Ministry Update

In February, 3:18 Ministries hosted a short-term ministry team from Olathe Christian Church in Olathe, Kansas. The team from Olathe Christian Church built a new storage shed at the San Carlos Tribal Youth Home. The old metal storage shed, which housed important records and supplies, was leaking water and the front doors would not close correctly. The Youth Home is a Tribal run group foster home and emergency shelter. For just minimum wage, the staff of the Youth Home cares for these precious children who are in a difficult situation. When funds run short, the staff will use their personal finances to purchase the necessary supplies.

Tory and Kara’s first short-term mission trip to San Carlos was in 2001. They spent their week serving at this very same Youth Home. Relationships have been formed and strengthened over these past 14 years. In 2015, 3:18 Ministries is focusing on serving the Youth Home through service projects. We are hoping to remodel several of the bathrooms which are in rough shape, build a new playground, and build another needed storage shed. These projects will take extra funds. Would you prayerfully consider a special gift to help 3:18 Ministries serve the staff and children at the Youth Home? Donations can be sent to 3:18 Ministries’ post office box. Please attach a note indicating your gift is for the “Youth Home.”

The team from Olathe Christian Church also helped us host an Afterschool Bible Club in Moonbase. The children are remembering the lessons from day to day. God’s Word is being planted in their hearts. We are so grateful for our short-term ministry teams!
