Children ministry in every district is growing. New teachers are being trained. Compared with the handful of Sunday school teachers we had a few years ago, now we have 80 teachers! 12 of them are trainers who can train more teachers.

Every January in Chinese lunar calendar, each district would have their own children’s meeting. Usually, around 700 children attend across the districts.

 

On the contrary, our youth ministry is in great need. All those from age 13 to unmarried are counted as youth here. The original youth ministry leader, who was a middle-aged brother, just resigned. Now two younger brothers are in charge.

 

These new leaders are faithful, but need more training. They don’t have a developed plan to help engage the young people in church. Internet, cellphone, games, apps are more interesting to the youth. Church is boring. We need efficient workers with a heart to win youth back to the Lord. Please pray for the young generation and for a reawakening to the Truth.
