I met 2 of the most incredible people at the Orange Conference - David and Karen Rhodes. They have such an amazing vision to love on kids in Belize in the name of Jesus!
You see Belize is a country made of up of more than 50% children and most aren't able to have the experience that our children here in the United States do. There is no Children's Ministry there.
Well, at least there wasn't before David and Karen heeded the call of God to bring Jesus to these beautiful kids with the ministry of Kidz Konnect 4 Jesus!
Kidz Konnect 4 Jesus has two facets of ministry.
Kidz Change Can Change Kidz provides a ministry opportunity for children’s small groups to have a consistent focus and impact on missions and other kids. The first Sunday of each month kids will bring their change to small group and drop it into a Kidz Konnect 4 Jesus "change can". Each church is partnered with a specific Belizean church or school or both. The change cans permit the allocation of computers, large screens, curriculum, training, and supplies for each ministry and the continued maintenance. Change cans, envelopes and ALL supplies needed to implement this vital ministry are provided.
Family Mission Impact Journeys are mission trips for families. It is our belief that children are called to be on mission. Belize is an English speaking country that is easily traveled to. Families are assigned to specific villages where American and Belizean families develop relationships that will encourage and provide opportunities for them to do life together. Belize has much to offer in the way of relaxation and fun while being affordable. Families will find an ideal balance of ministering, fun, and relaxation.
God is doing amazing things through this ministry!
This is the latest update from KidzKonnect:
We need folks praying for a village called Light of the Valley. One of our preschool kids drowned this morning in the river...God gave me the words and strength to minister to over 270 kids and adults this afternoon. Thank you Lord! We cried, prayed, hugged, and loved, and prayed some more. God proved yet again that He moves in ways that we cannot understand. Amidst all the grieving and pain God showed up and over 20 children received the gift of salvation! Tommy's family does not know Christ. Light of the Valley is partnered with Westwood Baptist in Alabaster, Alabama. Please be in prayer for these children as well. As I walked through the village I couldn't help but think how difficult we make ... See Moremissions and sharing the gospel. What if we ALL come together to not only IMPACT a generation but an ENTIRE Nation...PLEASE join us in this revolution...time is ticking.
So please consider supporting this incredible move of God in Belize! Please commit to praying for this ministry and the children's lives who are being changed every day! You can find out more information at www.kidzkonnect4jesus.org.
Time is ticking...join the revolution!
