Friends and family,
Please take 3 minutes to hear my heart on this and pray for us and invest if you are able. We still have 30 kids left to sponsor for our summer program and we need your help.

I believe that nothing will restore and heal our community more sustainably than discipling the kids and youth and helping them experience and learn about abiding in Christ in a safe, fun, and love-filled environment. Summer is a time where many kids in Grove Park have nothing to do and our team of community advocates have come up with a plan.

Honestly, I'm tired right now. Can I be real? I am so tired of hearing gunshots. Tired of reports like what I heard yesterday of two people one street over from us getting shot in drug related violence. I'm tired of seeing kids wandering the streets all summer with nothing productive to live for, and knowing that some of these cowardly drug dealers are enticing some of our kids with purpose (and $) running drugs for them. I'm tired of seeing parents who so desperately love their kids, frazzled and  even hopeless trying to figure out how to navigate the summer and keep their kids involved in safe, positive things on a limited budget (I am one of those parents). I'm tired of hearing of another young person locked up and in the system and cycle of crime. We must do something and Operation End the Boredom is one of many awesome initiatives we see God's people here in Grove Park doing to change the narrative for our young people. 

Our team and partners have faithfully and tirelessly planned out 8 weeks of awesome activities ranging from ropes courses, martial arts, sewing, Art camp, sports, camping, VBS, and community beautification projects with the gospel at the heart of everything... and we have nearly 60 kids and teens signed up. The youth are hungry for purpose and want to do something with their summer that matters.

God has raised up a great team of Jesus followers, passionate about the next generation, to serve these precious little ones. Now all we need is the support to make up the difference that our families in our community can't afford to pay. $200/kid will make that happen. We still have 30 kids left to go. Summer camps kick off June 5th with Camp All-American and Innerman Basketball coming and serving our Westside community. That's in two days... Please prayerfully consider helping us make this "Operation" a success. 

 

Impact the future, invest in the next generation!
