With only five months to go until the next Catalyst Festival, we have been reflecting on what God did last year and looking ahead to 2015. Since last May we have heard many amazing stories from lots of different churches of how God met with children of all ages at in a powerful and life-changing way at last year’s event.
It is such a privilege to be involved, and so inspiring to see how God not only meets with the kids themselves but also uses them to meet with others. Just last week I was contacted by one of the leaders who served in Ignite (school years 3-6) who said the following:
In one of the sessions I was with my small group and a girl in my group had a prophetic word for me. She had no idea I had lost my job and had had many miscarriages but the word spoke straight to my situation! Now I am in a new job that I love and am 6 months pregnant. Praise God! He really does speak through young children - if only we listened to them more. What a blessing it was to be on the Ignite team.
Ettie (age 14) was on the team this year and says:
I served in Catalyst Kids and I felt God move me to pray for someone with a knee problem. I looked around and my eyes kept landing on a particular girl. I went up to her and asked if she had anything she wanted me to pray for. She replied that her knee had been hurting for the past 3 weeks. I prayed for her and she said it was instantly better! This was such an encouragement and has helped me grow in my faith as I had never seen God use my prayers to heal before.
These are just two of the many stories of what God was doing in Catalyst Kids last year, and with around 900 under 12s expected this year it is going to be so exciting to see what he does this year.
