LION Players Kona Mission 2018

On January 4, 2018, the LION Players (an Outreach Ministry Team of SLAM Academy) received an invitation that felt much like the invitation Jesus gave Peter after a long night of fishing, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch... And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking...So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them” (Luke 5:4-6).

I know it's been a while since you have heard from us at SLAM Academy. We have taken time off to seek the Lord and His direction for us. In the mean time our sister ministry, LION Players, has been presented with an amazing opportunity.
Word By Heart YWAM (Kona, HI) has invited LION Players to partner with them for 3 months to create a musical based on Creation and the books of John and Revelations. This musical will be taken around the world proclaiming the Good News of Jesus and His great love for us.
They need help getting to Kona. They have a fundraiser planned for March 9 (more information is attached). Would you consider joining us for this fun event? It's going to be a great night!

This is our last time at Leggett this summer and last time with Mr. K teaching at SLAM. He shared his heart, which is God's heart for the kids - " You are somebody, you are unique and you are loved". Please pray that this message resonates in their hearts. Also please pray for Mr. K as he heads to Chicago at the end of the summer to pursue dance. www.slamacademy.org

I am so proud of these young ladies. They worked hard today and together choreographed a song to show parents and friends next week at our last class. We prayed for God to give us the same abilities He gave Bezalel (through His Spirit) to device artistic designs for the tabernacle (Exodus 31). It was awesome!
And on a side note - they thought I should have a pony tail! Ha! www.slamacademy.org

"Do you know how high the heavens are above the earth?" I asked the class. Many different answers but the point is it's so high we cannot measure it. - “For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;”
