“…Little Carlos was orphaned when he lost his mother and father in an accident. He came to the church for the first time when we gave out the backpacks to the children. (his name had been put on the list)
Carlos brought his grandmother with him. He told us that in the 2 years since he lost his mother and father he has not had any Christmas gift because they had no money. Little Carlos and his grandmother surrendered their lives to Jesus that day! (Now their names are on the greatest list … Their names are written in the book of life!!)”
– Pastor Castelazo of Tuxtla
“Chavajebal was a very hard place that is controlled by the rebels. For 30 years they have threatened Christians as myself with poles, machetes, and guns! After so much resistance they invited us to come (because of the KKC Backpacks full of school supplies) and 400 people attended! … It was unimaginable to me but many children prayed to be saved, including their teachers!! One little girls mother said that when her daughter went to bed she was still clutching her backpack. She asked her daughter to put the backpack away but her daughter said, ‘I never had a backpack like this mama. It says Jesus Loves Me on the front. My papa doesn’t love me because he beats me so much but Jesus, yes, Jesus loves me!’”
– Pastor Javier Lopez
Above are two of the many testimonies from the HEA Kingdom Kids Christmas outreach that makes me very eager and excited to be joining in the work of this outreach November 25th-December 2nd.
HEA stands for Harvest Evangelistic Association.
The Annual “Kingdom Kids Christmas” Backpack Outreach is one of HEA’s most powerful Front Line Evangelistic Missions Outreaches…
Every year, with your help, HEA puts together 20,000 Christmas Backpacks, loaded with school supplies, toys, cookies, lollipops, and a powerful gospel booklet. They train and equip the Native Pastors from over 400 remote mountain villages to use the backpacks as a tool to reach their entire community with the gospel.
The entire family is invited to these “Kingdom Kids Christmas” parties (which at times attract the entire village) and the gospel is boldly preached at every location!! These children’s backpacks are a powerful tool that opens the door to share the love of Jesus in some of the most terribly persecuted, poverty stricken communities you have ever seen.
To sponsor a backpack (it is only $10 to fill and deliver them), click here.
HEA is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to reaching the lost, wherever they are. Their only desire is to be pleasing to our Lord Jesus Christ in all they do … to know the will of God and to do it with all that is in them!! Your help is greatly needed and truly appreciated.
To help me in the cost of going, you can donate on this page. Whether you choose to help finace my trip or not, I am leaving in less than a week (11/25/18) and I greatly appreciate your prayers! Thank you all for your love!
“We love Him because He first loved us.”
