Greetings in the name of our Lord Savior Jesus Christ,Our annual report for Kids for Christ NJ 2013 is as follows:
This year 2013 the KFC team started the planning very prayerfully and therefore we saw God’s
hand on this blessed event. I asked the Lord to show a promise which I can claim throughout.
God gave 2 promises: Isaiah 58:11 and Romans 16:20
1. Isaiah 58:11
And the lord shall guide thee continually and satisfy thy soul in drought and make fat thy bones and then shalt be like a watered garden and like a spring of water whose waters fail not.
2. Romans 16:20:-And the God of peace shall bruise satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you .Amen.
At KFC this year, we had two guest preachers. One speaker was Rev John Paul Reddy Pogu of Hyderabad, who had given the special note for kids and parents and handed over the KFC-2013 Champion trophies. The next guest speaker was Pastor Chandra Rudrapathi, who was also one of the local pastors. He shared greetings on the vision of KFC and asked parents to continue to support this mission.
Also, a big thank you to all judges, especially the 2 judges who came from Chicago, Mrs. Rachel Dwaram and Mrs.JeevaGorre.
Also, thank you to all teachers, moderators, managers, judges, participants, and families who travelled from NY, Maryland, Delaware, Philadelphia, and Connecticut. It is with great pleasure that we worked among children as a team.

We were able to see God 's name glorified throughout this entire program God’s hand mightily worked and inspired nearly 50 coordinators to come together to work as team to make this program a grand success.
Our KFC team and families want to demonstrate that “Today’s Sunday school is tomorrow's church” and our KFC children are already proving this. The KFC community is reminded of this verse from Matthew 18:10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
