Spring fundraising preparations have begun! We currently have three big golf tournaments coming together and a half marathon. We are very excited about the Olathe Young Life golf tournament. The Heckler Open Golf Tournament will be on Friday, May 29, and it won't be like any other golf tournament in which you've competed! Sure, there will be foursome's competing on a beautiful golf course, awards for closest to the pin, and great food. But around every corner, there will be someone waiting to heckle and harass you - yelling your name in your back swing and hollering nonsense when you're on the putting green. We are also in out third year of working with Littleton Young Life (Colorado) to help raise funds to send kids to camp. On April 7, 21 volunteers (and we're adding more daily) will be running the Platte River Half Marathon and Relay in support of Littleton Young Life. Funds raised will go directly towards lowering the cost of summer camp for kids. Check out how this fundraiser works - littleton.givetransform.org We love helping different Young Life areas not only because they do a great job sharing the gospel with middle school and high school kids, but because their staff and volunteers love these kids regardless of their responses and pour into them no matter where they are in life.
Needs & Praises
One of our Ministry Partners, Living Missions Peru, has several large missions trips over spring break this month. One of them has 135 people signed up, their largest group yet! Please pray for logistics, safety and a powerful impact on the lives of the Peruvian people and the folks on the missions trip.
Our ministry continues to grow! Praise God that we have already raised over $150,000 so far this year for our ministry partners. These ministries are becoming sustainable and are able to meet the needs of people around them.
