This was our best year ever and all glory to God! Goals were accomplished, lives were changed, and lessons were learned. Let me share more.
We increased from serving 3 schools, to 4. We increased from serving 160 students, to 190. We increased from 20 weekly volunteers, to 40. We increased from 33 ministry partners, to 40. We were able to serve more and with so many of you this year! Glory to God.
Lessons we learned?
1) As we began expanding into new schools we learned that Austin has enormous afterschool needs and the demand is even greater than what we ever expected.
2) The closure and relocation of the T.A. Brown Elementary campus taught us that God provides in unexpected ways. We are truly blessed to have the support of strong ministry partners to serve alongside.
3) It is better to give then it is to receive. Some of our favorite memories this year include serving alongside our families and giving back to other nonprofits in the community.
As we look ahead to 2017 we are dreaming big and trusting God to open 1 new school (serving 30 students, needing 3-6 new teachers, 4-8 volunteers, and $40,000 to open). Will you join us in prayer for that and help us finish the year-end strong by donating now? Remember that all your gifts are tax deductible. We believe God has big things in store for us and for you in 2017!
Glory to God,
