How did Nehemiah do it?
In Nehemiah 1-2:8 we read how Nehemiah was charged with rebuilding the wall around the city of Jerusalem. For years before him Haggaii and Zechariah struggled to get the Temple of God rebuilt. After them came Ezra, who's primary responsibility was to restore order in the city through the re-establishment of the worship of God in His Temple.
Nehemiah's mission was an important one, as the wall surrounding the city would protect the people, and most important, their ability to worship God in a safe manner. But just because God told Nehemiah to do it, did not mean Nehemiah could do it on his own.
He needed help.
Like his predecessors, God provided powerful and wealthy men to assist him in this task; the most important of which was King Artaxerxes. Through Nehemiah's relationship with the king he was able to have letters written and sent ahead of him to provide the resources they would need to build the wall.
Nehemiah accomplished his mission of rebuilding the wall of Jerusalem, but with the help of the wealthy and influential, as well as the local everyday day hard working man and woman.
KidTrek has a specific mission, but it cannot accomplish its goal without men and women, like yourself, willing to partner with us.
KidTrek is looking for the kings and queens of this land who will give generously of their resources.
KidTrek is also looking for the "bricklayers," men and women who will not only give of their personal finances, but will also be a part of "building the city" hands on.
Different people will have different roles.
While there were hundreds, if not thousands, of people who helped on the front lines, there were also plenty of people, like King Artaxerxes, who never once visited Jerusalem, yet played just as vital a role in the city being rebuilt as those who laid the bricks.
ARE YOU A KING...A QUEEN...OR A BRICKLAYER?
Whichever you may be, we welcome your participation in this Walk.
