We are so happy to report that all is well in New Orleans and we are reopening Summer Bible Camp today. The missions team that was supposed to join us had to cancel in consideration of the storm that hit Louisiana. We are excited because we are calling on our own JSTEP team to lead. This week will be a great test of how well we have trained them. We know they are going to rise to reach our expectations.
We are busy and behind in planning for our annual Back 2 School outreach and we truly need your help. Thank you so much for your help last year. Because of your generosity in 2018, over 350 children started the year with the school supplies they needed. We are planning for the same number of children this year. With your help, the first day of school will be more hopeful and less stressful than ever before.
As of today, we have received contributions to support 100 children. This is a blessing and we are tremendously grateful. That leaves us with 250 children still in need. We hope that you might be able to help us reach the same number of children again this year as we did last year. The Back 2 School Outreach is scheduled for August 1st. It only takes $15 to help a child get the supplies they need. Every single dollar will bring us one step closer to our goal this year!
Thank you again for all of your support. We are so blessed to be able to help the families and children from Hollygrove start the school year with the essentials they need to be successful.
