Thoughts from the President
By: Russ Martin
I am very pleased to report that during the second quarter of 2018, MBCH through MBCH Children and Family Ministries and The LIGHT House participated in 41 children and youth reaching permanency. 15 of those were through reunifications with family, 5 through guardianships, and 21 through adoptions. That makes a total of 71 for the year.
We are privileged and humbled to have had a part in helping these children and youth and their families to be reunified or to help in locating another forever home.
Your prayers and financial support make this possible. Thank you for joining hands with us in this important ministry to children, youth, and families.
Summer Camp and Retreat (posted 08/14/2018)
MBCH hosted its summer camp for children and youth in our therapeutic group homes and treatment foster care programs and a retreat for the clients in our pregnancy services program the end of July and early August. Both events were very successful and we want to thank you for your prayers and for your financial support of these two important events.
Leadership of both indicated the Holy Spirit was at work and that we are aware of eleven professions of faith at camp and two at the retreat. We thank our Lord for these lives that have been changed for eternity.
The camp and retreat was staffed by staff, board members, and volunteers. Their participation was critical.
Again, thank you to those who prayed, those who gave, and those who worked. We appreciate you all.
