This morning Erin helped lead her first meeting of “The Well” with KMM missionaries Amy Brandenburg, Shirley Fryer, and Pam Price. “The Well” is a new ministry they are developing to reach out to mothers and grandmothers raising small children and babies in our area. There is child care available for children and the ladies enjoy a time of fellowship, crafts, and Bible study. The main goal is to encourage and refresh mothers, by giving them fellowship and letting them know how much God loves them.
Today’s first meeting went very well and the ladies had a great time. They will be meeting again in December and moving the meeting into the evening in order to reach even more ladies.
Please keep praying for Erin and the other missionary ladies as they seek to impact and encourage ladies and moms in our community!
On December 1, 2012 our FCA students will be joining us as we put on our first ever FCA outreach where the students will be doing a ministry to reach their lost family and friends. This year our leadership team wanted to do a concert to reach their community and beyond. Thanks to “The City Seen” a Christian Rock/Praise and Worship band from Stanton, KY we are going to be having a free concert outreach on December 1st that will start at 7 pm. Please invite any individuals, youth groups, or other groups you know to come and take advantage of this FREE concert that will be a a great outreach opportunity for them! Please pray for our students too as they will be reaching out into the community to work invite people! Lastly, stop by the Rec Center and I will have plenty of flyers you can have to invite your friends!
On Friday, October 26th, we held our annual Halloween Teen Lock-In outreach at the Rec Center. 120 students joined us from 10 pm on Friday night until 6 am on Saturday morning. This year our numbers were down from past years, however I really think God provided the perfect amount of students for us. The number was just write that we weren’t overcrowded, we didn’t have the behavioral issues we have had in past years, all students were able to fit into the same room for our guest speaker, and we were able to really mix in and interact with the students and not just do crowd control.
Throughout the night the students enjoyed bowling, cosmic bowling, pool and ping pong tournaments, karaoke, and various other games and activities. We were also blessed through the hard work of many people that our new restrooms were able to be used for the first time. This eliminated many long bathroom lines and made for a much more enjoyable night as well!
In the middle of the night KMM missionary David Price was our guest speaker. He talked with the students about how what is on the outside doesn’t always match what’s on inside and how Christ is the only one who can truly bring change to the inside of us. Dave shared with the students about the difference between religion and a personal relationship with Christ. While Dave was speaking I surveyed the audience and could tell that God was really speaking to several of our students. While we want our students to have fun at the lock-in’s our devotional time is the most important thing we do. Last night many seeds were planted and hearts spoken to. Please join us in praying that God will use last night and that students will surrender their lives to Him as a result.
The lock-in was a great time for us as we enjoyed time with our students and got to share Christ with them. A special thanks to everyone who gave of their time to work with our students. Keep praying for the students and if you would like to help at a lock-in with us sometime we have another one coming up on New Year’s Eve!!!
Erin and I decided to start a blog together where we can keep all our family, friends, and faithful prayer and support partners updated on what God is doing in ministry with KMM. We realize we send out prayer letters, but sometimes there are urgent needs or prayer requests that we would like to get to you sooner. Also, we wanted a way where you could be even more of a part of ministry here. So please check in regularly and see what all is going on!
