What you are seeing here is our November report for our Hope for Children ministry sites. The list on the left side are the villages that we minister in. In November we ministered to 2,144 children. We had 171 new children come with 542 children receiving Jesus Christ for the first time and 104 children receiving the baptism with the Holy Spirit. In the months of October and November we have seen well over 1,000 children receive Christ as their savior. I believe this would qualify as a revival.
One thing that has sparked this move of God has been our missions students. So many of them have caught the vision of God for children's ministry. They have gone back to their villages and started Hope for Children sites. With the leadership of our partner Rural Hope Africa we will continue to expand our capacity to reach children in the most rural areas with the Gospel.
Our 2018 ministry goals for reaching children are as follows. In 2018 we will launch a minimum of 25 new Hope For Children ministry sites with trained leaders. We will launch a special one week training camp for kids from our HFC sites. This will be for children that show a desire to learn to minister to other children. Ultimately we desire to train the children to evangelize and disciple other children. We will do two Children's leader trainings during the year to continue to prepare for the launch of new ministry sites. The goal would be to be ministering to 10,000 children per month by the end of 2018.
As a partner of this ministry you are directly involved in this revival and the accomplishment of our goals. The lives of these children are the fruit that is being deposited in your account in heaven. Thank you. May God enrich you in every way in 2018.
