Regarded As Better Than Before.

Regarded as better than before indeed!

Regarded as better than before indeed!

10 sentences on our work of mission with Bridges of Hope that we regard as “better than before:”

  1. Head to Facebook to enjoy an images of our work we’ve entitled “Regarded As Better Than Before.”
  2. Maxie submitted a major grant proposal to KFC (yes, the Colonel’s company!) to underwrite our entire food program throughout Bridges.
  3. Chris & Maxie facilitated storyboards for Academy & Community Development staff, helping set 2013 goals in an achievable narrative context.
  4. Chris was invited to help develop a weekly discipleship training curriculum for 20+ facilitators in our After School Program (ASP) & Orphan & Vulnerable Children (OVC) support groups in the Cape Flats.
  5. Maxie has participated in a Fundraising Boot Camp focused on how to approach & secure South African corporate social investment funds for non-profit organizations. Super helpful!
  6. We hosted a short-term team of 9 young women from Biola University in January who led 3 separate camps for Academy students, alumni, and children from our communities.
  7. Chris has begun chapels for Academy students & staff began under a massive oak tree in mid January, with the theme of “On Me (I Am A Seed)” from Isaiah 61:1-3. We are acorns becoming oaks!
  8. A 40-day reading group of Academy students kicked off on Ash Wednesday, coming around the simple yet powerful themes of growth in “Purpose-Driven Life.”
  9. Chris is prayerfully discerning initial inquiries from several local churches as to how best they can come alongside Academy students in service. A possibility of a South African mentoring network for Learners is emerging!
  10. Maxie was blessed by friends who invited her to receive Level 1 StrengthFinder training this past week for free! We both are becoming certified coaches in this key developmental training!
