Dear Valley Christian Church,
GoWeek 1 finished three weeks ago and it was a great week together. 19 Goers and 1 new staff member all participated in our newly revamped GoCorps Face to Face Crowdfunding Training. All of our Goes spend the 12 weeks after GoWeek enlisting a team of friends and family to partner with them financially and in prayer for their two year placement. They will set-up 10 meetings each week and share a compelling presentation with their prospective partners. GoCorps staff Julia and Katy led the new and improved training and it was the best one yet! In fact, this class of Goers is off to the fastest pace ever in their number of meetings and in receiving commitments toward their fundraising goals!
Here’s two observations from GoWeek 1:
For our Goers… They are 3 weeks into their summer campaign to raise up a team of people who will partner with them financially and in prayer. They have 9 more weeks to complete their funding and partnership needs.
For our Staff… For the next month or so, much of our staff are focused on connecting with our supporters to give ministry updates and express our appreciation for our partners.
For GoCorps… We are in the process of creating a specific effort to do much more of our recruiting in the digital landscape, putting things in place to connect our vision with students and young adults through social media channels and other online venues.
Please pray for each of these next steps! For our Goers, staff and for the mission of the organization, each of these are super crucial to going after the vision God has given us!
Together for God’s global work,
Paul Van Der Werf
Founder and Executive Director
Dear Christian Friends,
On June 6, 2018 we hosted an event on our campus with the Governor of the State of Mexico. He signed a bill into law for the state of Mexico that will help speed up the process of placing children with families in adoption and will also speed up the time that decisions are made to place children in our care.
Niños was selected to host the event because of our pattern of helping children in family units. We feel very privileged to have received this "nod" from the government concerning how we care for the children that God has placed in our homes.
Continue to pray with us for God's direction and wisdom as we accept kids and attempt to raise them to be productive citizens here in Mexico and to love the Lord!
