Ruth launched the Good News Club on Wednesday afternoon Sept. 14 at the Good News Chapel church plant with an eager group. With Katie Speer leading the elementary aged kids in a 20 minute mix of English and Japanese Gospel music session, followed by a creative introduction to what the Bible is and the story of creation by Mr. Tetsuya Kazama, Ruth directed the children in a follow up time to the Bible story via flash cards and games. 17 children attended with 9 moms and one grandmother in the mix. Not only did the children (and moms) learn about the days of creation during the hour long Sunday school like meeting, memory verses were assigned for presentation at the next meeting on September 28th. Ruth has envisioned this ministry for quite some time and the door of opportunity readily opened this fall. This new ministry is scheduled through December 2016 after which it will be re-assessed in light of effectiveness, available missionary personnel and attendance. Pray for God’s anointing on this 7 session kids program.
