We’ve been praying for this day since October and we’re overjoyed God has answered in such a big way. For 6 weeks The Story of Jesus booklet will be used in our 27 centers in India. The Story of Jesus is a small (16 or 24 page) comic book style tool in vivid color developed by the David C Cook publishers that reveals how Jesus was born, what miracles He did and why He came to earth. The stories all come from The Action Bible. On the last page it asks if you would like have your sins forgiven and become a follower of Jesus. Our local heroes translated the story into the Tamil language and now 6,000 booklets will be distributed throughout April and May.
There are two parts to this ministry emphasize. One is to re-tell the story of Christ to the thousands of children in our Learning Centers and give them an opportunity to seriously think about following Jesus and committing their lives to Him.
The second part will follow a week later when we invite all our children in the Learning Center to take The Story of Jesus booklet and give it to one of their friends. This is a totally new concept for these Indian children. Our staff are excited to see if these children will catch the missionary concept of sharing their faith with a friend.
We ask for you to pray for these children in both elementary and high school as they do this. Some will be excited to share, but others may be timid and scared. Your prayers will give them confidence.
