In our Sunrise (HIV/AIDS ministry) program, we have a family, with nine children, that live in a very bad rented house. Seven of the nine children live in the house with the parents, who are both infected by HIV/AIDS.  Because of the disease the parents are not able to “parent” and are not effective in their normal lives.

When I shared with our supporters about the needs of this family, the Lord provided funds to buy bunk beds, blankets, sheep, a kerosene lamp more food for them. The funds were donated and raised by three children who felt (in their hearts) that the Lord was leading them to do that ministry with us.

This ministry of compassion by three Sunday school children has taught us that we consistently need to be sharing our ministry needs, both financial and prayer needs, with the children in our Sunday schools. We, as adults, should share these ministry concerns with our children, and not wait until they are adults, because the Lord may choose to work through them.  Because of this compassionate ministry, by children for children, we have seen Sunrise Kids coming to Jesus Christ.

In fact, I am the one who officiated his mom’s funeral because she was our church member. He has one brother who is also living with him. He has some mental challenges which we are yet to know from a doctor. (more…)
