Been a while since we posted an update, but please don't think an absence of writing means we have been absent in the Word or planning our next missions outreach. In fact, this very week, our group of 7 men will experience our inaugural mentorship visit to Heritage Academy. This has been an almost 6 month process of listening to God, praying on "what's next," and planning with the administration and ourselves structuring our visits to be purposeful.
So, we are writing this update to let you know the next chapter of Kingdom Here, and to ask for your prayers that His will be done. Also, to pray for each boy in the 3rd grade. There are 6 boys, so we have an opportunity to have quality time with these young children. We have been told that most of the children we will be mentoring have little or no men involvement in their day to day lives. Wow!! Can you imagine?? We have an opportunity to show these children that real men love Jesus, are involved, and invest in the next generation.
We have a great example from our Heavenly Father, who has accepted us with all of our shortcomings...He loves us even though we have done nothing to deserve it. We pray we will be able to show these children unconditional love from our Savior. Also, to raise up a generation of fatherless to be strong men living for Jesus and reverse the trend that is paralyzing not just our community, but our nation. Lastly, please pray specifically for the 3rd grade class at Heritage Academy and for the men who are bringing His word to them.
Looking forward to this next adventure!
