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.
Dear Friends & Families of DRAMA,
Come and see how God is working in DRAMA Ministry! Our annual Friends & Family Presentation will be held at Blue Ball Church of the Brethren (1005 E Main St, Blue Ball, PA 17506) on Thursday, November 8th at 7:00 pm. You will see each of the teams present several mimes as well as hear members share testimonies of what they have been learning this session. There will be a time of refreshments and fellowship after the presentation.
We would love to see you there!
We have been busy preparing for our 17-Year Anniversary Banquet next week! We look forward to a time of fellowship with DRAMA friends and families, hearing testimonies from those who have been impacted by the ministry, and (of course!) seeing the teams present some mimes.
For those of you who will be attending, we would like to let you know that there will also be a small silent auction during the banquet. Several hand-painted wooden signs will be available to bid on throughout the evening. So please come out on Wednesday evening with this in mind! There will also be DRAMA coffee mugs and t-shirts for sale.
We look forward to seeing you all next week as we celebrate God’s amazing grace and faithfulness over the past 17 years!
Spread the word – it’s nearly time to have your RSVP in for DRAMA’s annual fundraising banquet. The deadline for sign-up is April 4th. All the details are on our sign-up page here:
This is a great event to hear about what DRAMA is all about, how God has been at work this last year and to support Christ-centered discipleship of young people in Lancaster County, nationally and even internationally. See you there!
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!
I’ve put a few posts up on Facebook, but for the rest of our friends who don’t follow along that way, it seemed like about time for an update. Plus I’ll post more description here.
Our team safely arrived in Dharan, Nepal after quite the long journey and has begun to minister to EC Nepal churches that are gathering for their national conference. It’s certainly an interesting element for us to have our “team” include the heads of the EC Church in Nepal, India, Japan and the US.
Yesterday the conference began and today we’ll possibly begin to do workshops with the youth. The presentations so far have been very well received.
Pray for us, as the group we get to train looks to be over 100 in size, so space confines and keeping the process organized with language barriers will be tricky. But what an opportunity!
Attached are some pictures. God bless!
On Sunday, October 15th, team Beta presented five mimes to the staff and residents of Conestoga View Retirement Home. Later the team gathered at the Sensenig’s house for a team social with delicious pizza provided by the Sensenigs. :)
