|Since 2005, children have been supporting the Lutheran Women’s Missionary Society (LWMS) kids c.a.r.e. (care about reaching everyone with the gospel) program. Children learn about a mission, pray for the mission, and bring their offerings to meet its needs.Through kids c.a.r.e. children learn that they, too, have an important role in sharing the good news about Jesus.
It is our prayer that the projects will instill in our children a mission-mindedness for life.We pray they will grow up sharing the Word with friends and neighbors, give generously to mission work around the country and the world, and even consider becoming full-time servants of the Word as staff ministers, pastors, and teachers. Will you partner with us in this endeavor?
Through previous kids c.a.r.e. projects, children have supported mission work in places such as Mexico, Russia, Malawi, and many home missions. God has done amazing thingsfor eleven years through our children’s prayers and offerings totaling $608,028.62.Thanks be to God!
The new project for 2017-2018 is called “Feeding Jesus’ Lambs in Nepal”.The country of Nepal is the poorest country in Asia. More than half of the children are malnourished. Christians are a tiny minority in the country and often experience persecution.Nepal has been called one of the least Christian countries in the world—only one percent Christian.
Yet,the Lord is spreading his Word. We want to help the Christian children in Nepal to learn about Jesus through the Feeding Jesus’ Lambs Sunday school ministry. The children will be provided with food for the body and for the soul.
Offerings received for kids c.a.r.e. between June 2017 and May 2018 will provide Christian literature for the Sunday school, food for snacks, teaching supplies such as white boards and crayons, and workshops for the Nepalese teachers.
To encourage and assist Lutheran elementary schools, early childhood centers, and other Christian ministry programs to adopt this mission project, we have developed five days of lesson plans and activities at two levels of instruction. Our writers, who are WELS teachers, adapted and expanded lessons based on the Christ-Light curriculum, so this project can be easily integrated with lessons already being taught during the year.
Please consider using this program to train the children in your care to care about reaching everyone with the gospel of our Lord. Thank you for your prayers and any way you choose to support the kids c.a.r.e. project.
