May 2013 Newsletter

In April, Cherry Street kids celebrated their academic achievements with a skating party. For some of the children, it was their first time skating, and many of them were fearful of falling to the floor. Reassurance was of-fered as skates were placed on their tiny feet, laces were tied, and helping hands lifted apprehensive skaters off the bench. Staff and older, more ex-perienced skaters, watched dread turn to delight as the precious children learned to skate and created long-lasting memories.

Isaiah 41:10-13 states, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dis-mayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, ‘Do not fear; I will help you.’”

We believe that God’s mighty right hand works through you and enables us to minister to His children. Thank you for helping put a smile on these precious faces. – Larry Grogan

April 2013 Newsletter

Cherry Street West saw some revi-talization in early March and was featured in Chanute Tribune on Tuesday, March 26! The walls were repainted by Cherry Street students, and four murals of various sizes were done by local muralist Kerry Bowman, most well-known for her work at The Jazz in Kansas City and its chain locations. When the chil-dren returned from Spring Break, they were welcomed by our new murals. What a beautiful surprise greeted them!
