Karl, I spent my whole day just sitting in front of my computer viewing your training videos - the Kids Church Cooking Show ones; using storytelling, puppets, balloons, magics, object lessons and also about "Evaluating your Ministry" telling about how you diagnose the health of your ministry. Honestly I could say that it was indeed a realization and a blessing spending time watching and hearing those words and insights from you. I was thinking of the ministry that God has entrusted to me, I work with children church for almost five years now and I realize that there are a lot of things that was missing. I decide to talk to God and early this morning when I woke up I prayed to God to really bring back that passion of ministering with the kids because I think sometimes it's just for the sake of work, because I was assigned to work with kids and the very main goal of making disciples has not been realized. Today I was determined to take time to spend time praying for children's ministry and that God will use me effectively. Thank you.
- Inspired, Mona
