The goal of Lion & Lamb Karate Kids, LLC and the Heion Shin Budo Ryu is to provide a Christ-centered, family-friendly environment where people can come to learn and study martial arts as well as be encouraged in their Christian walk. It is our hope that we can be an avenue of service for our local community and surrounding area as well as an avenue of support for foreign missions, especially those in Asia.
Over the last few years our school has raised over $14,000 by sponsoring board breaking events and other activities. We were able to do this because of God’s grace and the WONDERFUL generosity of local businesses and individuals in Big Stone Gap as well as the surrounding towns and communities. Approximately $8,000 of this money went to St. Jude Children’s Hospital in Knoxville, TN and the rest was used to help families with medical and other needs in the local community.
These events turned out to be great opportunities for teaching and learning about the importance of being willing to give of ourselves in order to help others, especially those in great need.
In Romans 19:15 we are told the following, "How can they go and preach the Gospel unless they be sent, and how can they hear unless the word is preached unto them." It is our hope and our purpose to support the message of the Gospel and of those who boldly go forth to proclaim the Good News, both through missions and local ministry, whenever and wherever possible.
