Your gifts supported a new ministry to the community children called TeamKid.
While developing relationships with the children in the government housing projects close to their church, Jeff Buchholz, Pastor of Cornerstone Christian Fellowship in Kailua-Kona, felt the need to provide a weeknight ministry for the children. Using the Sue Nishikawa Offering funds they received, they began a TeamKid program on Wednesday nights. On a typical Wednesday night 40 to 50 children come to their TeamKid program. Not only do they meet the children’s spiritual needs, they meet their physical needs too. Many of the children come to the club hungry. The church family feeds the children and provides them with slippers, t-shirts, and shorts when needed. Through your gifts to the Sue Nishikawa Offering for Hawaii Pacific Missions, Cornerstone Christian Fellowship has had the opportunity to meet the physical and spiritual needs of many children. During this past year, 16 children have given their lives to Christ. Living so close to the church allows the leaders the opportunity to disciple the children.
The TeamKid program is a weekly program that goes through the Bible with the children. They began with the Biblical creation story and are now sharing the Biblical story of Ruth. Cornerstone Christian Fellowship uses TeamKid each week to share with the children how to live for Jesus and obey Him in their walk. Several of the children are now attending the church services on Sunday.
- Pray that more children will choose to attend TeamKid.
- Pray that the children and their families will be drawn to Christ.
- Pray that the church may be able to meet both spiritual and physical needs of the community around them.
And as you pray and as you give, consider how your church can meet the spiritual and physical needs of children in your community. If you are starting a new ministry to reach people for Christ, you could request funds to enhance and strengthen your mission efforts. Any Hawaii Pacific Baptist Convention church can request funds from this offering to strengthen and support the evangelistic and compassion ministries of your church.
