Speaker: Ruth Hawkey
We don’t always know how to minister to children.
Teaching on this CD will be helpful to parents, teachers and all those who work with children in the caring profession.
Drawing on her many experiences as a classroom teacher, Ruth explains how children can be damaged in various ways and show disturbances in recurring patterns of behaviour.
Understanding the reasons for the damage is the key to helping them.
Ruth offers many practical suggestions for how to pray for children and explains how to minister effectively in ways that are especially appropriate for children.
(Recorded at ‘Equipped for a Purpose’ Conference Nov 1997.)
The vision for Ellel Ministries was to be a place where people can receive ministry and be trained to help others. However, organisations such as Ellel Ministries can’t possibly meet all the needs. The demand for personal ministry is overwhelming.
Many churches want to help but they don’t know how. Others don’t have enough people in their congregations who are properly equipped. For this reason the conference ‘Equipped for a Purpose’ was held. It was planned to help the Church with the task of equipping its people to fulfil the Great Commission to preach the good news of the Kingdom and heal the sick.
Why is healing so important to the Body of Christ? In reality we all need healing from the consequences of living in a fallen world, but we are not just referring to healing from the obvious symptoms of sickness and disease –important though that is.
Paul prayed that we might be whole in spirit, soul and body (1 Thessalonians 5:23) and the process of walking towards healing brings reality and encourages us to grow in maturity as strong disciples of Jesus.
