The foundation of This Little Light of Mine’s began in the heart of World Missions Director David Griffis’ wife, Judy. In her many travels, she began to see needy children all over the world. This created a desire to help these precious, forgotten ones, and also encourage children their age in the United States to get involved in missions and help too.
This Little Light of Mine will aid leadership, pastors, children’s workers, and parents in teaching kids to help other kids around the world by providing them practical and affordable opportunities to do so. It can teach children at a young age that they can be a light to other children in faraway places. Emphasizing basic human necessities, which all children need to survive, the project is designed so that kids can help kids send their little light around the world.
“But Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.’” Matthew 19:14 NKJV
