Helogeen Helps Hurting Children in Jamaica

God has given me an immense passion for children. It all started a few years ago when I began attending Miracle Open Bible Church. I joined choir, but it didn’t take long until I was branching into other ministries of the church. It wasn’t until I began volunteering for children’s church that I realized God’s calling on my life. I was certain that working with children was my life’s work!

Since then, I have earned a degree in Child and Adolescent Development and am now studying at Caribbean Graduate School of Theology (CGST) for my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology. I am sincerely appreciative for CGST expanding my horizons and teaching me so much thus far in my studies. I am grateful to God for providing for my financial needs, even when it seems I won’t have enough funds to meet my school expenses. He’s in control of my future, and I know He will be faithful to complete this work in me!

In addition to my studies, I am president of the Children’s Church Ministry at Miracle Open Bible Church and truly enjoy ministering to all my kids. I love teaching them from the Word and showing them how to apply it to their own lives. I use fun and creative ways like songs, dance and dramas to reinforce what they’re learning in our Bible studies. When I look around, I see such an incredible need in our region to love and support our children. There are so many little ones hurting. We simply can’t turn a blind eye to them. They’re our future, and we must help lead them to the Savior.

Because children are the foundation for the future of God’s Kingdom, it’s imperative we impart the knowledge of God to them. It’s now in these formative years that we have the privilege to train them to be powerful little evangelists, intercessors and worshipers. I’ve witnessed the Holy Spirit changing some of these children as they have come to know Jesus through Children’s Church. I am blessed beyond measure to be working for the Lord in this capacity. I look forward to His continued blessing as I finish my studies and grow this children’s ministry.
