admin#Repost @jonthesmaller with @repostapp.・・・Today is my 32nd birthday. Birthdays are sometimes difficult for me. But as difficult as they can be, they are also beautiful reminders of the past, and hopeful when dreaming for the future. This year, I'm reminded of how lucky I am to be involved in such a grassroots mission. The families I've encountered over the last five years have radically changed me, softened me, and opened me up to things beyond myself. This year instead of gifts, i'd like to try something different and make one of my dreams a reality. I'd like for 10 kids to have full scholarship to go on a retreat (Steubenville, confirmation, AYC, etc…). My hope is that today, we can get $1000 to go towards 10 kids from our missions, in hopes that they can encounter God in a way they've never thought possible. So, share, give, pray. I'll be giving $50 from our families budget to this cause as well, so at the very least, we've raised something for them! If we raise more than anticipated, it just means more kids can share in this experience summer 2016. Thanks for all the well wishes, texts, emails. It means a lot. Now, let's do something great for these kids on just another Tuesday!

adminOur annual summer internship is now open for all college aged students. If you're interested in what it means to live a life on mission, then we ask that you consider applying for this summer experience. Unlike anything you'll do in a normal job, this internship not only has weekly formation, community living, and intentional ministry in the shadows of Houston, but you'll be immersed in a life of prayer learning from some of our most veteran missionaries. Above all you'll do in Houston this summer, the greatest gift is what you'll become. God has a way of changing lives through mission, and we're excited to walk alongside you and see what He's doing. We'll be accepting apps from March 8-March 21. Download it from the link in our profile and send away!
adminWe have another double feature tonight with both #adorecentralhouston and #adorenorthhouston happening across town from each other! Join Michael Gormley at the Catholic Charismatic Center or Fr. Louis Mérosné at Prince of Peace. Same Jesus at both locations. #evennowseries
adminLooking for something different this spring break? Feeling a pull towards mission but not really sure what that looks like domestically? Adore Houston Mission Trip just might be the experience you've been waiting for. Today is the first day of sign ups for our annual spring break mission trip here in Houston, and we couldn't be happier to ask you to consider doing this once a year immersion. From March 7-11, spend a week shadowing our missionaries here in Houston, serving our mission communities, potentially eating some really really great food, and most definitely meeting some really really awesome people.From Richmond/Rosenberg to the shadow of downtown in 5th ward/Denver Harbor, our missionaries serve neighborhoods all across Houston and the US. What does the prayer life of a missionary look like? Is God really working in the forgotten areas of major US cities? Where can I find the best tamales?We've got your answers…at least as it pertains to food. If you or someone you know is interested, have them shoot Jonathan an email. Spaces are limited!
