Late May Regional Update

May 31, 2018

Montana Women’s Center

This month we say goodbye to our Executive Director, Jan Henderson but not without a much deserved going away party.  The girls of the program got together and did the “Do it Again” spoken word… It always moves Jan to tears, as she is moving us to tears with her leaving, but we are thrilled for her. 

One of our students was baptized this last Sunday at Zootown Church. It was a spur of the moment decision that she will cherish for a lifetime!  

In this last month we have had an intern graduate and three new women enter the program. They have all fit right in like they have been here forever! We are getting a new student as I write this right now. That will bring our total to TEN GIRLS!  We had only four at Christmas so things are happening fast AND girls are staying and really getting that this really IS God’s perfect will for them right now!!

Eugene Women’s Center

We recently were able to celebrate the completion of two students! Lauren moved to Idaho to finish school and Sydney has decided to stay on and intern here at our Eugene center! We are so excited to see how God continues to use these two women to spread the Word.

Brownsville Assembly of God blessed our campus with a work day. The youth group and members from their congregation came to serve. Grass was mowed, limbs were cut, porches were mended and friends were made. Such a fun day that will not soon be forgotten. Our campus looks amazing!

Willamette Valley Men’s Center

This month Willamette Community Church hosted a Daddy Daughter Date Night and invited the fathers of Teen Challenge to attend. Those of us blessed with daughters got dressed up and had the opportunity to go show their daughters how to be treated on a date. This was great opportunity for the guys to spend some good quality time with their daughters. The Shedd campus also catered the event which allowed our guys a chance to help serve as well. There was great music, games to play with our girls, a craft area to remember the evening, and of course dancing. We had an amazing evening and we were grateful for the opportunity to spend one on one time with our daughters.

Graham Women’s Center

Student Spotlight: Maggie Mae has been homeless living in her car for 2 years- she is here going on her 2nd month and thriving! she’s learning to lean on God and is getting the chance to reconnect with her daughters!

Our Graham Women’s Center had a great turnout for our banquet! We had a live auction, dessert dash, and so much more. 4 ladies had the opportunity to share their Truths & Realities presentations. We had 3 ladies that had previously graduated in the years past, share their testimonies. Overall it was an awesome evening! 

Seattle Men’s Center

Dear Friends,

We invite you to our annual Pacific Northwest Adult and Teen Challenge Banquet with a live/silent auction held this year at the Renton Pavilion Center 233 Burnett Ave S. Renton WA 98057 on Saturday June 2nd, 2018 @ 5:00 PM.

The goal of our event is to celebrate the ministry of Pacific Northwest Adult and Teen Challenge, and the transformation of the lives of its current students through the redeeming power of Jesus Christ. Our financial needs will be met by God through sponsors like you who understand helping to change one life brings exponential change, as their lives tough others. Your generous giving and support will have a huge impact on current and future students, as well as advancing the Kingdom of God in our local communities. Together we can see God work miracles in the lives of the broken and hurting people through the power of His Love.

Tri-Cities Women’s Jail Outreach

Did you know that Tri-Cities Women’s Jail Outreach is able to send and receive mail from jails, prisons and communities across the United States? Our correspondence team distributes over 800 copies of each issue of our newsletter,  Door of Hope, to help women grow in their faith. We share success stories, letters to the editor and arrange to send correspondence Bible studies to women who request them.

 We received this letter recently “Having a pen pal is more valuable to me than anything else. A sister in Christ will be so much more supportive than an old using friend from the streets. Is there someone there that can write to me?” Our volunteer, Jo, has already begun a letter to her and will write regularly to help her grow strong in her new life. Thank you for your gifts that help us put mail in the hands of women eager to make a change.

Central Oregon Men’s Center

Our Spring Banquet had 200 guests that came out to support the ministry. We organized tables in a way that each table had a student to interact with, sharing their stories of transformation and restoration. The evening had a silent auction with many fun gift baskets, artwork, and local favorites. Our focus this year was on the work Jesus is doing in this ministry, the transformation of the hearts of our students. We shared our vision for the future and the direction God is taking us with the expansion of our bed capacity from 24 to 36, allowing us to put hope within reach of more men. Another praise report would be a $1,500 grant for Stay Sharp supplies through Community 101 at Ridgeview High School, one of the schools where we’ve had the opportunity make a difference with our Stay Sharp presentations.
