Little Lights 2014 Reflection: Joey

0 Comment

Some may ask what is Little Lights? Well, Little Lights is an organization formed to educate and keep kids out of harms way. How do they do that? They achieve this by creating after school help and summer camps for children living in the projects to keep them off the streets.

Entering Little Lights Urban Ministries for a week was truly life changing. During Summer Lights, we helped wonderful staffers maintain the children. Coming into this task, I expected that I would just let God use me to express His love for the kids during the week. I was surprised because by the end of the week it was the other way around. He showed how much He cared about everyone through the kids and the staff.

I remember the first day, I asked one of the children if he loved Jesus and he gave me this look as if I was crazy. His response was, “Of course! Everyone loves Jesus!” The children all had such strong faith, and it was amazing. James 2:5 states ”Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which He hath promised to them that love Him? (KJV)” This certainly rang true throughout the week.
