I was asked to speak to the church women in a nearby community. My topic was Outreach. I shared several opportunities available for women to reach a needy world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The biggest response was to the need for a Good News Club that teaches the Bible for children in their local public elementary school.
I explained that we have nine after school clubs in our local schools, but no clubs in two nearby cities, including theirs. These clubs were approved in 2001 by the U.S. Supreme Court, to be held after school hours in public elementary schools throughout the U.S.
The upshot: Good News Clubs were recently started in two nearby communities! Both are the result of this group of wonderful women answering a need. They took the training and secured permission from their district superintendents. One club already has over 20 students. The other has 47 and will soon split into two clubs! The clubs meet weekly for 1.5 hours from October through May.
Please join me in praying for God’s special anointing on these clubs, and that many children will come to experience the love and joy of the Savior.
