Dear Supporters and Intercessors,
Your support seed is working to make it possible to plant seeds in the hearts of children’s workers, parents, and leaders in Southern Africa. It is also aiding to raise a generation of children to lift their voices in praise and to be part of a global effort to pray for unreached people groups.
Stand with us in prayer for God to move in the hearts of children as we prepare for a change in the global atmosphere. God is preparing hearts to worship Him in holiness, to stand against evil, to stand in the gap for the nations (Psalm 8:2, 2:8), and to be part of the Great Commission in this end time.
Regional coordinators are working with country coordinators in preparation to mobilize children’s groups in their countries to be part of the Global Day of Children and Families Praying for Unreached People Groups on July 22, 2023. This will be an event on Zoom where video clips will be sent in from participating nations. This is an invitation to experience this event with children around the world. Information for the event is as follows:
• Zoom: https://aqueductproject.zoom.us/j/81957284208 (passcode: 6913)
• Livestream on Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ChildrenCIMN
• More Resources can be accessed at: www.joshuaproject.net or www.weavefamily.org
I have been traveling with a music team to raise children’s praises to our God in the nations. I am thankful for Soekie Krog and Ami Anderson, our music specialist and sound engineer. What an incredible season of hearing kids raise the level of praise and worship in the nations, using their singing voices in their own language to declare who God is. The recorded set of songs is a gift to the children, parents, and leaders to share across the nations. We pray they will be used to mobilize more kids to learn the songs and build their capacity for praise, even song writing. You can hear the Malawian children praise in Chichewa by following this link: https://youtube.com/watch?v=GPVMETUeSaU&feature=share7.
In the next newsletter, the links will be available to hear the children’s praise in Madagascar and Mauritius. Pray with us as more invitations are coming in, that we may go and train child evangelists and raise the level of praise with kids in more nations. Thank God with me for Soekie using her gift to honor God and sharing a heart for children.
This past March and April, 140 students were trained by Soekie Krog in Lilongwe, Malawi to understand the impact song, music, and sound has on children, and how to use it to effectively teach children God’s Word in memorable ways. The students came from all over Malawi and the sessions were recorded to be disbursed to those interested. Find the training here: https://youtube.com/watch?v=4wuveMREDpw&feature=share7.
During the days of training, schools were being visited to present morning devotions. Soekie, the musician, presented times of worship, and, through songs, led students to Christ and to a commitment to live holy and worship God, their creator. On the first visit to a school in Malawi, more than 2,000 kids responded. In South Africa, the Spirit moved over the children at a school, and weeping continued the next day as the Holy Spirit moved in them.
In May in South Africa, a training video for the children’s workers was made at the Pentecostal Holiness Church Headquarters in Krugersdorp. This training video will be made available for others in South Africa for continued learning.
In June, the training will continue on to the islands in the Indian Ocean. It will be done in the languages of Malagasy and Creole for the children’s workers to learn the same in Madagascar and Mauritius. Continue to pray as this July I will visit Rodriquez and make plans with the connections there to reach the children.

Thank you for sending in funds to purchase Bibles for Cure Children’s Orthopedic Hospital in Malawi. The hospital aims to give every child a Bible to take home to their village, in hopes they will impact their village through the reading of Scripture. To support this challenge and help provide 100 Bibles per week, use this link: https://give.iphc.org/project/malawi-bibles.
In Madagascar, training is being planned for child evangelists to be equipped to reach and disciple children in their communities and schools. Bibles in Malagasy are needed to provide for the students before the training takes place. You can assist in purchasing Malagasy Bibles from the Bible Society here: https://give.iphc.org/project/meyer-althea-ministry.
In the months ahead ministry will continue in more nations. I will be returning to Malawi on Aug. 6 to reset and prepare resources for the invitations received from other nations. Thank you for sending me to serve the will of our Heavenly Father (Matthew 18:14).
Mission blessings on your support for His work,
