God Moved in Powerful Ways in OKC-July Newsletter 2017

OKC MT Group Shot 17








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:

Kayden (L.I.T.) said, “I shared Christ with someone today. It is the first time I shared Christ with someone who was older than me. He was 16 years old.” Kayden sat down that day and led this older teenager to Christ. He was ready to respond to the Gospel that day.

2017 07 06 17 15 03We talked about spiritual warfare, distractions and how the enemy will try to get us off track. Tatum (L.I.T.) shared, “It was like a war today at our site. A fight broke out between a couple. We stopped and prayed, and the fight stopped, and everyone’s attention was back on the Bible study.”

2017 07 06 17 15 39

Lydia (L.I.T.) shared, “We had an idea to play a game using beach balls. We prayed to God for beach balls. When we turned the corner, there were several new beach balls fully inflated sitting against the curb.” Sometimes, we are afraid to ask for small things. That doesn’t matter to kids. They know their Heavenly Father will provide.

As a result of the L.I.T.s’ ministry, there were 30 professions of faith on this trip. We had two L.I.T.s who accepted Christ during the trip as well. We are very grateful for Emmaus Baptist Church in Oklahoma City for hosting the trip this year.

Online Training Track

L.I.T. Ministries is excited to introduce our Online Training Track. Many churches and leaders have expressed a desire to attend one of our training events, but distance, cost, or dates seem to always be a factor. Now, they will be able to train in the comfort of their home or office from pretty much any electronic device. The training track will prepare leaders to implement the L.I.T. (Leaders In Training) and Nehemiah Kids ministries in their church or organization.  More Information...
