Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

- Matthew 19:14

Lampang Outreach Report

From the 17th to the 20th of August, 2010, the Good News Team conducted a children’s outreach at 11 schools throughout the Ngao district area within the Lampang province, which is approximately 680 kilometres from Bangkok. We were able to share the story of Christ’s love with around 1,600 children. Our activities are as followed: an interactive song ‘Jesus loves all of us’, presenting to them the life of Jesus Christ, and our very own Muppet rendition of the “Prodigal Son”. We were also able to pray for the staff and students in each school at the end of the day.

We saw that the Holy Spirit was really working the hearts of these young students, especially during our “Prodigal Son” display where many students were brought to tears, for they were deeply impacted by God’s love and His forgiveness. Teachers were also in attendance throughout our presentation, and some even participated along with our activities. We received massive encouragement from the teachers throughout each of the school which we have visited – they thanked us for introducing “good teachings” to the kids within their school to use as a good moral guideline.

Toward the end of our presentation in the schools, we had the opportunity to speak to some of the students and we all felt that the long travel in bringing the gospel to this part of the country was well worth it, because God has poured out His love into the children and we were extremely glad to see that He’s been able to use us in introducing His great love to the communities.

Two weeks following the outreach, we received over 300 requests for enrolment in our correspondence course – and these were from the school which we have visited. This is where the real work begins as we teach and develop for our students a good foundation in the word of God.

Please continue to pray for them!
