"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 for KidZ at Heart in El Salvador! Nearly 60 participants finished all eight modules and received their KidZ Ministry Teacher Certificate. And another 12 completed KidZ Training of Trainers and are now licensed to share the certificate program with others. Quite a celebration! Gordon & Becki West (along with KidZ leaders from the U.S. and El Salvador) met with the president and board of the Evangelical University to sign an agreement to continue training at the university and establish cooperative programs to reach the children of El Salvador for Jesus. They were also able to meet with the national directors and representatives of World Vision, Compassion, Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), Viva Network, and Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA). God is opening many doors for training in El Salvador. Please prayer for wisdom and continued guidance.
- The KidZ at Heart Romania team is currently bringing training to the towns of Iasi, Suceava, and Galati.

In the United States
- According to Chris and Monique of White Mountain Bible Church in Show Low, AZ, KidZ at Heart’s KidZ Ministry Team Training is a very worthwhile way to spend a Saturday! Gordon and Becki West, co-founders of KidZ at Heart, spent the day in October training and investing in the lives of children’s ministry leaders and volunteers in the area, investigating what is the measure for a “great” child, practical ways to love a child to influence their behavior and fascinating ways to involve kids in Bible stories.
- Waiting is the hardest part of following God, but Idanerys found that waiting is also the best! A few short years ago, Corazón de Niño began to bring KidZ at Heart’s children’s ministry training to Spanish-speaking Americans. Health concerns in her family caused her to take some time away from Corazón de Niño. So after a few years of waiting, God’s timing is now for her to return! She and Sandra Gener will be presenting Corazón de Niño’s one-day training in the Tampa, FL, area in February, 2018.
KidZ at Heart Leadership Community
- Please join us in praying for several individuals considering joining the KidZ at Heart Leadership Community as staff members. Each person would bring a unique set of gifts to further the ministry. Together, we seek God’s leading.
