One of the strategic traits of our ministry is the after school program offered through our ministries and church plans. The Alinarea Church, a church plant of KBC, is very creative in offering various classes. The total foot traffic of the church per week is close to a hundred and fifty. There are at least two groups that meet for Bible study weekly. There are English classes offered to those needing help in homework preparation.
Children are taught spiritual disciplines as prayer is offered at every class and event.
Every activity, from Bible Studies to ESL to Art-school, includes a spiritual dimension. In the country with some of the highest migration per capita in the world, our ministry provides the very much needed adult presence in these kids lives. The time spent with the kids is an investment in their future.
The ministry is constantly developing creative ways to teach and impact the upcoming generation with the Good News and help shape the future of Moldova and former USSR.
The plan was to try to reach out to forty-sixty kids that the church made an initial connection to in June. It was the last location left, and there were 125 gifts left. As we drove to the site with severity gifts, our team was wondering what to do with the leftovers. As time began to draw near to start the program, the room was full to its capacity with over seventy kids. In Moldovan culture, though, it is commonplace to be late. The place kept filling up with kids walking in. So, we decided to call the office, and one of the pastors loaded his car with all the remaining gifts. He arrived just in time by the end of the program. The room was packed. The presentation, songs, and Gospel presentation went very well. By the time we gave the care packages away in the end, we had only two left-over in our hands. God provided more care packages than that we thought was possible, and then He gave us just the right number of kids to share with and impact with the Good News.
Police and firefighters have been in the focus of KBC Ministry outreach for over thirteen years now. During January "Gift of Hope" outreach we had a wonderful opportunity to impact almost two hundred children from the families of the civil servants. Through the divine appointment, the Lord brought us to the town of Calarasi, where there is a pastor/missionary who was looking for ministry partners to serve alongside him. This particular outreach was quite special. One of KBC Ministries church plants organized the Gospel presentation for the children and their parents. KBC mother church worked on building the gifts. The local partner in town used this as an opportunity to reach out to police, fire department, and DA office, delivering the "Gift of Hope" through big presentation events and personal visits. In all, the Good News was shared with hundreds of people.
Gift of Hope is an outreach project designed to share the Good News in a form of theater and music events. It is a wonderful opportunity to speak about the greatest gift God has offered to each person - salvation by grace through faith in Christ alone. This event allows the Gospel message to shine across various venues. In this specific case ninety-eight student, some of their parent and school staff have been impacted in the town on the boarder with Ukraine. The program was presented by KBC Volunteer team and organized by the church-planter.
