In Haitian Creole, at the top of their lungs and with deep passion, the children at our school in Tom Gateau, Haiti, began to recite Psalm 23. “The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for His name’s sake. I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff they comfort me. You prepare a table for me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely Your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

Yes, the children spoke each word of the entire chapter of Psalm 23 from memory. The sound was powerful; the purpose was life-changing as these kids became captivated by God’s Word in their lives.

The power of placing God’s Word in the hands of the children of New Missions is like giving a sword to a warrior about to face their enemy.  Psalm 119:11 says, “I have hidden Your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You.” For our children to live the good life and stand up against evil, His Word must be planted in their hearts.
