Training and Equipping
The Fountain of Love Department of the New Life
Foundation is what is done outside the four walls of
their schools and vocational training centers. It
encompasses all of the children's workers training,
conferences, seminars, workshops, and ministry in
the area churches. The Shoos also minister in other
nations on behalf of New Life Foundation. The
Fountain of Love department also includes the
various types of outreach to the children of Africa.
Glorious and Josephine are the teachers of choice
of such organizations as Compassion International
and World Vision to train their employees to work
with children. Many times those workers are not
born again when they begin the classes. So the
Shoos have had the privilege of leading many of
them to the Lord in the classes.
The Shoos have trained over4,000 workers for
Compassion in various types of seminars. Only
about 1,000 have actually received certificates of
training in children's ministry, where as the others
attended different types of training classes. They
host teams of children's ministers in from other
countries such as the USA to help conduct training
conferences across denominational lines in their
Ministry to Street Children
And Open Air Meetings
Unlike many other countries we have the freedom to
share the message of hope to the students in
schools and in streets about the saving love of
Christ. It is very easy to gather a crowd of children in
Africa by simply showing up in the streets with
puppets or animal costumes. When a crowd
gathers, we sing songs with them, and tell them
about the love of Jesus.
Normally over 90% of the crowd will respond to the
salvation message. We always work with a local
church who can then begin the task of discipling the
children and bring them into a loving church family.
Also we are sharing on truth about AIDS to the
children in the public schools. We have an excellent
program that explains to children on their level.
Many times we will work with medical teams on this
project. At the end of our program, we share the
message of hope about Jesus with the students,
which is still a freedom we have in the public
schools of our country.
