March 17th team Alpha had an outreach at Red Run Mennonite Church. We had the pleasure of presenting six times along with wearing face paint. Directors Alex and Joseph also spoke explaining the gospel and what it is to us. After the outreach Red Run Mennonite Church invited the team to stay for lunch and fellowship.
On September 28th, team Alpha was able to partner with Carlos and Migdalia, the directors/ founders of God’s Clearview ministries.
For this outreach we were able to use a different set of skills, and bless Carlos and Migdalia by helping them with various work projects around their home and the home of their ministry. The three of the biggest projects we did were:
•Carrying and stacking firewood inside for the winter.
•Harvesting the remaining produce from the garden. As well as clearing it and preparing it to be planted over with grass.
• Switching out some of the summer clothes with winter clothes in the blessing shop (a place where family that are struggling financially can find free clothes).
We aslo did a few other random jobs here and there.
We are thankful for the opportunity this outreach gave us to grow closer as a team through working together, conversations, and laughs. And we pray that God will receive the glory for what was accomplished.
On October 20th-21rst DRAMA ministry’s team alpha had the opportunity to partner with Kingdom Kidz Puppet Ministry. Kingdom kidz is an evangelism oriented ministry and they accomplish that through puppets. It was founded by Donna Bridge in December of 2000 in Milton, PA (where they are still located).
We arrived there and, because we were slightly late, we went on stage almost immediately and presented several mimes. Afterwards they provided us with supper and hosted us overnight there as well.
The next morning we presented a few more mimes for several of the kingdom kidz staff and also did a mime workshop with them. During the workshop we taught them some technique and one of our one man mimes.
Saturday afternoon we went to a local Apple Butter Festival. There we had the really awesome opportunity to present along side kingdom kidz.
During the weekend we spent there one thing that really encouraged and grew me was the amazing unity we had with the staff at kingdom kidz. Even though DRAMA and Kingdom Kidz have to completely different ministries we both have Christ as our main focus and that’s all we need to be unified.
This opportunity we had to partner with kingdom kidz was an amazing experience for Alpha. And we hope that this new relationship between these two ministries will continue.
To God be the glory!
On Saturday, September 30th DRAMA’s team Alpha went to God’s Clear View Ministries. This outreach was an all day work day and God blessed us with a nice day for it.
We meet around 6:30am and headed out.
When we arrived Carlos and Migdalia (the directors of the ministry) took us on a short tour of the building and showed us some recent renovations as well as some rooms that still need a lot of work but have come a long way since they acquired the building.
After the tour we split up into groups to accomplish the work they had for us to do. Three of us were inside changing out summer clothes with winter clothes in the Blessing Shop ( a place where people can get free clothes), washing down the trim, and mopping.
The rest of us were working outside mulching, cleaning up some trash and siding, planting flowers, and filling a hole in the blacktop with gravel.
Migdalia made an amazing lunch for us and they also provided breakfast food and drink us.
We had a really great day and were thankful for the opportunity we had to serve Carlos and Migdalia.
To God be the Glory!
