Storyhouse Update

Through Dubois Kid's Fair in April, 42 children heard the Gospel message. Through this event many children with unbiblical catholic beliefs were able to hear the truth from God's Word. This is also where we were able to test out our new outdoor activity - paper airplane flying! The children have had so much fun folding and flying their own planes we have done it at our other events this Spring as well. Inside, we have given the message of salvation through the Gospel plane evangelism tool.

At the We Care event on May 4th, despite the gloomy weather, three children received Christ and three others were counseled for assurance. Through Storyhouse ministry at Cohen's purpose event in Dubois, two children received Christ and two others were counseled for assurance. 

All children who received Christ or were counseled for assurance have received a devotional in the mail.

We thank the 24 volunteers who made these events happen!

Storyhouse Training Update

In April, 16 volunteers gathered at First Baptist Church in Dubois to learn all the ropes of Storyhouse ministry!

From reviewing the Wordless book, practicing crafts and learning necessary attendance skills as well as conversation ideas, those in attendance are now geared up to serve this summer!

Easter Ministry Results

Praise the Lord, 105 children were impacted with the Gospel through Easter Party Clubs during he month of March! Clubs were held at low income housing facilities, churches, homes as well as the Punxsutawney Elementary School. Over twenty volunteers & workers served to make these parties happen.

Good News Club Impact

During the Winter/Spring 2024 session of Good News Club® Brookville celebrated over 100 students in attendance! Punxsutawney Elementary school also had high attendance because of activity buses running. Lessons on the ministry of Paul encouraged saved children to share their faith and a group of 5th & 6th grade girls caught that vision and spent their lunch break telling their peers about Jesus!
