Transforming foster care by building community and restoring
hope to vulnerable families & children.
Greeting Pray and Share Team, 

As we have now entered into our second year of the Pray and Share Ministry it is so important we stay the course.  We thank-you for your patience as we have worked together to lay a proper foundation to build off of.  The scripture below really speaks to my heart in regards to this season and also ties into our event this month Mariners Fearless 5K on February 10th (all proceeds will go to the Foster Youth & Families of Orange County.) 

Hebrews 12:1 (ESV) Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

What a powerful scripture!
ENDURING HIS RACE
We recently received an email with an urgent request asking for a mentor to assist one of our High School Foster youth, who is in need of encouragement to help him continue the race before him.  This young man is in his senior year, a good student and very active on the school Wrestling team- which is one of the reasons he has chosen not to transfer schools even though it would have placed him closer to his current resident.  He wakes up every morning at 5:00 am to take a bus to school, which he has done for several years.  He now seems to be getting a little weary and as he prepares for his final semester there is a need for someone to walk alongside him in hopes to help guide him into adulthood and a career path. When you have someone alongside of you cheering you on it helps you endure even the most treacherous terrain. If you are able to help in anyway please contact us direct.

God is on the move, 
Ana Martinez
