From June 20-27, a team of 200 children, students and adults from three different states went into 15 Tulsa area communities to share the Gospel. Churches in the Tulsa metro area, including Sapulpa, Foundation, spent five days going into these communities doing music, playing games, teaching Bible stories, and sharing the Gospel.
The amazing thing about the whole experience is that many of the people led to Christ were led by 4th, 5th and 6th graders. These children have been preparing for months, and they led the music, games, Bible stories and invitation. Junior high and high school students led the teams with adult help, while the elementary-aged kids did the ministry in the different communities.
As a result of their efforts, 56 people came to know Christ! We estimate that we ministered to 365 children in mobile home parks, city parks and churches. Each day, we fed lunch to all of the children in the communities. More than 2,400 meals were served through the week. For many children, it was their first time to ever lead someone to Christ.
Each evening of the mission trip, the children, students and adults gathered for worship. It was an amazing time. Each evening, they spent two to three hours in worship and praying.
On Thursday night, June 25, Sapulpa, Foundation hosted a “KidzBlitz,” which is an event put on by the sponsoring churches, and we invited all of the kids from all of the communities for an evening of pizza, fun and a presentation of the Gospel. We had more than 400 kids and parents in attendance.
