Clowns, Mimes, puppets OH MY

Thank you for praying! Thank you for petitioning the Lord, interceding on behalf of Pastor Ed, Koinonia Oasis Ministries.  Thank you for praying on behalf of the kids of Belize.

Amy and I got to participate in Children’s Ministry training this weekend.  Here are the stats:

  • 3 countries represented: Mexico, Belize, El Salvador
  • 63 churches
  • 160 participants
  • Over 7000 kids represented

It was a HUGE blessing to be part of a group of people willing to do whatever it takes, to PROUDLY act like a FOOL for GOD, to draw children to Jesus.

We were not without attack from the Enemy.  Spiritual Warfare was alive and well.

  • Pastor Ed’s wife, Dyna, and son Jonathan were very ill the whole weekend
  • One of Pastor Ed’s teachers was ill was well.
  • Pastor Ed himself was sick
  • The only means of transportation, Pastor Ed’s van, was down for the whole training

Yes Satan and his demons were on the move against what the Lord was doing with these FOOLS FOR CHRIST.  But the thing about God is that Our God is Great, Our God is Stronger and He prevailed.  He has the victory and He had the Victory this past weekend!

Saturday and Sunday was filled with instruction, practices, really a practicum of sorts.  During the last session on Sunday afternoon, we all dressed as either a mime or clown or had our puppets and marched through the streets of a village to the local park.  It was something out of a movie as you saw clowns and mimes coming from each direction through the streets, descending on the basketball court in the center of the park.

Then we sang songs, danced dances, did skits, did tricks, and shared Jesus with about 50 kids plus parents.

At the end of the time we offered an invitation and 6 kids from the village, 6 kids who peeped out of their windows to see people acting like fools for God, 6 curious kids, prayed to receive CHRIST!! God is so good!

Thank you for praying!  Thank you for being part of those children meeting the Lord!  Thank you for loving us!  Here are some pictures from the weekend!
