From Jing:

As head teacher, I am very much grateful to God. He has always been our strength and our teacher and knows what is best for this ministry. He is always at work and we want to be sensitive in our response so as to see fruit and growth.

God reveals Himself in simple ways to children and they have grown to understand Him as a good Father that loves them. Parents testify how happy they are with our school. Students learn academics but also about Jesus, the name above all names.  Students are applying what they have learned at school in their homes. They are taking the lead giving thanks before even a simple meal at their house. They remind their parents what God’s Word says during trials. Their parents are proud of them and God is using them mightily! Some students live in an environment that is not Christ centred. One or both parents may not be Christians or may be new in their faith. Parents testify that when their children hear someone cursing or they witness their father drunk, their response now is to pray and repeat what they have learned from their teacher and God’s Word.

January routinely marks an intensive planning month for Kid’s Ministry. Typically we plan the themes and delegate responsibilities for the year. The Christmas programs this year were bursting with more kids than ever before.  Our desire has been to reach out to the kids with fresh resources, better crafts and memorable games. Through the blessings of a church we received brand new donated Bible Teaching for children – BTFK (LIFEWAY). It is complete with pictures, teacher guides, theme posters and learner guides for 8 – 11 year old children.
