MAKK Impact

Mission Adventure for Kentucky Kids is a three-day mission trip for children in grades 4-6 and their leaders. During MAKK we have Bible study, crafts, games, drama, and music. A missionary shares their work at each location.

I was able to join in the MAKK experience this year in Lexington. In our closing session, participants were asked to write on Post-It Notes things that they were thankful for. The notes show the impact of MAKK on the children and adults who participated. Here are some of the things they shared:

  • Kids with big hearts
  • All of the friends I made
  • Meeting all the people and getting to go to the rest home
  • Being able to fill sack lunches for the homeless
  • For the Lexington Rescue Mission
  • I am thankful for the kids learning how to show God’s love to others. And for meeting new people that we helped
  • For nursing homes
  • For the many volunteers to help share Christ with kids
  • Telling people about Jesus at the nursing home
  • Helping seniors
  • Two salvations!
  • Getting to see joyful faces on the people at the nursing home
  • I got to go on mission and serve others in God’s Name
  • That we helped tell people about Jesus at the nursing home
  • For all the ministries we got to experience this weekend
  • Chance to serve Miss Shirley at the nursing home and pray with her. We said John 3:16 together.
  • Being saved by Jesus!
  • The way we worked to show God’s love to others. Very rewarding.
  • I’m thankful we got to go to Mission Lexington and help the people
  • Baking for Ronald McDonald House
  • Serving the Lord with other Christians. Meeting new people
  • I enjoyed loving on the patients at the nursing home
  • Talking and working with the nursing home patients
  • For making new friends and baking
  • That we got to help clean
  • Lots of fun
  • A great week

The thankful note that made me smile the most said “We got to conquer the world!!” Sending children and adults out to prayerwalk on Thursday (in the rain!), serve in area ministries on Friday, and have Bible School nursing homes on Saturday might not seem like conquering the world to some, but I understand what this child meant. Through MAKK, children conquered fears of new places and people. They conquered fears that they were asked to do a ministry they had never done before. And we know that whenever we go in the Name of Jesus, Satan is conquered. Yes, to the child on the Green team who wrote the note, we conquered the world in Jesus Name.
