THE HEART OF A 9 YEAR OLD

Many have volunteered at the Maple Leaf Tutoring Program in Brick for over 12 years now. Here is just one testimony that happened this month with one of our students…

Since covid, we have had a “invite only” for our students so that our volunteers to student ratio is doable and allows us to build on more relationships with the students. In the fall a young student, D’Mari, came to us and asked if he could be a part of the program. Quite and somewhat shy, we said yes and he began coming. We come to find out in January that he has been bullied in and out of school. We addressed this with the entire group. A few weeks ago we had the students play a game where they partnered up and one person was blindfolded while the other person had to direct them through an obstacle course by only using their voice as the other students were making noise. At the end we talked to them about the importance of listening to God’s voice in the midst of all the other “noise” that we can hear around us.

When the students went on to their next activity, D’Mari stayed behind. He looked at me and said, “Ms. Pam, can I tell you something?” I replied, “Sure”. He then said with tears coming into his eyes, “I don’t know, you may be mad at me.” I assured him that he could tell me anything and that I would not be mad at him. This is what he said next, “My dad doesn’t believe in God, I am not sure if I believe in God, but I have been coming here and each day I hear about Jesus and God, I just don’t know what to believe.” Then my eyes wanted to fill with tears! I took him on the side and we talked about Jesus. I believe this conversation will be one of many going forward. Please pray for D’Mari and his sweet heart, that Jesus will fill it! And for his dad to come to believe as well!

This is why we do what we do and we are so thankful for ALL who volunteer, pray and support the different parts of the ministry!

Hi Everyone!

We are back from the Atlantic City Mission Trip! It was another blessed year serving alongside New City Fellowship Church! Our bible clubs were amazing…so many kids and adults! We also had many opportunities to serve in the community through cleaning up parks, setting up computers, helping in a food bank and fixing a ceiling in a church. See the above link to watch this year’s video! Thank you so much for praying for out time there and please continue to pray for Pastor Pete and all who continue to serve and work within the ministry.

 

 

Now another team of 9 are off to Albania this Thursday! We are finalizing everything and fly out at 5:30PM – landing at 11am on Friday (Albania time). We appreciate your prayers for the time we are there. All our friends in Albania are anxious to see us and spend the next 12 days serving and then for some of us, an additional week to prepare and celebrate the wedding of Nicole and Plator!

Thank you to all who are praying, all those who gave, and all those who continue to support the ministry of Step of Faith!!

 

Hello Everyone,

We appreciate your prayers as our AC Mission Team prepares to leave for Atlantic City on August 5 until the 11th. This is our 12th year serving with New City Fellowship in AC.

The AC Team is made up of 10 team members from 5 different churches. Each morning we will be engaged in discipleship teaching on cross-cultural ministry learning about how we can be more aware of the people around us, sharing the Word of God and being a bridge from the community to the church.  During the day we will be involved with a variety of service projects that the team from AC prepares for us. This time will give us opportunity to share Jesus and help meet some tangible needs in the community. And three of the nights we will be sharing Jesus with the children of Carver Hall through our Bible Club. 

Thank you!
