L.I.T. Changed Our Family-September Newsletter 2017

L.I.T. Changed Our Family by Holly Elkins 

I've been a Christian for many years and have done many Bible studies, but no study has been as life-changing as the L.I.T. curriculum! I learned more in teaching the first year L.I.T. curriculum than I had most of my life. L.I.T. taughtElkins Family me who I am in Christ, how to know Him intimately, how to fight spiritual warfare, and how to live my life for Him in surrender.

As I studied and taught, God began to show me truths I had never been taught before. Nobody had ever discipled me after I'd initially prayed to ask Jesus in my heart. No one told me, "Hold on, it's going to be a bumpy ride because now you have an adversary that wants to kill, steal, and destroy you." But this curriculum did. I realized I'd been listening to Satan spew lies at me and tricking me into thinking it was God condemning me all of my Christian life. I lived in that condemnation. I truly believe this is how most Christians live. How sad is that? It's impossible to fight and live victoriously if you don't know there's a war waged against you and you have weapons to fight with.

L.I.T. taught me I'm made righteous by the blood of Jesus through Scripture reading and memorization. I began to see the world differently and began to fall deeply and madly in love with Jesus. My worldview completely flipped upside down as I began to see Truth and Life in the Word of God Most High and that His will for my life is to love Him and love others. It's truly that simple.

"God Moved in Many Ways" August 2017 Newsletter

“God Moved in Many Ways”DSC 5349

This past summer, we saw the Lord move in so many different ways. It can only be described as amazing! There were numerous prayers answered, and the Lord moved in and through the lives of the L.I.T.s on the mission trips. Marc Faulkenbery shared that there were so many distractions going on at their site in Cedar Hill, Texas; however, it was still amazing to watch the kids turn to prayer. One day, a flock of birds landed near where they were having Bible study. They were so loud that the kids could not hear the Bible study. Marc explained, “I saw Cassidy walk over towards the tree where the birds were. She bowed her head to pray, and immediately the birds were silent. It was amazing to watch!” One day during the trip, an adult leader came to me (Clint) in tears and confessed, “You were right. I have been a helicopter leader. I have been overprotective of the children in my church, but God has proven me otherwise. I have restricted them from being used by God.”

We had a great trip to Oklahoma last month. There were five churches with a total of 101 involved in the mission trip. The stories and testimonies were a blessing to hear, knowing that lives were changed, both in the L.I.T.s and in those to whom they ministered.

The testimonies from the L.I.T.s made it clear that God was moving in our midst:

L.I.T. Ministries Newsletter - June 2017

A Lifetime Member’s Perspective of L.I.T.
image01We recently completed a training event at Iron City Baptist Church in Anniston, Alabama. One of the church members who attended was a lifetime member. Joyce shared her heart about what she heard and received from the training: “I have been in this church for seventy plus years. I have been a part of children’s ministry for about 35 years. We have had many programs come and go. I have taught Son Beams to preschoolers, GAs, Bible Drill—all kinds of programs, but I have never seen a better-implemented program than this one (L.I.T.). It teaches us more how to teach our children. I have been overwhelmed with how awesome this can be for our church. I understand that it is a concept that will be hard for most people to accept. But I think that if we can teach our children in the right way and lead them to Christ and show them how to minister and share their faith, this can be one of greatest programs this church has ever seen. I encourage every parent to be a part of this. I can’t stress enough how important it will be.”
