A Truly Special “Prom” Night!

Mark, Trevor, Terry and brotherjoe at A Night to Remember…I think

MISSION focused joined the photographers at Eastlake Church on Friday evening for A Night to Remember.  Eastlake Church brings together special needs teen-agers for “Prom Night.”   A chance for them to experience what other kids their age are doing this time of year…going to the Prom.

The evenings honored guests are pampered…with make up artists and hair stylists making them look extra nice, they get their photo taken in a studio that is set up and then it’s off to the Prom in a stretch limo!

Once they arrive, their family and friends are there acting at “paparazzi” on the red carpet…

This is the 2nd year we have helped with this great event!  What a blessing and honor to help with this great evening.  Praise God for the folks at Eastlake Church for this wonderful event.

Oaxaca 2012 :: Taking it Home!

The men gathered with Pastors Americo and Norma and their kids, inside the newly finished storage room for one last team photo before heading for home

After our little celebration dinner Dave gathered the men together one last time to encourage and thank the men for all their hard work and dedication to this years project in Oaxaca.  Sharing from Colosians 3, Dave encouraged the men to continue to do “good” when they get back home.  Paul reminds us in vs 11, that we are here serving Christ as fellow believers and servants of Jesus.  We are no longer Americans, Mexicans, Lutherans, Oregonians or whatever label you wanna use…we all belong to Christ.

Dave said that he is thankful that the all of the men took their time and talents to come and serve in Oaxaca with Adventures in Life this week, but if they do nothing else for the Kingdom of God this year, he would be sad.  Dave encouraged the men to continue to serve Christ and others when they get back home.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
(Colossians 3:16-17 ESV)

Kingdom work never ends.  It was a great week of ministry and a blessing to be a witness to the work that God did through the men this week.  If you want to see some photos from this week you can visit our Facebook page HERE.
