We salute the wonderful children and families of Georgia, knowing that Jesus is Lord over that nation. Mighty Sound Kids is delighted to play a small part in that Georgia is one of the top ten countries viewing the Mighty Sound Kids videos on YouTube. In fact, the videos have been viewed for over 30,000 minutes in Georgia as of today.
Seeing all this activity caused us to look further into Christianity in Georgia. It appears that 82% of the population in Georgia practices Orthodox Christianity, primarily the Georgian Orthodox Church. Of these, around 2% follow the Russian Orthodox Church, around 5.9% (almost all of whom are ethnic Armenians) follow the Armenian Apostolic Church and 0.8% are Roman Catholics and are mainly found in the south of Georgia but with a small number in its capital, Tbilisi.
Nonetheless, Jesus is Lord over Georgia and God is in control. Pray for this country and its people that they may be blessed with the freedom that only Jesus can bring them. More Lord for Georgia! May His Love rule and reign.
We’re amazed and excited to announce that the views of Mighty Sound Kids videos continue to increase at an incredible rate. Thank you to all our friends and followers for your support of the Mighty Sound Kids mission.
As of today, January 21, 2017:
MIGHTY SOUND KIDS VIDEOS HAVE BEEN VIEWED OVER 500,000 TIMES ON YOUTUBE.
The mission of Mighty Sound Kids is a ministry dedicated to getting resources into the hands of children, families, and ministries throughout the world—FREE of charge. YouTube has provided a way for us to reach beyond borders and that is very important to us.
We are thankful and grateful to God for our followers that help us in this outreach effort. The momentum continues and, looking back, this is the second milestone in January as we reached 400,000 views on January 8, 2017, adding another 100K in just the past two weeks.
While we have seen the number of viewers snowball, the best part of this testimony is WHERE the videos are being viewed. The leading country for views is NOT the United States…it is Vietnam. In Vietnam, the Christians still face persecution. Learn more here
The top ten countries view Mighty Sound Kids videos include:
All praise and glory be to our Lord and King, Jesus. He is the Wonder of Wonderful.
Jerry Lenz reflects on the growth of Mighty Sound Kids
This is a ministry directed project and not a business endeavor. Sales of physical CDs and downloads are sparse to put it kindly and I am reminded daily that Kingdom building and marketing schemes most often run along different paths. The Lord has blessed me with the ability to grow my radio entertainment marketing and that extra income fuels my passion for Mighty Sound Kids to reach children and families all over the globe.
It is amazing to watch daily where this ministry is reaching—countries I’ve never even heard of. In fact, I had to look up the Northern Mariana Islands today. Each time I discover a new country I read about the people and culture and give thanks to God for this journey.
YouTube is the engine of discovery for the Mighty Sound Kids songs and several people each day will link from a MSK video to the MSK website which was launched in May of this year. Facebook was added about the same time and the MSK Facebook page has over 500 followers, most in Vietnam and the Philippines.
In the case of Facebook I can see the young mothers’ photos and their families. Further I am amazed at the number of Muslim mothers (they proclaim their faith on their Facebook page) that like and follow Mighty Sound Kids. For me, I see the Spirit of God moving on hearts and families and that is something you cannot quantify on a business report.
The five new songs have brought in new audiences too in some amazing places. Iraq is moving up fast at a time of persecution for Christians in that country. At the bottom of this article is a report from today of YouTube activity for all Mighty Sound Kids videos by location.
In summary, I am thankful to God for reawakening this music ministry in 2016. From a humble start as a Sunday school teacher 30 years ago, at The Church On The Way, I am reminded of my first project or vision for Christian children’s music. It was called Four Heavensakes & Friends (characters singing the songs). Well, today, it is the same heart behind Mighty Sound Kids. When I wrote out the original vision, the essence was, “Music and Ministry for a Multitude.” I am eternally grateful for each new family touched by the music and my prayer is that children receive Jesus as their Savior, are filled with the Holy Spirit and begin ministering the Love of God to others.

Take a moment to think about the shepherds tending their flocks in the field when God suddenly chooses them to announce His greatest gift to humanity, His Son Jesus. These are hard-working everyday men, hand-picked by God to witness the birth of His Son. Regular guys, not priests in the Temple, that were selected to have a role in God’s gift to mankind.
Although the Bible does not give us any details about their lives after being visited by Angels and instructed to travel to Bethlehem to witness the birth of Christ, it is safe to say that their lives were forever changed from ordinary to extraordinary. Think about their return home to their families, sharing testimony of their experience and the miracles they lived and witnessed.
Let us all be open to God using our ordinary lives for His extraordinary purposes. Let’s show our children more this Christmas season than a simple retelling of The Christmas Story, and key in on the ordinary people mentioned to further encourage our children to be open to all that God desires to do in them and through them. Merry Christmas!
One year ago we released the first Mighty Sound Kids video on YouTube, Jump for Jesus. We continued releasing videos from the first Mighty Sound Kids album as we completed them over a few months. Slowly, but surely, they started to catch on, reaching 1,000 views in 2016. We decided it was time to release more songs and produced the album, God Loves You.
The new album was released in November 2016 and we just completed producing the last video, Sunshine and Rainbows. The new album contains 5 new tracks and 5 performance tracks so kids can sing in their own voice. We encourage them to record the songs and make their own videos. We will even post them on our website, if you send them to us.

With great thanksgiving and joy, we salute and celebrate that Jesus is Lord over Thailand. We are excited to share that the people of Thailand have viewed the Mighty Sound Kids videos over 11,000 times. We are grateful that all viewers are helping us achieve our mission of supplying free children’s ministry resources to parents, teachers and children’s pastors. God bless you for helping fuel this fire of LOVE and passion for our Lord and King, Jesus!
Each of the new songs on Mighty Sound Kids’ God Loves You album includes a performance track. The purpose is so that once your children learn the song, they can perform it in their own voice. We welcome and encourage you to make a video of your children performing the song. Plus, if you send us a copy, we will post it on the Mighty Sound Kids’ website.
A resource for teaching children Jesus’ Hebrew name—Yeshua. The Mighty Sound Kids project has over two decades of developing children’s songs for learning and growing in faith. Kid-tested and approved, children quickly sing along at home and in church. Learn more about the Mighty Sound Kids on Facebook and our website: https://mightysoundkids.com/
We also produce performance tracks for all the songs on God Loves You for your children to learn and perform the songs—even make their own videos. We will share YOUR videos of your children singing our songs and post them on our website for others to see and enjoy.
