The Walk Holiday Newsletter 2023

As the year concludes, we gratefully reflect on the ways God has touched our community. Our teenagers experienced divine moments in various locations, from the river in New Orleans to New York City parks and the sidewalks of San Francisco. Whether on Sunday afternoons, Monday or Wednesday nights, or at events like Bigstuf and mission trips to other states, our students sought a deeper understanding and a personal relationship with God.

In quiet admiration, we witnessed God's presence shaping the lives of these remarkable teenagers and those with whom we shared Jesus. Looking ahead, we carry this gratitude into the coming year, eager for new stories and encounters with the power of the Holy Spirit dwelling within us.

Our students help bring the hope of Jesus Christ to a weary world, impacting lives whether through a teenager's outreach on the streets or the laughter resonating in Building 229 on Sunday afternoons, Monday and Wednesday nights. Their leadership and love, made possible by your support, create moments of joy and lasting transformation. As we enter the holiday season, we invite you to continue supporting the mission, offering teenagers in our community possibilities for a brighter future. Your ongoing contributions not only address short-term needs but also ensure the financial sustainability of this mission for the next generation. We extend our deepest gratitude for the prayers, spiritual guidance, financial assistance, and time you've generously dedicated to our ministry, recognizing that God consistently uses your support to bring glory to His name.

During the 2023 NYC mission trip, Chris was inspired by the two greatest commandments—'love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and strength' and 'love your neighbor as yourself.' Rushing through the subway, the group encountered a man preaching the same message, a divine confirmation of their purpose. Pausing to listen, they were joined by others. The man's bold faith, sharing the gospel before heading to work, left a lasting impression, humbling the group. Lauren expressed a desire for all to emulate this commitment, being captivated by love and willing to go to great lengths to share the truth of who Jesus is.

‘Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember I am with you always, to the end of the age.’ – Matthew 28:19-20"
