GO MINISTRY

Go Spotlight:  Connect2 Ministries was founded by Crossroads member, Greg Barshaw, and works to connect churches in the United States with churches in the developing world. Through these partnerships, teams are sent on mission trips to orphanage homes, where they can help provide resources, do maintenance work on the buildings, and love the children in the homes. The ministry currently has two homes for homeless, orphaned, and at-risk children in Haiti, and are working to build another. They recently finished building a Vocational Training Center, which empowers both the local community and the children in the homes as they reach adulthood by offering education in practical skills such as tailoring, auto mechanics, baking and animal husbandry, as well as small business management. Email go@lifeatcrossroads.org if you would like more info on Connect2.

Missionary Thank You:  For the month of July, we would love to thank our international missionaries! Visit the table in the lobby to write them an encouraging note and let them know we are praying for them. We will collect and send the cards out to them after the last week of July.
