'Magical' ministry
Font Size

During a “Day Camp Finale” in Nashua, N.H., Envoys Douglas and Helene Kornwolf, territorial evangelists, used “magic tricks” to show kids that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is no illusion. The Kornwolfs led as many as 20 kids to first–time decisions for Jesus. After dramatically illustrating the Gospel with their performance, the Kornwolfs invited parents to support the newly saved children. At the finale program, five parents received Christ.

The event culminated an eight–week program for school–aged kids. Staffed by college students and Learning Zone graduate volunteers, the program instructed children in gardening, the arts, environmental stewardship, the “Three Rs,” and fun.
