L.I.T. Empowering The Next Generation Conference, Burkina Faso by Heidi HayslipHeidi 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.

I Miss Being a Children's Pastor, February Newsletter

I Miss Being a Children's Pastor by Dr. Clint MayPicture3

You may think I am a little crazy, but I miss those days of being at church every week as a children’s pastor. I miss seeing the kids coming to church and being there to welcome them with loving arms. I call it my kid fix. Kids bring life to me. There are a lot of people just like me in churches everywhere.

God has wired us differently. We can be in a room with kids that are seemingly going nuts, but that's right where we want to be. For the uncalled, they look at us and shake their heads in bewilderment. They think we are crazy. Children's ministry is a definitely a calling!

Children Are Like Stealth Fighters—Flying Under the Radar, January 2023

Years ago, we prayed for an open door at Greenbriar Elementary School in Fort Worth, Texas.2005 01 23 13.27.45

We desired to share the Gospel with as many children as we could.

The Lord answered our prayers with a Yes.

During the next several weeks, many children trusted Christ as their Savior.

These were exciting times, but we did not want to leave it there.

We taught those children how to pray and spend time with the Lord daily, and we were committed to training them on how to share their faith.

Then, we encouraged them to go and tell others about the Lord.

Are Kids Are Under a Major Spiritual Attack-New Year's Resolution

300 The BoxYou might have noticed that our kids are under attack from every direction:  the government, public schools, media, music, and even their families. In the last two years, it is as if the country I have grown to love has gone insane.

But there is hope! Amidst the insanity, children are on fire for the Lord. I believe that believing children are the church today, and it’s a joy to watch what the Lord does in and through them when they discover His purpose.

Internationally the most significant spiritual harvest field is children—seventy percent of those who trust Christ worldwide are between four to fourteen years of age.

God’s Amazing GraceFirst LIT Group

by Dr. Clint May

The last two years have had many challenges. The year 2020 started out with many questions if we would still be here today. As that cloud lifted, I saw hope, not in myself but in the Lord. No matter what happened, He was in control of my life and L.I.T., not me.

In October 2021, my wife, Vicki, was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was as if another dark cloud formed to block our view of God’s grace again. We walked through this trial together. Today, Vicki is cancer free. Her last doctor visit showed she is all clear—praise the Lord! Even though it was a very dark beginning of the year, it has become brighter and brighter each new day.
