Overwhelmed!

Can I take a break from being the so called Executive Director of Next Generations Ministries?

Just a tiny one?  No tie on a white shirt?  No executive decisions to make?  Just share the overwhelming emotions that seem uncontrollable?

Okay.  Thanks!

The imaginary has become reality!  I had no idea that this inaugural journey branded ONE STEP was going to be this exciting.  We will close out the first three weeks soon and my passion for mentoring has been aroused to the extent that I feel like a little kid who has stumbled onto a treasure chest stuffed with priceless jewels.

Though it was not part of the curriculum, the invitation for the students of One Step 2016 to come do a five day mission in Tanzania has been received by faith with boundless enthusiasm.

The "team" is rehearsing for the various ways they want to share the grace of Jesus being released in their lives.  Not just musical numbers, dancing, skits, testimonies, and preaching ... but, person to person evangelism.

There was no space in the budget for this mission and it will require passing privileges through Kenya and visas into Tanzania ... no small cost for the 18 members of this intercultural group that has already bonded together in genuine love.

I need just 100 people to donate a minimum of simply $25 to be within reach of our goal of $3,000 to cover transportation, accommodations, feeding, and visas for this group.  Would you please be one of those? We will be taking our own vehicles and one of our members will not only be a driver, but a mechanic.

We believe the money is already there, so we are preparing.  Take a look at this video taken just moments ago.  The team is learning and rehearsing a Zulu song ... among others.

Please use the crowd fundraising below to donate now.  We are thankful to have you on our team! It will be exciting to give you feedback from this enormous privilege.  We had no idea ... but, we are convinced it is from God.  Our date of departure is November 1st.
