|e God van het lof, Lob-Gott, Dieu d’éloge, Deus do elogio, Dios de la alabanza, and Dio di elogio—all are ways to say “Praise God” in six languages, and they were all heard at the Collegedale Seventh-day Adventist Church’s recent K.I.D. University. The January event consisted of 38 K.I.D. University attendees from 17 different countries around the globe.
“This was our largest international K.I.D. University training ever with participating church teams ranging from the Virgin Islands to Switzerland,” says Don MacLafferty, K.I.D. ministry director. “We sincerely praise God for His divine presence throughout the entire weekend training.” The multiday intensive international K.I.D. University training event included an opportunity for attendees to observe a Footprints for Kids? small group in action. Elsa Cozzi, Children’s Ministries and Sabbath School director for the Euro-Africa Division, said: “One of the most powerful parts of this K.I.D. U was for leaders from all around the world to enjoy the testimony of the local church children and families from here in Collegedale, Tennessee, and to witness the apparent difference that Jesus has made in each of their lives. Dieu d’éloge (Praise God) for the K.I.D. ministry!”
