Each one bring one

By Aaron E. Ziebarth 

Each one bring one. That is our desire - we are praying that God will double the amount of children and volunteers who are participating in Released Time.  Some have wondered, "Why"? Others have suggested, "That is a lot of extra work." 

There are three main reasons for wanting to reach more children:

First, the Lord Jesus Christ himself came to this earth to seek and to save the lost (Luke 19:10). It is His desire in 2 Peter 3:9 that no one should perish but everyone should come to repentance.

Secondly, He has given us the great commission. He has told us to GO and make disciples (Matthew 28:19-20). We have the opportunity to reach almost 30,000 children in our region. We want to make the most of the time he has given us for the days are evil (Ephesians 5:15). 

And the faces of the children show how much they benefit. I am gratified every time I see the looks of anticipation on the faces of boys and girls coming into RT. I have written several previous blogs about this:
