What participants are saying about the course
“I thank God for allowing me to attend this course. I know that through children God can do great things. Therefore, I mobilised some churches to ask the children to come together as a body of Christ from different denominations. But the same day the rebels planned to come to attack our town and people were fleeing across the border into Cameroon. That day parents came with their children. I told them God could do great things through children.
The children worshiped God and something wonderful happened. God send rain that prevented the rebels to come into N’Djamena and they went back. God used the prayers of little ones as instruments to stop the rebels to come to N’Djamena. God can use children all over Africa because we are going through difficulty, through wars and poverty, but God hear the little ones’ cries, bring peace, and change into Africa.”
