It was a week of missional activities, as the children from across the Duncans district of Seventh-day Adventist churches launched out into a grand Children Series, under the theme, “The Power of Prayer – When Children Pray”.

The initiative was a combined effort by all four churches in the Duncans district, to include the Duncans, Spicy Hill, Carey Park and Rio Bueno congregations.

Speaking about the programme, Sister Annessa Williams, one of the team of coordinators who planned the series, said that, “The initial hope was to foster the habit of praying in our children, for their parents to see what prayer can do for the children. We also wanted to impact each community in the district; thus, we had eight speakers, presenting on different topics, over an eight-day period, and I must say that the Lord has indeed used the children to bring the message home.”

The speakers for the series were Michaelia Foster and Marquice Taylor from Carey Park, Brianna Richards and Tabiyell Watson from Spicy Hill, Kamaria Bennett and Kaysia Baxter from Rio Bueno, and Kamar Clarke and Shemar Campbell from Duncans.

O’brien Hawthorne, Pastor of the Duncan’s district, posited, “The children series was an inspiration to all who attended. It was a great week, culminating with a grand central celebration at the NJC campsite, on Sabbath May 11. What a joy it was to sit and listen to God’s children declaring His Word with holy boldness and life!”

At the end of the programme, two children were baptized.

In the words of Ellen G. White, “Those who love God should feel deeply interested in the children and youth. To them God can reveal His truth and salvation. Jesus calls the little ones that believe on Him, the lambs of His flock. He has a special love for and interest in the children… The most precious offering that the children can give to Jesus, is the freshness of their childhood” (Reflecting Christ, p.373).
