Your support for this special day of giving helps kids like Zai.

Zai has had many people pouring into him throughout his time at Connie Maxwell Children’s Ministries (CMCM)—cottage parents, staff, and those at Connie Maxwell Baptist Church. After attending Vacation Bible School, he began having questions and wanting to know what it meant to be a follower of Jesus. One night, after cottage conversations, a weekly occurrence when cottage parents study the Bible with the kids, Zai wanted his house parent to pray with him. That night, Zai prayed and gave his life to Jesus!

On August 27, Zai was baptized at Connie Maxwell Baptist Church. Along with Zai, seven other children and one mother in the Family Care program surrendered their lives to Christ and were baptized.

Thank you for participating in #GivingTuesday so that more children like Zai may find safety, hope, and healing in Jesus’ name. Your gift matters.
