First Quarter Report 2016
From Ivan Gonzalez:
I would like to start with thanking you for your continual support. It is very encouraging when you know there are people that believe in the work that is being done for our Lord. Your support is a great blessing, I thank God for your collaboration and your help, not only here at Boulevard but throughout Oklahoma City and the world.
Your support allows me to focus in different areas of ministry. With your help and the Boulevard family I am able to focus my time in working in the following ministries. Merge Group (our There is so much to inform you of but I would like to begin with our Merge Group. This semester we have been able to accomplish so many things. We have started a process that allows me to help the young men strengthen their teaching skills. Their willingness and collaboration has been great! Also, seven of us from the group were able to go on a mission trip February 13-15th to help tout the Wolf Point church of Christ with their youth rally. There I was given the honor of speaking at this event. Attached is our newsletter where you will be able to read more about our trip and our adventures in Montana.
Hands & Feet continues to grow! When college classes are in session we tend to have a bigger number of helper which is a great blessing. Because of the extra help we were able to schedule four group volunteer dates at the food bank. We continue to work with Oklahoma Christian to be able to give OC students Kudos credits for their help. Though kudos are given, many do it for the love of Jesus. Also, we are now serving 80 meals every week! God is blessing this ministry in many ways!
Eagle Christian Ministry also continues to grow. I help with this ministry in various ways but my main responsibility is to teach a weekly bible study. Eagle is a one year program where we provide spiritual help and provide the opportunity for a sober living for women. I would like to inform you that two of our ladies, Donna Capper and Kelly Tarver, have completed the program this last quarter. They have added to our Senior Board of Mentors.
God continues to bless our work here at Boulevard! Thank you once again for your continuing support. I cannot wait to share more about how things are going here at Boulevard. Thank you Oakcrest for helping us help others!
Sincerely, your brother in Christ,
