April/May 2022 Newsletter
We had our first L.I.T. mission trip in the Kasupe area, Lusaka West Zambia led by Isaac Mphande. There were 69 L.I.T.s (children and students from 5 to 14 years of age) from Kids Connection Preparatory School that were on the trip. The L.I.T.s reached out to children in the Tubalange villages. They were working with more than 180 children in these villages. They took some of their own clothing to share with children in need there. We thank God that 84 kids responded to the Gospel and gave their lives to the Lord. Our kids also gave gifts to the kids in the villages, such as clothes and shoes. We are so proud of these L.I.T.s and that God has chosen such a time as this for them to glorify His name.
2,000+ Pastors and Leaders Trained in India
The Lord has blessed tremendously with the many open doors to train pastors and leaders in India. The picture is from our last training event April 18-19. Please continue to pray that those who have been trained will fully embrace the vision to reach, disciple, and empower children to be missionaries for Christ.
Leadership Training in Pakistan
We had the honor to train about 100 leaders in Pakistan. There were many challenges, from power failure to internet issues. We pray that the pastors and leaders will take what they have learned and become passionate about reaching and discipling children.
Going Deep: Taking Children into the Spiritual Depths with God
Throughout the past 20 years, I have had the privilege of observing a mighty move of God in the lives of children. When I first heard a young man say, “Brother Clint, when I was speaking today, there was something like fire going through me,” I knew right then that it was the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8). At the time, I thought it was so significant that I began videotaping and documenting what I observed. After 30 preteen mission trips and working with children for 30+ years, I am convinced that the Lord is raising up children today to be spiritual giants for Him. I have documented these observances in my new book. We are hoping to release the book this summer.
If You Don’t Go with Us, We Do Not Want to Leave This Place by Clint May
In the last several months, I have found myself excited about all the many doors and opportunities that have opened up for L.I.T. In my excitement, I ran ahead of the Lord. I made plans before the funds were there. I found myself stressed out and wondering how we would cover the cost of all these opportunities. In my foolish pride, I was going to make it happen. Then one day in the Lord’s still small voice, He revealed to me that I was running ahead of Him. I was going, and He was not going with me. I had to put the brakes on and let leaders know that we could not move forward on any training events until the funds were available. I had to confess to them that I acted foolishly by making promises before were ready as a ministry. Since then, the Lord has provided in His timing. We no longer schedule a date unless the money is available.
There are so many opportunities, but we are waiting on the Lord for His provision. Please keep us in your prayers. It is my passion to equip leaders who disciple children and prepare them to become disciple-makers and missionaries of the Gospel.

We are watching and waiting for the Lord to provide. We have many opportunities for ministry in Kenya, Namibia, Botswana, India, and Pakistan. Would you prayerfully consider partnering with us so that we can train leaders in these different locations?
Our next training will be in Kenya. We have the training materials printed; however, we need $3,412 to cover the cost for our training team to travel there and lead the training.
