The response has been overwhelming from the King's Kids on how Christian's story has impacted them in some way, but what about the staff (a.k.a. Guides)? How have our Guides been affected by this story? I set to find out...and here's the response I received from 3 of our Guides.
"After I first read the book, and as I read it now to the children, it makes me think about how many of the characters I can personally relate to. Especially when I think about my days when I was deep into my addiction and how much my personality and excuses for not changing were like the negative characters. I haven't reached my destination, but like Christian, I'm on the right path. A personal thanks for guiding me to the book." -A Boys' Guide
"Little Pilgrim's Progress has encouraged me to continue being obedient. Trust God's Word and to 'press on' when things get tough while on this journey! It didn't take long for me to catch on to the message. Christian's journey reflects life as many are familiar with today: the distractions, temptations, even crossroads. I thank God for the seed that has been planted in our King's Kids through Christian's journey. It has been rewarding to watch them thirsting for more! It's an honor to nourish and watch each seed produce the King's divine fruit." -A Boys' Guide
"I received several gold nuggets from Christian's journey that helped me understand past dreams that I had never understood. One dream I once dreamed was of two lions chasing my daughter and I and the two of us were running fast. There was a black limo and the two of us ran and jumped into this black limo at the same time and shut the doors on the two lions and drove off, leaving the two lions. In Christian's journey, the movie stated that the lions were there in Christian's path to test his faith. What a test for me! Thanks, God, for revealing that to me." -A K-2nd Grade Guide
