“But Jesus said, ‘Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’ And He put His hands on their heads and blessed them before He left.” Matt 19:14,15

Jesus certainly loved little children. He loved to have them near. He enjoyed telling them stories and seeing their happy faces. There is something special about children. They bring us happiness and joy. How often are we blessed by the things they say and do.

Yesterday I went to minister to one of my customers. Little did I know that I was the one that was going to be ministered to. I was blessed in an amazing way. Amani is a lovely Catholic lady that has purchased many of our books and resources for her young family. Amani shared two beautiful dreams that her children, only days ago had dreamt. One of the children had a dream that while in the play ground, Jesus came up to her and started playing with her. The sparkle in Amani’s eyes, while she related the dream, was something to behold!!
The other child dreamt about the second coming of Jesus and shared with her mother how beautiful it was and how she cannot wait till Jesus returns.

How blessed I was when hearing these stories!! Amani then said, “And just before the two dreams, my 8 yr old son was asking me how long it will be before Jesus comes back!” This opened up a great discussion on the second coming of Jesus.

With every visit and delivery I am noticing more and more how God is using our Adventist resources in this family’s spiritual growth, and I am confident to say that their beliefs are now more aligned to the teachings of the bible.

Praise our God for Literature Ministry, and thank you God for the little children that you are using to be a blessing to us.
