Mighty Sound Kids has launched a new Scripture Memory Verse Project to provide additional FREE resources for parents and teachers and we are creating videos for each verse. We will post them in the parent-teacher resources tab on our website as well as on our YouTube channel.
We salute the wonderful children and families of Egypt, knowing that Jesus is Lord over that nation. Mighty Sound Kids is delighted to play a small part in that Egypt is one of the top ten countries viewing the Mighty Sound Kids videos on YouTube. In fact, the videos have been viewed over 27,000 minutes in Egypt as of today.
Seeing all this activity caused us to look further into Christianity in Egypt. It is a minority religion in Egypt and nearly all are Copts, followers of the Coptic Orthodox Church. According to Open Doors there is increased persecution of Christians in Egypt and yet there is a small but growing community of Christian converts (Muslim Background Believers, MBBs), who bear the brunt of persecution, most often from family members. Believers are often kicked out of their homes when their Muslim families find out about their faith.
Nonetheless, Jesus is Lord over Egypt 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 Egypt! May His Love rule and reign.
I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.”
Psalm 77:11-12 (NIV)
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.
As of today, January 8, 2017:
Mighty Sound Kids videos have been viewed over 400,000 times.
We are thankful and grateful to God for our followers that help us in this outreach effort. The momentum continues and, looking back, we have doubled our viewership since October 29, 2016 when achieved 200,000 YouTube views.
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 huge persecution. Learn more here
the top ten countries viewing mighty sound kids videos include vietnam, Philippines, Kazakhstan, Georgia, belarus, thailand, cambodia, Egypt, ukraine and Armenia. All praise and glory be to our Lord and King, Jesus. He is the Wonder of Wonderful.
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 June of 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 completed producing the last video, Sunshine and Rainbows on December 14, 2016. 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.
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.

We salute the wonderful children and families of Belarus, knowing that Jesus is Lord over that nation. Mighty Sound Kids is delighted to play a small part in that Belarus is one of the top ten countries viewing the Mighty Sound Kids videos on YouTube. In fact, the videos have been viewed over 12,800 times in Belarus as of today.
Seeing all this activity caused us to look further into Christianity in Belarus. Amazingly the evangelical Christians account for less than one percent of the population. There is persecution of Christians in Belarus according to articles we have discovered. Belarus experienced revival during the 1990s, but in 2002 the government imposed new restrictions on religion even though the constitution protects freedom of religion. The restrictions include requiring churches to register, an attempt to hinder their growth. Even registered churches must constantly renew permission to meet.
Nonetheless, Jesus is Lord over Belarus 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 Belarus! May His Love rule and reign.
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.
We are thankful and grateful for our Facebook, Twitter and website followers and we want you to have the FIRST LOOK. We’ve completed the first video from the new album, God Loves You, and want our loyal followers to be the first to see the video before the official release date, November 24, 2016. The song is HOLY TRINITY, and it makes a perfect introduction to teaching children about the Trinity. The song is also a prayer in that we incorporate elements of the Lord’s Prayer and personalize it, “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done–in me, and through me.” We hope you enjoy the song and video and we welcome your comments.
