I had so much fun teaching the first-graders at New Covenant Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Abingdon, Maryland, U.S.A., about the Great Commission. It was such a great blessing and encouragement for me to hear the little ones of the congregation answer questions about the gospel, Christ’s person and saving work, evangelism, making disciples, baptism, church planting, poverty, Islam, the Middle East, ISIS, persecution, refugees, etc. They know a lot. With children like them, the future of missions looks good.
This was part of the church’s 2016 Missions Conference.
Praise the Lord!
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
the fruit of the womb a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
are the children[a] of one’s youth.
Blessed is the man
who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame
when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
