What are leaders saying about the impact of the L.I.T. Mission 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 workDSC 7982 of 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

"I saw fear and walls breaking down among our kids and them opening up to allow the Holy Spirit to lead them and work through them. I am deeply thankful for the truths I have learned and witnessed first-hand of the full power of the Holy Spirit at work in the lives of every believer, no matter their age.” Jamie Brown, Springfield, Missouri

“One of the biggest lies the enemy has told the church is that children can’t be active participants in their faith journey. This has led to spiritually immature adults. Kids who actively engage in spiritual practices become adults who are actively engaged!” Brandi Melvin, Southgate

“The children are capable of preaching the Gospel. We need to stop thinking that we need to keep our kids in a bubble and start letting them go out and teach God’s Word to all.” Chelsey Freeman

“I loved seeing our kids speak God’s Word and point others to Him. They were able to keep their attention with worship and crafts and games.” Mike Groeneveld, Spiro FBC

“Even children who you wouldn’t think could, can/do share and get excited to share their faith.” Jennifer Roberts, Memorial

“I have seen my group grow so much this week. God has moved through these kids so much on this mission trip. The kids on this mission trip have shared the Gospel better than most adults that I have seen.” Landon Harper, Willow Park Church
