One of the most amazing missions stories I’ve ever read is about George Müller, the man who provided home and refuge to more than 10,000 orphan children during his lifetime. If you have not read his story, do get a copy of his biography. You can finf information on-line, at Wikipedia for example. There are also videos on YouTube.
What is so remarkable is that he never asked anybody for help, except his Heavenly Father. We think it is remarkable, but that should be the most natural thing. God called him to set up these orphanages, so why should he go to other sources?
God used his servants to provide for Geroge Müller. One time a milk cart broke outside of the orphanage, a morning when there was nothing for breakfast. That same morning the baker had been awoken early to bake bread. I’ve written a story about it.
I’ve open a new page, called Mission Stories. I have a passion for missions and want children to catch the vision. God called me to mission service at age 10, so I am very hopeful about what God will do for the new generation.
Like I pray for my grandchildren, I pay for all our children, that they be champions in God’s Kingdom. We need modern-day Daniels and Esthers.
Welcome to read the story and share it with your children: MISSION STORIES
Thanksgiving week has been my celebration of gratitude to God for the stories that have traveled around the world making boys and girls happy. When I started putting my stories on-line six years ago I could never imagine how far they would reach.
Mildred and Abraham enjoy the stories at bed-time because their mothers reads the stories to them. Here they are enjoying the celebration!
My granddaughter Sarah celebrated by writing a story. She made me so happy when she said, “I love the way you talk about God and Jesus in every story.” And that’s what she wanted to do when she wrote her story. You can read about my celebration in my personal blog: kelund.wordpress.com
My contribution to the celebration was a story with the testimony of how God called me to work with children at age ten. The stories we celebrated were in Spanish, but the amazing thing is how we’re coming right along with the English. You can now read my testimony under STORIES FOR CHILDREN. It’s been close to 60 years since I answered “yes” to the call, and I’ve been working with children ever since.
I saw palm trees in the vision when God called me. I waited for 30 years to see those palm trees; but the vision came true. God’s timing is not the same as ours; but we can trust Him fully.
Here, in our English page, we are climbing our way up to 100 stories. One story at a time and we will get there.
As I am standing with my Spanish binder with 300 stories, one day I’ll stand with an English binder. Thanks for following me on this journey. May many children be blessed!
I have not forgotten you, dear friends who come to this page. I have been working hard on another story that involves India. Since I wrote about the Missionary Thomas God has put India on my heart. I hope to some day personally go there and bring them my teaching materials. But first I have to finish my projects in Spanish. I am covering the entire Bible with stories to download for free. I still have 80 some lessons to finish, which I hope to have done in two years. Then I will devote my time to English.
I used to have some help to get the stories done in English but I don’t have that help at present, that’s the reason I don’t publish many stories here. Spanish is my priority. Pray with me that I will find someone to work with me on the English stories.
But I am happy to announce that you can now download 6 story-papers about William Carey. There will also be a PowerPoint and pictures that you might want to use to tell the story.
Go to the page WILLIAM CAREY. God bless you in your work with children!
The great Bible translator
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you,
and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria,
and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8
Jesus promise was fulfilled on the Day of Pentecost. From that day on the gospel message has spread to the ends of the earth. But there are still many people who have not heard the Good News.
One of the first missionaries, along with Peter, Paul and the other apostles was Thomas. We read about his missionary endeavors not in the Bible but in history books. Thomas went as a missionary to India.
