Looking Forward to 2018

Ministry Staff Retreat 2017

Ministry Staff Retreat 2017

Written by Yanelis Lopez, Ministry Director

Each year-end at Mission Adelante we have a time to process the current year and dream and plan for the coming year. Last weekend our Ministry Community Staff had time to evaluate and celebrate 2017 and work hard towards 2018.

I enjoy many things in my work, and being surrounded by friends who dream and work hard everyday to better serve the community is one of them. The three representative cultures of our staff greatly enrich the team: U.S., Nepal, and Cuba. We have been able to experience the challenges of diversity but, at the same time, the power of God to use our differences to teach us more about Himself and push us to grow in love from the deepest places of our hearts.

Next year we will be starting our Art and Music program, and we will continue improving our Kids, Teens, and ESL programs for all the cultures that live in KCK. And we long to see new groups of disciples from different cultures born. I invite you to please join in prayer with us and be a part of what God is doing through Mission Adelante. The miracles we see and enjoy are not possible without your support in prayer and in many other ways.
