On Saturday, February 20, the youth and adults from Youth Community Explosion were traveling to a retreat when their 15-passenger van caught on fire. Everyone escaped safely, but the van was completely destroyed. Modern Woodmen of America and Christian World Missions teamed up to provide 2 new vans for the youth service club. This club is teaching some of Starkville’s brightest and most under-served youth to shine like stars in our community. Thank you for helping them get back on the road!

For 45 years, Christian World Missions has reached far beyond our community to help those in need, but we have also realized that there is much to be done right here at home. For various reasons, many families in our community find it difficult to enter a church, and there is no other place on the North side of town where people who are not comfortable going in a church can experience Christ. What an opportunity for us to minister!
In the summer of 2015, we launched YCE (Youth Community Explosion) with 26 6th-8th grade youth. We are now in our fourth session. Each day the youth recite the YCE creed and mission statement. They share a meal, pray, worship and have a devotional time. They enjoy crafts, activities, field trips, and service projects. The fall session will begin on September 12, 2016.
Also in 2015, we began making improvements to our 10,000 sq. ft. facility. When completed it will have a worship center/gym, a full kitchen, 4 class rooms, a library, a youth game room, a craft room, 4 restrooms, an office, HVAC, and a fire sprinkler system. These improvements will open the door of hope for mentoring, tutoring, healthy living, building strong relationships, and making disciple of Jesus Christ.
We were recently given 12 computers, monitors, mouses, and keyboards. As his Eagle Scout project, a local scout configured and prepared the network connections for those computers. Once the construction is completed, those computers will be permanently placed and ready for use in tutoring and learning various software programs. Other items that have been donated include desks, couches, pingpong and foosball tables, and games and toys for kids.
We are excited about this ministry that God has placed in our hands. Your generous gift will make a huge difference to the children, families, and neighborhoods of North Starkville and beyond. Click HERE for the “Door of Hope” video.

The 2016 Africa Mission encountered many delays due to violence in the regions where the crusades were planned. In March, 5 new churches were started in the Sunyani Diocese in Ghana. In June, Nigeria was finally able to start 5 new churches in the Port Harcourt Diocese. Please pray for these new churches, their leaders and congregations as they suffer great persecution. We hope to have reports and pictures soon.
