King's Kids

Children, youth and families knowing God, bringing Him joy and making Him and His kingdom known

King’s Kids at YWAM Arusha began informally in 2002 when students who were part of the PCYM (Children & Youth Ministries) school but couldn’t afford the fees needed for outreach called two boys who were walking by and started to play with them. Afterward they sat down with the boys and talked to them about God. They asked these boys to tell other children about the time they had spent together and to invite them to the base. In the period that followed, they came with others and the students played with all of them and shared the gospel with them.
King’s Kids began officially in 2003.

Happiness, who is the head of this ministry, says she is most encouraged when she people tell her how the ministry has transformed their lives. She has learned patience, how to show love and encourages parents and teachers to understand their children and speak to them truthfully. Children are very important before God and God has a good plan for them even when their backgrounds may be poor. Children are important and God can use them to minister to others. King’s Kids at YWAM Arusha takes in children from all religions.
