The much awaited Dimapur Area Children Conference (DACC) started off on Friday morning at DDSC stadium, with more than a thousand kids from more than fifty churches turning up for the three days event.
The conference has been organized by the King’s Kids South Asia, Guwahati in collaboration with Ebenezer Orphanage, Kids Worship Centre, IMC and All Nation House of Prayer, Shillong. The resource persons are from nine countries including Canada, USA, Germany, Switzerland, Netherland, Nepal, Brasil, Australia and India.
One of the organizers said that the conference was organized with a calling from God and to let the children know Jesus better. He also said that seven workshops have been organized for different age groups on various topics including dancing for the Lord, HIV and AIDS, Biblical world view, Drugs abuse, puberty, hearing God’s voice and forgiveness. “Children are the future of tomorrow so it is important to guide them in the right way so as to have a bright future” he added.
“It doesn’t matter you are 6 or 60 to follow Jesus” said Russell Sanche of King’s Kids International (KKI), Canada, who earlier in the day, spoke to the children on the topic, “Are you ready to follow, to be the new generation?”. With a disarming smile, he said that the Naga children were bit shy in their approach but the interest to know more about Jesus can be seen in their eyes.
Earlier during the inaugural session, DC Dimapur, Moangwati Aier also exhorted the gathering. The speakers for the conference are Babs, Russell and Boyum’s while the workshop leaders include Jane Mackie, Christina Blackwood, Atim Tata, Gill and Ruth Wilson, Eleanor and Graham Mckee Sarahs’ team, Saji Matti, Noell and Sashi and IPHC team.
