It is another month of BGMC! We are excited to continue to raise money for missions, while learning about another area of the world! I am so thankful that even though we can’t have BGMC Sunday at the church, we can still have it from HOME! God is so good! So grab your Bible and Buddy Barrel and let’s have BGMC – “El Salvador”!
Below you will see a message from Mrs. Green about El Salvador…a yummy recipe you can try…and a true missions story! Are you ready for BGMC Online?!
BGMC is a missions education program for kids! BGMC equips kids to know, to care, to pray, to give, and to reach the lost. We have a two-fold purpose, to reach the children of the world and to create a heart of compassion in kids. BGMC stands for, “Boys and Girls Missionary Challenge”.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
MISSIONS MOMENT – with Mrs. Green
Miracle in El Salvador
A true missionary story as experienced by the Sobey family – missionaries at King’s Castle Ministries – which started in El Salvador.
Founded in 1989, King’s Castle Ministries purposed to raise up an army of young, Spirit-filled warriors who would invade Latin America with the simple message that ‘Jesus saves and is coming soon. Today that vision has expanded to dozens of countries throughout the world. Working hand-in-hand with the local church, thousands of young men and women are giving their lives for the cause of global evangelism in the various aspects of the ministry.
“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up.”James 4:10
King’s Castle Ministry was started in El Salvador…but God grew this ministry to spread to other countries around El Salvador, including Nicaragua! Do you know that our church has gone to Nicaragua multiple times on missions trips to work with King’s Castle – we have done street ministry with clowns, songs, and testimonies, and one time we did a basketball camp like Upward – using sports to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the kids and their families! Here are some pictures from some of the different missions trips to King’s Castle.
PRAYER POINTS FOR THIS MONTH:
- Pray for our missionaries and for the church leaders in El Salvador.
- Pray for the kids of El Salvador and for their families, that they would learn to serve God together.
- Pray that gang members and drug addicts would know Jesus’ love and be set free.
- Pray for the thousands of students in the Bible schools, that as they become pastors and missionaries – God would use them to spread the Gospel around the world!
BGMC BLESSES EL SALVADOR
Can you recite the verse (James 4:10) by using these picture clues to figure out the words?
For example, if we take a look at the first clue we get the sound HUM from hummingbird and the word BELL – say them together and you get the word: HUMBLE. Give it a shot! 🙂
HINT: Use the word “oar” instead of “paddle”, and when you see a minus symbol with a letter it means take that letter out of the word
31IN31 BUDDY BARREL CHALLENGE
This month we have a challenge for you: $31 in 31 days! There are 31 days in August…can you raise $31 for BGMC? Offer to do yardwork for a neighbor, host a bake sale or lemonade stand, ask your parents about some extras jobs around the house…get creative! We are hoping to do a BGMC Fun Day Event on August 31 – how awesome would it be for each of us to bring our $31 that day and be able to impact the world with the Gospel – through the ministry of BGMC! Together, can we raise over $1000 this month? Be sure to watch the entire video – there is some incentive 😉
BGMC this Sunday: Empty your Buddy Barrel and get this month’s handouts!
Have you enjoying learning about other countries, missionaries, and how God is working through us? We have a BGMC area set up at church – it is located where the self check-in station used to be (across from the main Kids’ Check-In). There is a BGMC poster with a handout about El Salvador and the Summer Bible Reading Challenge log sheets. Be sure to grab one of each! There is also going to be a bucket there this Sunday – for you to empty your Buddy Barrels! Hope you have been able to put some spare change in that bank of yours…I can’t wait to empty mine this Sunday!
We look forward to continuing to grow together!
Much love and care,
Pastor Vicky & Mrs. Green
