Children reach out
MAKING a difference in the lives of the needy, children of a kid’s club in Labasa reached out to a squatter settlement assisting 10 families with bags of clothes.
Members of the New Zion Kids Club visited families at Bouma squatter settlement on Saturday where they also prayed for the families.
Club head Vani Irvine said the visit to the settlement was part of the great commission given by Jesus Christ to save souls for his kingdom.
“The age does not matter at all because Jesus uses those who are available and willing to spread the good news and our children are doing that,” she said.
“These children collected clothes from their families and in giving it out to the unfortunate families, they prayed and shared the word of God.
“In doing this activity, we also reaffirm with people through the Bible messages that God will never leave us nor forsake us.”
With today’s rapid change in technology, Mrs Irvine said it was imperative for parents to guide their children well and be led by the word of God.
“Our children are vulnerable and exposed to issues we face in this world and with this club, we assure the members that God will never deny you during these hard times,” she said.
“So we work with them and are grateful to their parents for allowing them to join this club because we will continue to be led by God the Holy Spirit.
“We will have more activities as such to help the unfortunate families and those who are longing for God’s love.”
The members are mostly primary school students who live in Delailabasa.
Families assisted thanked the children and their families for the gift.
