The leading partner for this KIDStory work was Timothy Children Development Ministries. Timothy Children Development Ministries works in a very poor, rural area on the outskirts of Kolkata. This area does not even have regular roads, only mud paths which flood when it rains making travel an issue. The Pastor who heads this ministry reaches out to local children and youth. He sends some of them to Bible college when they return they plant new churches. Their main outreach strategy is to reach the children.
The 17 teachers and pastors who attended the training were thrilled at the new methodology to connect with children.
One of the highlights of this training were the participants themselves. Most of them were youth from non-Christian families, hence their zeal to learn new ideas was amazing. The desire to reach the children with God’s word is incredibly strong is a blessing to this area.
