Five Mission Trips—111 Salvations-August 2023
This has been an incredible summer, with more than 202 participants from five states on our mission trips. We are forever grateful for those leaders who invested in the lives of many preteens and students. The L.I.T. I-Go Mission Trips are life-changing to both those who are reached with the Gospel and especially those who take part in the trips. We have the privilege of joining God on His mission to reach the world and of experiencing His power flowing throughout lives as we love and reach those in need with the Gospel message. Each trip was quite unique in itself. The stories and testimonies consistently bear witness that the Lord showed up and had His way in many lives. The kids were able to join the Lord in leading 111 children and adults to Christ. We praise His name for allowing us the honor of serving Him.
Littleton, Colorado Mission Trip Report (June 11-21)
Words cannot describe our experience in Littleton, Colorado. The Lord blessed us in so many ways. The L.I.T.s were moved powerfully by the Holy Spirit in prayer and ministry in the community. Many lives were changed, both in the community and among those who attended the trip.
We witnessed kids praying intently for each other and for the community during the trip. It is an incredible joy to see the Holy Spirit work in and through them. You could tell the Holy Spirit was moving by the way they prayed.
We are forever grateful for Horizon Christian Fellowship and the leadership of DeAnn Noyes. What an amazing team of folks who worked to make the mission trip successful!
We Want Our Kids to Be Able to Explain the Gospel by Michele Whitney
Our family is so excited to go on the L.I.T. mission trip and share the Good News of Jesus with others. Since January, we’ve put the L.I.T. devotional and curriculum into our daily Bible study routine. We’ve challenged each other to get each Bible verse memorized as we’ve worked our way through the material. Each week we added a new verse to our verse wall. I continue to give the kids stickers each Friday if they can recite all of the verses. They’ve done an excellent job.
We Have a House Full of Jesus Lovers by DeAnn Noyes
In the spring of 2019 when the Lord introduced me to Clint and Leaders In Training, I had several prayer burdens for the children and families that attended our ministry. The first was that the children and youth would know the Lord more deeply and recognize their ability to serve Him for His Kingdom purposes right now, at their ages. Second, that parents would be equipped to effectively disciple their children at home. Third, that we would be able to reach the multiple apartment communities around us with the gospel of Jesus Christ. At the time, we had a midweek service that was anemic, with only one family attending and one servant committed to ministering to those three children. There was no midweek service for our youth. Churches in our area were all discontinuing their midweek services due to low attendance.
L.I.T. Empowering The Next Generation Conference, Burkina Faso by Heidi Hayslip
We cannot tell you how providential this training was. God connected us with this new system of discipleship for kids and with Pastor Isaac from Zambia. It was all God. And we saw that this was just the thing to take our children's pastors to the next level. God loves the children of Burkina so much that He is setting them up to be activated in their faith, and used by the Holy Spirit to be disciples that make disciples!
This 3-Day training was SO POWERFUL and well received. People said it was a total paradigm shift. They cannot wait to put it into practice.
God's presence was with us those 3 days, and the teaching was so anointed and rich. We praise God for it. People have been thanking me (Heidi) and the speaker again and again every day since the conference. Thank you for making this happen! Clear here to hear Pastor Isaac’s prayer of blessing.
