Amanda is a member at one of our Jesus Clubs in Sydney. She is 21, non-verbal and has an intellectual disability. Her parents brought her along to a Jesus Club after hearing about the ministry from a family friend who has an adult child going to Jesus Club.

Amanda was quiet and reserved at first, but after only a few weeks, she started to blossom and open up at Jesus Club. Amanda began to dance and sing in her own way and started to form genuine relationships with the leaders and members there.

When she had been coming for a couple of months. Her parents approached us and asked, ‘You all do this as volunteers?’ They were amazed that someone would willingly give up their free time to spend with their daughter. You see, since leaving high school, Amanda has had no friends. Besides her family and other people like occupational therapists or support workers, who were paid to spend time with her, there was no one who willingly volunteered in her life, not one... except for the leaders at Jesus Club.

"... in the love and care provided for their daughter,
they are seeing the gospel demonstrated"

If the parents saw Jesus Club as an incredible opportunity for their daughter to be genuinely cared for and loved, we saw it as an even greater opportunity for evangelism. Because of Jesus Club, this family, who has never been inside a church in their entire life, now gladly brings their adult daughter every fortnight. Not only are they hearing the gospel in words, but in the love and care provided for their daughter, they are seeing the gospel demonstrated! Jesus Club provides incredible opportunities for evangelism, not only for the members, but also for their carers and their families.

Give thanks with us that the gospel is God's good news for all people. Pray that God will use Jesus Club to bring blessings to all our members and families.
