is doing in and through KidZ and to look ahead to the priorities and goals God has set before KidZ at Heart. Board members also had a wonderful time of discernment about a prospective candidate to join the Board of Directors.
