GO MINISTRY

Our Go Partner Spotlight of the month is Kimmy Iverson with Pioneers in East Asia. Kimmy is a missionary with Pioneers in an Eastern Asia country, where she serves as an English teacher at a local school. Kimmy's ministry is to build relationships with the students through teaching in the classroom and coaching basketball, as well as with the faculty, opening the doors for an opportunity to share the Gospel.

Care Offering: Today's care offering is going to purchase beds for the children at the Connect2 orphanage in Haiti. Our Crossroads team went down there in August and helped Connect2 build the orphanage. Let's fill that building with beds for children who are currently enslaved and without a home.

Serving Opportunity: Hope Gardens is seeking five to six women to volunteer to help start a weekly women's Bible study. The study will begin in October and run for 12 weeks. They are also looking for five to seven men and women to help/lead an Awana group. If interested, contact Mike Broyles at mikeb@awana.org or on his cell at 661-816-8081 for more information.

TEN

TEN is a mission we launched on our ten-year anniversary, when the Crossroads family, by God's grace commits to giving our lives away in three ways: First is by planting ten healthy Bible-teaching churches. Second is to build out and pay off the Valencia Crossroads Main Campus within the next ten years. Last is to identify, select, and financially underwrite the cost to send ten teenage orphans to The Master's University over the next decade. Join us. Together, we can invest in the future today by making your check out to TEN or donate online at lifeatcrossroads.org/give. All contributions to TEN are tax-deductible under IRS guidelines.
