FUNDRAISING... May is always a very busy month with multiple fundraisers and figuring out summer plans and this May was no different. On May 16 we had a combo golf tournament and silent auction for Blue Valley and Olathe Young Life. This daylong event brought in $15,000 for Blue Valley and around $9,000 for Olathe. We have also been working with the Olathe Young Life Committee to put together a strategic fundraising plan to bring on a new staff person in the next few months. Over the past few months we have been working on setting up an expense account for our long time ministry partners in Costa Rica, Seth and Andrea Sears. For years they have had to use their personal funds to pay for ministry expenses but now through us they will have the ability to be reimbursed for their ministry expenses. Lastly, we spent the month of May editing and making six different video documentaries for the Church of the Resurrection (a large church in KC). You can view all of these videos on the Perception Funding web site.
THE LISTEN PROJECT... We are now coordinating volunteers in Hope Faith Ministries kitchen. On the fourth Friday of every month we will take volunteers to serve 500 meals from 8am - 11am. Please join us as we serve the poor and oppressed in our own city. You can let us know if you want to attend by emailing us at email@example.com
DISASTER RESPONSE... Joplin Recovery Project In the wake of the tornado devastation in Joplin, Mo, we are now sending and coordinating teams to help with clean up as well as sorting and distribution of donated items. The purpose of our trips is to find families that we can invest in, go deep with and really help rebuild their lives. Currently, we are partnering with Vox Dei Community (a church in south east KC) and we hope to find other churches with a similar vision. Please let us know if you are interested in serving in Joplin. Our hope is to have one and/or two day trips every week. firstname.lastname@example.org
Haiti Project Join us in continued prayer as we work with the Global Orphan Project to decide what out next step will be in Haiti.
Peace to You, Jonathan Klee
