This month our Go Partner spotlight is Peter and Heather Malakar, who are serving in Central Asia. Peter and Heather have several major ministries. They recently took over ownership of a music and language center, which they use to build relationships in the community. The Malakars are also involved in training church leaders, providing medical care to the underprivileged, and reaching out to university students through teaching English. Peter primarily serves as the pastor of Capital Bible Church, as well as a doctor overseeing the medical clinic. Please pray for the Malakar family as they seek to share Christ in a country and culture dominated by Hinduism.
Baby Bottle Boomerang: As a reminder, please bring your filled bottle back to the cart by next week, Father’s Day, Sunday, June 18. All money received goes directly to the Santa Clarita Valley Pregnancy Center.

Surf Club usually returns around 6:30 p.m. Hey parents, we need drivers if you want to join us!
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. Join us. Together, we can invest in the future today by making your check out to TEN or donating online at lifeatcrossroads.org/give. All contributions to TEN are tax-deductible under IRS guidelines.
