“Guide me in your Truth. Teach me. You are my God,my Savior. I put my Hope in You all day long.”
Psalm 25:5 NirV
Kidz Konnect 4 Jesus is about MAKING DISCIPLES by educating, equipping and empowering in every aspect of this ministry. “HOPE” is our theme for the 2014/2015 school year along with Psalm 25:5.
Our education ministry has been expanded with the addition of “KONNECT 56”, a special emphasis program on Std 5 & 6 that will also have afterschool community sessions. Our prayer is that deeper growth will take place through these smaller group settings.
Much time and effort has gone into acquiring, organizing and delivering much needed school supplies to our teachers. Thank you ALL who make this happen! They were ecstatic with the Bibles, paper, chalk, markers, crayons, glue, composition books, Billy Graham program, etc. It is tempting to forget in light of the materials absent, the presence of the gospel, prayer and bible teaching in our schools far exceeds any materials. Pray we are wise and provide to needs not wants. We want to guard against negating the truth that Jesus is enough, by “helping” where there is no need. This is a spiritual battle, please pray!
“Legacy” and “The Village”…
Last year, God answered many prayers and has blessed His ministry in Belize with not one, but two amazing properties to allow fulfillment of many amazing new ministry opportunities in Belize!
Camp “LEGACY” (Psalm 78:6 …so another generation shall know) is a amazing 19 acre river front property that Kidz Konnect 4 Jesus has been blessed with to meet many of our growing ministry needs. We have been able to host many teams, marriage conferences and future teacher trainings. We are now beginning a new phase of adding family style “cabanas” that will provide a peaceful, simple environment for families and marriages to flourish under biblical training. Pray, pray, pray for funding, workmen, and wisdom as these projects begin.
The “VILLAGE” is a group of government homes that have been abandoned for many, many years. These facilities will be rehabilitated and up fitted into a Christian community with a special emphasis for single women, moms and families that have been displaced. The first two homes have been completed and work is started on #3.
Family Impact Trips Making a Difference!!!
When families come and serve together, an amazing “konnection” is made…not only with their new Belizean friends, but also as a family and most importantly….with God. Families came to Belize on ten different journeys during 2014! The IMPACT being made is being physically seen through Baptism’s, God honoring weddings (instead of common law) and disciples growing and multiplying!
PRAY about your involvement in ministry here. We are planning to engage “Partners in Trade” training, the first will be a teacher training group prayerfully Feb 14-21, 2015. These US “experts” will come and come back! Areas of expertise we have identified in those who have come in team settings are:
Pastors and church leadership, carpenters, electricians, farmers, teachers, seamstresses and cooks.
We desire a 2 year commitment to come and teach/train/disciple 2-4 times a year. A primary partner will “own” planning and coordinating then offer to any other stateside partners to join. We will provide konnections here to help ensure relevance. The body of Christ coming together to show commitment with continuity is in itself a testimony to His great love. Another means to the end, the gospel.
