It has been in the 90’s the past few days and it is starting to sink in that Summer is just around the corner. We just completed graduation, with our girls graduating from the 4th and 2nd grade last week. They are so excited about Summer! We also just completed our graduation for our School of Missions students as well. During our graduation brunch we took time to celebrate the student’s accomplishments and listen to what God has done in the students live over the past two years. One of our students from Kazakhstan shared this testimony of how her life was changed…
“When i came here i was a broken soul without plans for the future, without an interest in my life. But i feel so alive now! I’m so thankful for my Mom, because she believed that I can change myself and make my life better. Thank you everyone who was with me all this time. And thank you to all my teachers so much that you were with me! Thank you that you taught me love. It was the most perfect 9 months in my life! I love my class and my teachers, who had great patience and understanding for me! Looking back on my way I can see how I changed myself and I love it!”
With the school year coming to an end and we look back over the year of outreaches we had with the students we wanted to share with you what you have had a part of. In the past 9 months we have setup and led 21 outreaches in Tulsa and the surrounding communities. In those outreaches we saw 105 people open their hearts and receive Jesus. We also had several of our Missions students who were filled with the Holy Spirit during the outreaches. We helped give out over 2,000 bags of groceries, fed many homeless and ministered in transit hotels to prostitutes and trafficking victims. It was a great school year and we are already having meetings and working on next year! Our desire is that with each year we develop and grow the program so that we can produce the most fruit in these precious students that we have been entrusted with.
We also want to thank you for being a part of what we are doing. We have no doubt in my mind that these students are going to have a tremendous impact in the world. They are passionate and determined and each of them have a heart to serve and to help those who are in need. Only heaven knows how many lives each of them will touch and I thank God for the opportunity to play a small role in their lives.
