Kid’s Ministry leaders have been feeling a burden to reach out to the children who live in Pacifico.   Pacifico is a picturesque village blessed with great surf and the surrounding ocean is abundant with fish.

We have done previous VBS and Kid’s ministry in this area. We recently did an outreach there that included Bible teaching, games, food and fun.  The kids were screaming with excitement as we drove up!!  What a welcome!

Derek shared a message about God’s love for them. The majority of these children had already given their hearts to Jesus during our previous VBS or Kids ministry visit.

The kids were listening attentively as Derek pointed a finger at each child and said, “Jesus loves you, and you, and you.” Their faces lit up as they listened to Derek and heard just how loved and special they are to God.

The highlight was when the Hope for the Island leaders and volunteers broke into groups and prayed over each child.  What an emotional time!! The kids’ response was overwhelming and we were reminded to keep them in prayer as they face so many hardships.

It was encouraging to hear the kids are so diligently involved in the local churches. They continue to read their Bible and grow in their faith.  We are already anticipating our next visit to the village of Pacifico. Please pray for these young ones.
