Wildfire kicks off a new year with some exciting things coming.
For the first time this year Wildfire is heading to Honduras on a mission trip in February. It has been a long year of fundraising, but the end is near and we have almost all funds completely raised (praise God). On February 18th we leave for a week in Honduras and return February 24th. Many students and leaders will be having their first mission trip experience! Please join us in prayer for the following:
- Raise the remaining funds needed
- Safe travel for all
- Spiritual impact on those we serve
- Spiritual impact on those that go
March we look to start a new series called “Not a Fan” (http://www.notafan.com/teen-edition). The series focus on being a committed follower of Christ…here is an expert from the site
Twenty times in the New Testament, Jesus issued a compelling and challenging invitation to Follow Him. He’s not interested in mere fans. He doesn’t want enthusiastic admirers. He was Completely Committed Followers. Join Kyle Idleman as he encourages teens to examine what it means to deny one’s self and truly follow Jesus.
We are very excited for the series and the impact it will have on the group.
Late summer in 2017 also brings a transition to new Youth Leaders. Jonah and Kristen are stepping down sometime late Summer and a transition will happen to new leadership. Please pray for the new leaders, first that God will provide them and second that they will be a good fit for the Wildfire ministry.
Please keep Wildfire in your prayers as 2017 looks to be an exciting year for Wildfire.
