Another L.I.T. Mission Trip is in the books! This was my 30th mission trip, and I can’t wait until next year to expand our reach even further. We had 121 missionaries in attendance and more than 40 professions of faith during the trip. Here are a few testimonies from this summer’s trip:

“Oh my goodness, they can do it! After doing L.I.T. since October and then the nine-week training, we felt our kids were prepared. But seeing the whole program work—working together—it truly is a mighty work of205907491 10227503049020810 6644029998817023159 n the Holy Spirit. I will go home trusting the Lord more to let loose and watch.” —Lou Duncan

“I have enhanced my belief that children are capable of anything. God is limitless and can equip anyone to do anything if they accept God’s will.” —Janet Bergen

“I saw Him giving my girls compassion for others and opening their eyes to see lost people. I saw Him bring out their gifts.” —Emily Mullis

“They are powerful vessels. They have a position and place in ministry, and we as the church need to make room for them.” —DeAnn Noyes

“I saw the joy in the kids full of the Spirit. Even during ‘chores’ they were laughing and enjoying working for the Lord and being filled with the Holy Spirit.” —Tammie Thibodaux

“I saw boldness overcoming fear. I saw kids (L.I.T.s) convicted of sin and fully surrendering to the Lord, committing to change when they come home.” —Nancy Ruth Bailey

L.I.T.s RPicture2aise $1,224 for Zambia During the Mission Trip

During the L.I.T. mission trip, we took up a special offering to purchase books for children in Zambia. The fees to go on the mission trip cover the cost of printing of 1,000 L.I.T. devotional books for children in 52 churches in Zambia. The L.I.T.s and leaders donated $1,224. We raised an additional $251 from the L.I.T. Store during the trip for a total of $1,475 towards our $2,000 goal. Praise the Lord! If you would like to help us reach our $2,000 goal, click here.



Mobile Mission Network, Earl KrumsiekEarl

Every Tuesday and Thursday for the past two months, you’d find several kids on our front porch, learning about the Bible and Jesus. We launched a discipleship program called “Leaders In Training” (L.I.T. for short). We currently have 7-10 young people from the ages of 5-12 enrolled in our L.I.T.

Our goal is to create a missionary culture and train the next generation to become missionary servants sent to our neighborhood, our community, and our city to make disciples that make disciples. Now we are gearing up for our “summer program” which will be on Thursdays, 2pm-4pm and a “week of camp” this summer. —Earl Krumsiek, Mobile Mission Network, Sapulpa, Oklahoma
