This weekend the TN Movement took Love to the streets in downtown Chattanooga. Even though it was blustery and cold, the members of the V2H church, TN Movement, spent Valentine’s Day downtown serving the homeless and poor. Bringing out coats and warm clothing to give away, they also distributed roses as another token of love. Vision 2 Hear is very excited about what God is doing through the TN Movement and how they are living out the gospel message. Continue to pray for them as they prepare to move into their own facility. Here are a few pictures from the weekend courtesy of Mandy Alexander .

Also over the weekend, we had our Love Feast with a few people taking part of the challenge from home. The event has raised some funds for El Salvador and hopefully by the end of the month we will have collected all the funds and I can inform you then of how much we will be sending down to help children whose families are involved in gangs as well as our deaf friends with their schooling. Thanks for participating and helping us out. We have another Love Feast 30-hour famine occurring in Havelock, NC over March 4-5.

2016-02-12 13.29.03AWAKE INDIA

I leave for Awake India tomorrow afternoon. The trip will take about 26 or so hours and have me there for about 2 weeks. It really only comes out to about 10 days on the ground once you remove all the travel time.

This will be my 3rd trip to Vijayawada visiting our partners in ministry. A few of the goals for this trip are to host a WAVE Sign Team conference. One of the new things we hope to try this time is to actually SKYPE with some of our leaders and friends in the USA during the conference, adding more teachers and instruction.

The trip will also allow me to make plans and discuss details about the summer camp week we intend to host in August as an outreach to the villagers and orphans. We have to get the location approved, begin discussing the “marketing” and follow-up plan.

One final thing this trip will allow is for me to be able to get more ground work done in what needs to happen for us to establish a radio station from the church and begin broadcasting by the early September. Please keep these things in your prayers as we seek to advance the work with SAC Ministries.

In El Salvador here’s a little of what is happening from a post from Jorge:

Almost there…..
The blessings come by the privilage and honor of serving others!

The adventure to make it to the village started at 11am! The mothers and children’s team made it there already, and going back home already! They had a great time! Me, on our way for a youth workshop about our Identity in Christ, Boundries and More….!
And a movie sleepover Whooohooooo! Some of us remain Ricardo Melendez, others abandoned us right Christopher Melendez????
Also thanks to vision 2 hear and our beloved donors we will provide school materials for the special childhood development program that the youth coordinates for the infants on sundays!!!

A WAVE GOODBYE

vision 2 hear new wave lgo white

The WAVE Team of New Vision Church had its final concert last night. For the last 7 years the WAVE team has been sharing music, performances and service through New Vision Church in Fayetteville, GA. It is with fond memories that we say goodbye for now. Many of the team members have now grown up and many have other commitments in life now that prohibit continued attendance/practice. So for now we are taking at break at that location.

The concert included many highlights with several new songs being performed. Added to the growing repertoire of V2H songs was Our Time Is Now, Wake, Break Every Chain and George brought back an old one in I’m Not Alright. A couple of crowd favorites were also performed: Lay Me Down, Monster and Radiator.

Another special highlight was the recognition of the seniors for this year. V2H recognized three this year: Casey Palicki from Pike County, GA, Holly Roberts from Loganville, GA and Carl Gallo from Miami, Fl. There was a special slideshow for them, which can be viewed here: Seniors 2015. V2H also took a moment to recognize the leadership of Markie Love.

Markie has been part of V2H for almost 8 years. She started at Community Christian School in Stockbridge GA as a freshman in high school and now she is a senior in college. Over the years Markie has lead the team, working with the church and coordinating events and teaching music. On June 23 she will join us on her mission trip out of the country as she goes to South Korea!

Thanks to the New Vision WAVE “Freaks” for all of great memories and wonderful times through the years! You will not be soon forgotten and we know that wherever you go, you will be the “sign”, a living breathing Vision 2 Hear, in Jesus’ name.
