Children and Living Water

Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.

Did you know that children are thirsty for the same Living Water that Jesus offers to all? They experience the same broken world that we as adults do — and they need the hope and love found only in Jesus. By The Hand, a non-profit that operates in Chicago, believes this whole-heartedly — so much so that they hold a Hope For Kids club for more than five hundred children every year. And as they walk through the Gospel each week, they see many of those children give their hearts and lives to Jesus. Bethany, a child who received Christ as her Savior through coming to the club, said, “I gave my life to Jesus because He died on the cross for me, He cares for me, He listens to me when I’m down.” Her relationship with Jesus has changed everything for her. So, let’s be intentional to share with the children in our communities and churches the Gospel, bringing them life, truth, and hope. For more resources, visit our website at
