Dear Friends:

We stand back swallowed in life’s chaos that stirs around us, and miss the moments that matter as it all passes by. The chaos isn’t always bad, but it is distracting. So we watch and pray and wait and do. We do what we know how to do in our own strength.

But God asks us rest in Him. He is the One who stands in the calm of chaos and directs our steps. In Him, His glory is revealed in us. In Him, we are able to be powerful. In Him, we accomplish more than we might ask our even think. In Him, we have watched these beautiful daughters of His do all that and abundantly more this year. In the midst of the daily chaos, our vantage point has been limited. But, in reflection of this past year, His abundance is obvious!

“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us,
to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” ~ Ephesians 3:20

Blessings . . .
Kym & Jan

Peace in the Storm

Dear Friends:

The beauty of new life all around us at Spring time gives us peace. I think we all need a reminder once in a while that it is possible to have peace, in spite of how things look in our secular world. Once we get to that place of peace within our spirit, the next challenge is hanging on to it, in spite of the troubles we face in our lives. At John 16:33 we are told to take heart because God has overcome the world! His promise is peace that passes all understanding.  We may not understand it while we are walking in the storm, but we find peace.  We trust Him knowing He will use the storm to nourish our soul.

Have a blessed Mother’s Day!

Kym and Jan

Walk Amazed With God
Thank You for a Successful 5K!

We are very grateful to everyone who joined us for our annual 5K event last Saturday. As you can see in this picture, it was not raining or snowing – yeah! We had over 200 participants support us as we brought awareness of Child Abuse Prevention month to the community – the support for this event was tremendous!

See more thank yous, photos and videos from the 5K on FB

Prayers and Praises
It’s that time of year again . . .at Agape House; we are walking amazed with God as we watch Him transform our caterpillars (the girls) into butterflies – it is always such a beautiful process!

Max Lucado says, “God loves us just the way we are, but He is not finished with us yet.” God continues to refine us to help us be just like Jesus. Our girls are in a transitional time as they finish up these last few weeks of school, uncertain about what the future looks like for them.

PLEASE PRAY FOR:

~ Respite options for girls who may not be able to fully re-unify with their families this summer.

~ Endurance for staff as they minister to the girls in preparation of upcoming transition into their family homes this summer.

~ Ministry needs for the 2018-2019 school year.

PRAISE GOD FOR:

~ A successful 5K event bringing awareness to child abuse and the impact it offers.

~ Girls who are achieving goals, beginning employment and other independent activities.

~ Grant monies awarded to Agape House from Alliant Energy Foundation.

“How great is the love the Father has for us.” ~ 1 John 3:1

Thank you for your ongoing support and prayers for this ministry.
