So Many Blessings

November was a fun and busy month. I was able to get away for my long anticipated 2.5 week vacation to Peru while my wonderful team held it down for me. What a blessed trip it was to see God's people and creation in a totally different part of the world!

Ministry has continued with City Life club, our drop in center, and through specialty groups/events. We have been so blessed to have so many new students attending and we even have a teen couple who attend weekly with their twin baby girls. Our group of students and leaders each week love holding, feeding, and helping with the girls. They have rapidly become a part of our family!

We also had a movie night, Work Source visited and spoke to our students about the resources they offer, and we had our Annual Thanksgiving Turkey Bowl event! 

Many of our students do not have positive memories around the holidays, so we try to create events that help them to feel loved and create special memories. On Wednesday, November 24th, all our sites gathered at Camp Sambica in Bellevue for this fun event. We played soccer and football, heard a Bible lesson about what it means to be grateful in all things, and enjoyed some amazing food donated by Ezell's Chicken! All in all, the sentiment of this month truly has been gratitude to God for all he has blessed us with!


  • Consuelo, our newest intern, got her driver's license!
  • We have had new students coming each month!
  • God provided financially for our Turkey Bowl event, for us to be able to help more families with rental assistance, and we exceeded our Winter Camp fundraising goal on Giving Tuesday!


  • Pray for the mental health of all our youth. Depression and anger have been a plague for them.
  • Pray against the violence in our area. We hear about weekly fights that go on in our schools and community and there have been shooting threats towards 3 of our schools. 
  • Pray for our students to have a hunger to know Jesus!
