…CHRISTMAS, FRIENDS!!!

It’s been a big year:
“Worship in the Park” each week for the homeless community // multi-church worship gatherings // reconciliation + church unity // tour dates across the state // encouraging emails:

“You probably don’t remember me at all but You had a huge affect on my spiritual life. You were the worship band at Sugarpine Christian Camp  when I was in High school and then again when I was a counselor at a youth camp.  You were always such a great influence on the campers.”

“I just wanted to let you know the first time I heard your song I CRIED LIKE A BIG FAT BABY. WE LOVE YOU BROTHER!”

At-Risk Teen mentoring at two public schools + curriculum rewrite + 50 mentors trained + over 100 students impacted // 1,000 backpacks of food donated for county’s homeless students // more emails:

“My experience yesterday was one of the most spirit-filled occurrences I’ve ever had besides my mission trip to Africa.”

“I feel so special that I was chosen to be in this group!”

MIKA’s Youth Action Team cordinator (leadership development) // OCforOC (One Church for Our City) Lead Team // Talbot Seminary scholarship recipient: Spiritual Formation // still more emails:

“We did not have anyone to help us. …All that has happened on Baker St. has given me new life. I feel good and important being a leader. I feel proud of my community.”

We are truly grateful beyond words for your friendship and support.  As you can see, we’ve stepped even deeper into a missionary journey of faith, risk, and dependence this year, and we are excited for what God has in store next.  We treasure your partnership!

Thanks again and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
