God’s Word for Children
By Rick Neufeld
“Man does not live on bread (maize) alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God”
Over the last week I have been living out of my truck traveling north of the Zambezi River teaching seminars to churches about the importance of children and how to reach them for Christ. These seminars are quickly turning into so much more as so few church leaders truly know the scripture that they are supposed to teach the children. Most, if not all, of the Sunday School leaders are working without a Bible or even a single verse of one memorized. As I have seen this my heart is broken and I have been spending most of my time here teaching these young leaders how to memorize God’s word and teach it to others who either do not have a Bible or cannot read. I have also been able to see that each Sunday School program has a Bible in their local language.
In return for this, people who have been so excited have often given what little they had as an offering of thanks. People here are hungry for God’s word and His teaching, and I am so glad to be a part of His work here in Mozambique.
