March has been a busy month! We have multiple fundraisers all over the country that we are supporting, and Jonathan and Jarrod just got back from a 10 day trip to Costa Rica.
Read on to find out whats been going on (including a VERY EXCITING fundraiser update!)
Thank you and WAY TO GO!
In an effort to support refugee families all over the globe, we teamed up with our Ministry Partners, Vox Dei Community Church, with a goal of raising $6,000 by the end of March. 100% of the money raised is going toward Refuge KC, near downtown KC, and Hellenic Ministries, located in Greece. Both of these ministries are caring for refugees by providing for their physical needs and, most importantly, sharing the gospel with them, starting bible studies, and even planting churches.
Then YOU gave a grand total of exactly $6,000!!!
Whoa! Wow! Wowzers! Shazam! You guys rock! Thank you for your support. This fundraiser is a direct reflection of the heart of our supportive community. We are constantly amazed at how passionately our supporters are about being the hands and feet of Jesus. We are proud of the community we have gathered around us, and humbled at this opportunity to serve faithfully along side you all.
Jonathan and Jarrod traveled to Costa Rica with a team of friends to serve along side our Ministry Partners, Seth & Andrea Sears with giveDIGNITY.
The team of seven included a nurse practitioner (Meredith), a registered nurse (Olivia), and an electrical engineer (Jerry). Their talents were not put to waste. We hosted a two-day medical clinic and served many people with various health issues. Andrea, along with Meredith, hosted a class for local women, education them on sexual activity, diseases, and God's intention when creating sexual beings.
Thanks to Jerry's talents, we were able to get running water, both pressurized and hot, to giveDIGNITY's property. To learn more about the work accomplished, and the hearts touched, on this trip, click below!
We are praying about bringing on new ministry partners, specifically as a sending agency for missionaries looking for a good partnership while growing their ministry field internationally.
Pray for efficiency and effectiveness while supporting Young Life areas around the US with their fundraisers this spring!
We are thankful for our intern, Jarrod, and are praying for monthly supporters for him to continue his work with us.
Shilo & her family will be traveling to Alaska next week! Pray for safe travels.
Praise for a great trip to Costa Rica
Prayer for our Ministry Partners, giveDIGNITy, as half of their family will be traveling stateside to do some college testing. Their two oldest children will both be entering university life in the next two years!
