Adelante Express: Consistency in Student Attendance

Faithfulness plus Enthusiasm Equals Consistent Students

We’re in the fourth week of the trimester, and we’re finding the students’ attendance to be increasingly consistent by the trimester. This is due much in part to your faithfulness and enthusiasm!

Kids Adelante reaching neighborhood kids

Thirty or more kids have attended Kids Adelante every week so far. Jarrett reports that each of the four age groups has good balance and that the volunteers are doing an outstanding job leading them. It has been exciting for him to see a boy named Eric in the oldest age group attend repeatedly with his friend Agustin, although his parents are not connected with the ministry. Also, Megan McDermott, Kids Adelante volunteer, is the first intern lined up for this summer, and has begun preparing for that role.

Milestones in the Mission Adelante Church Plant

A pivotal moment for the ministry occurred Sunday night as our monthly Worship Celebration was transitioned to meeting at the facility. Families assembled in rows of chairs set up in the south hall resembled a church gathering. Jarrett taught about Christian service and then we took the first big step in the process of mobilizing Hispanic volunteers: we divided up and launched three teams including Spiritual Growth, Practical Service, and Sunday-night Children’s Ministry. Please pray for momentum and member ownership of these new teams.

A Prayer Request-Stolen Truck

Also, a truck belonging to Yolanda, ESL level 3, and Lorenzo, ESL level 1 was stolen last week. It has been found, but was stripped of parts. Please pray for resolution of the matter in their favor with their insurance company.
