This week marks the start of a new session of Divorce Care 4 Kids (DC4K). For me, it will be my second session serving as a leader in Divorce Care 4 Kids. I wrote a series of lengthy articles earlier this year recapping last year’s session. I will actually be the Lead Facilitator for this session as the woman who usually leads the group is pregnant and due early in the session. I am looking forward to leading the group, and God has already been working. At the beginning of the summer, we had one Safe Keeper, one woman who helps to coordinate everything but doesn’t get to spend much time in the room and the lady who led last year who would be there for a few weeks until the baby came. At our pre-launch meeting last night, we had three additional leaders plus three more student helpers and one other potential leader who could not make it. God has truly blessed us with a great team this year, and I am looking forward to working with them!
As we get set to launch the program tomorrow with a combined parent/child orientation, we are praying that God would fill our classroom with hurting kids who need this program. Typically these programs do not fill up ahead of time (even despite registration deadlines), and our class went from 5 or 6 to 17 over the course of the final week last year. Please join me in praying that the same thing (or more) will happen this year.
Also, if you are interested in praying for the leaders and kids in our group this year, please let me know by commenting below, and I will be in contact with you. I have seen how God can, and does, act in the lives of these kids, and we are hoping to have this particular group blanketed in prayers from around the country.
So, why am I sharing all of this here? Well, you might notice a decrease in the frequency of articles over the next several weeks as we get things rolling with this group. Those articles will pick back up in a few weeks when things settle into more of a routine. I hope that you will continue to visit Divorce Ministry 4 Kids and join us in getting the word out about these kids and the need to minister to them. If you are interested in writing a guest article for Divorce Ministry 4 Kids during this time to help “fill the gap,” please let me know and we can make that happen!
