Every single place that we went (Bangalore, Vijayawada and Chennai), as we saw the condition there, the people in the streets, God was speaking to me and tearing my heart with HIS love. Everywhere you go, you just sense that the people need God. I felt such a strong compassion for GOD’s love to flow in their lives. They need Jesus. Who would go?
I would love to share one of the experiences I had and will never forget. It was when we were visiting the Champion Kids School at Vijayawada. As we travelled in the car, we prayed together and began to speak blessings for every child. I was so excited to see them. When we arrived, I didn’t know around 50 children were already there waiting for us. The moment I saw them, my heart was just full of joy unspeakable. As Ps Karen started to introduce the team, I was trying to hold back my tears back because it was so overwhelming to finally meet them. When I looked in their eyes, Holy Spirit was like showing me how each of them individually are so precious, special and beautiful little children of the most high God. I began to cry. The cry was a cry of joy from heaven and full of thanksgiving. I just could not hold back the tear as I couldn’t take it anymore. Words cannot describe it when you meet the children there. Some of them might have no mum, dad or parents, or maybe their parents do not have the means to care for them. As I reflected on my own life, I felt so blessed and grateful to have a family that loves and takes good care of me, and even more since Jesus has came to my life! I felt the Holy Spirit awakening me to arise to go out and tell of HIS grace and love that is available to all of us.
As Sarah and I taught them songs of worship and empowered them with God’s word, I was saying to myself I am actually the one here learning so many things from the little children at Champion Kids. I learned to have the faith like a child, to not worry, have a genuine heart, purity in love, and a heart that is always grateful. It is amazing and that is what God honors and is looking for. I felt such a strong presence of God’s love during the time we spent with the Champion Kids. Time went so fast and I’m praying that I would be able to go back and meet them again!
Also, in Chennai when we attended the International Childrens’ Intercession Conference (ICIC), wow! I was amazed to see the children come and gather as one powerfully praying for one another, families and nations. This is the way it must be, GOD can use anyone especially the little children.
I believe it is God’s heart as it says in Malachi 4:6 “turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of their children to their hearts.” Thank You so much Father for the mission trip, YOU are the only hope for humanity, Jesus is the hope of the world! Let’s keep on shining for HIS glory!
