What Are You Doing for Others?

In 2018, Grace Klein Community hosted 36 serve teams that provided invaluable support and volunteer work force to our day-to-day operations. Without 100 volunteers EVERY week, GKC cannot operate effectively. As we enter 2019, we are trusting for 52 serve teams, to average one a week, to keep us energized and operating smoothly. For January 2019, we are off to an excellent start with 5 incredible groups of people, 7…Keep Reading

Speed Networking for a Cause

January 2019 in Alabama has been an unpredictable one. It seems like just as we were starting to pack away the heavy coats and prepare for warmer weather, Jack Frost decides to nip and nash at our noses. January has experienced tornados, storms, ice, and heat waves–how on earth are we suppose to know what to expect on any given day?! Lucky for us, just as one aspect of our…Keep Reading

Pearls of Slum – 2018 Year End Review

Praise God for the year 2018 and for the opportunities that The Lord Jesus provided us to serve, teach and reach out to communities/individuals and our church teens. We always thank and praise God for your trust in us, kind support, encouragement and constant prayers. Though we have not seen any baptisms yet, we have a couple of souls who accepted the Lord as their Savior and they have been…Keep Reading

When Operations Collide

Operation “Slow and Steady Wins the Race” and Operation “Restoration in Progress” have collided into a beautiful kaleidoscope of accomplishments. The hardwoods were in poor shape due to animal stains and took much tender loving care by George and Lorenzo of “G&S The Floor Care People” to bring them to a beautiful refurbished condition. Due to prior harsh treatment of the floors, the floors are not going to be perfect,…Keep Reading

Mimic Moon Joy

We rang in the New Year with many friends at a delightful party hosted by the Crosby family! January has proven to be a busy beginning and Evan looks forward to the opportunities 2019 will bring. He is grateful for everyone’s support through prayers, food, visits, and contributions which continue to equip Evan to recover in body and spirit. His MRI results have been good so his MRI testing is now…Keep Reading

Don’t Underestimate the Missionary Kid: 5 Things I see everyday

“Observations after nearly six months of teaching… Nope, I haven’t been here long. And to be fair, I didn’t even know the term “MK” until I was in college. An “MK,” or missionary kid, is a child of a parent or family that serves as a missionary and thus raised or living abroad in a country or area that is not their own. More than half of my students are…Keep Reading

Servanthood

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love and in purity.” (1 Timothy 4:12) If there ever was a verse that exemplified Jalen Mosely, this is it. This young man is one of our regular afternoon volunteers and believe it or not, he is still in high school! The first day that he showed up, stating that he was here…Keep Reading

Hidden Treasure

“Have you ever wished that you had something or had a need for something that just showed up on its own? We all know that God knows about all our needs and wants and provides for those according to His will, but sometimes He sends someone like Taney Brazeal. Taney has only been volunteering with us for a few months, but he undoubtedly shows up with the exact thing we just prayed for and at…Keep Reading

Twatasha – Thank You!

“Uwushitasha paka nono, napafikulu takatashe”~ Bemba proverb translated as “ he who fails to show gratitude for the little, fails to show gratitude even when much is given.” To say that we’ve been in Birmingham the last 5 1/2 weeks (6 weeks by the time we leave this Saturday) seems so surreal.But that’s precisely how quickly time races by. This has been a unique visit on many levels. We love…Keep Reading

Openhanded

Our Gifts for the Forgotten initiative has been a beautiful tapestry of individuals and businesses working together to make something seemingly impossible – possible. God is the God of the impossible and so we love jumping into projects that are only possible if Jesus shows up. Over and over again we see how God miraculously provides at the last second to minister deeply to the heart of a child. He…Keep Reading

So if Christ is the Head of the Church and we are the Body…

“You cannot be My disciple if you do not carry your own cross and follow Me…” (Luke 14:27) Truth? I did have some concerns. My concerns pre-Senegal about community came out during a conversation with Jenny at the Grace Klein Memorial Day camping trip this year. We realized we both live in this deep reality and Truth that the BEST people we know are those that together advance the Kingdom…Keep Reading

“She Speaks.”

“She speaks.” A vague whisper that I heard in my Spirit as I unpacked the boxes from Africa. One by one I unwrapped the precious collection of items made by the women of South Africa. Items that I was supposed to set up and sell in a “Pop-up” store to benefit one of our global partners, Kwathu Children’s Home in Livingstone, Zambia. I was instantly fascinated. Throws of bright colors…Keep Reading
