Zambia: Chris and Heidi Ness
Hello, boys and girls! It's me, Buddy Barrel! I'm here in Zambia with Chris and Heidi Ness. Read below how they used the BGMC funds you helped provide. Go to the "Downloads" below and print out the colorful reports for your own BGMCKids Passport binder!
Hello, Kids! This is Chris and Heidi Ness, your missionaries to the kids in Zambia!
Thanks so much for helping us minister to the children of Zambia. We received BGMC money to buy some ministry tools. One tool we bought was a gorilla costume. We put Chichi the Gorilla in the back of our trailer. As we drive through the neighborhoods, hundreds of kids follow us to the site of our kids' crusade.
We then preach about Jesus using puppets, characters, and gospel illusions. At just one of our crusades, 660 kids gave their hearts to Jesus!
Your BGMC offerings also provided us with several puppets and puppet tapes. Just like you, kids in Zambia love puppets! We have trained several people how to use puppets to minister in their churches here in Zambia.
We were also able to purchase 250 books called Let the Children Pray. We gave them to pastors so they could teach the kids in their churches how to pray. We also give Sunday School teachers "prayer tools" that help children learn to pray for other children of the world.
Thank you so much for giving to BGMC and for helping us minister to kids in Zambia! Keep it up!
