Special guest, Elaine Baillie, and her husband, Ray, have been married for 44 years and have 3 married daughters and 5 grandchildren. They have pastored throughout Alberta and are presently pastoring New Destiny Church in the urban center of Edmonton. Ordained in 2010, Elaine holds her license with the Ministers Network of Canada. Her love for children and youth is what led Elaine to work as an Educational Assistant at Fort Saskatchewan Christian School, beginning in 2004
In 2015, Elaine took on the full-time role of Chaplain at her school. She joyfully filled that role until her retirement in 2020. Teaching and equipping children to hear the voice of God has been, and continues to be, the highlight of Elaine's ministry.
Gordon and Adam welcome Elaine to the KidZ at Heart podcast to share some incredible stories from her time with the "New Generation Prayer Team," a special group of kids who learned to listen to God through prayer and respond with awe-inspiring courage and boldness. This group of children embodied Daniel 11:32, which says, "...the people who know their God shall prove themselves strong and shall stand firm and do exploits (for God)."
Elaine's book, "Youth Called to Make a Difference," is the retelling of the exploits of a dedicated group of children who dared to believe that God was (and is) speaking to us and calling us to action. All we need to do is slow down and learn to listen.

We're excited to share Elaine's stories with you in this podcast episode. We hope they will inspire you, too, as you continue to invite your children to draw closer to God's heart and listen for that still, small voice of love.
