Thanks to all of you who supported the youth with donations and prayers for their mission trip to New Orleans. It was a different kind of mission for our youth. They worked with the “Excite All Stars,” a kid’s camp that was started by a pastor and his wife following Hurricane Katrina. Kid’s from all economic backgrounds with all kinds of needs come together to play and learn. Each day begins with a Vacation Bible School experience. The afternoon is filled with games, dance, empowerment opportunities and sports. Our kids helped in all of these areas and formed relationships with the kids they served. You can google “Excite All Stars” to learn more about this ministry. We came away with ideas of how we can serve in our community.
Earlier this year, we applied to the Moody Foundation for a grant to help with the salary of a Community Outreach Director. I just received notice that we were awarded $20,000!!!
Now that’s something to celebrate!!!! Lisa
