ELICAMP (Encounter of the Leaders in the Field)

    This semiannual event was held here in João Pessoa.  Its purpose?  To encourage and edify workers in the interior of the states in the Northeast of Brazil.  Nine congregations were represented.
    This weekend’s focus was on evangelizing children.  We pondered, planned, and prayed about how to help young people serve God at an early age in life and continue to walk in faithful holiness.  There were many great lessons that made me question my own thoughts about the importance of making sure children hear God’s Word. 
    One of the books suggested for reading on the topic was: Transforming Children into Spiritual Champions by George Barna.  The phrase on the cover of the book reads:  “The enemy has plans for your children – do you?”
    I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we all left this weekend encouraged to make plans to take better care of our children and plant the seed of the Gospel in the hearts of children in general. 
    Take care of your children or someone else will.
