The Team Arrives in Tulsa

by George Kalopisis | May 8, 2022 11:35 PM

After a long 13+ hour day of driving from Michigan, the team has arrived in Tulsa. 

We are all settled in and getting some good rest tonight so we are ready for a great day of ministry tomorrow. 

YouthWorks Ranch

by George Kalopisis | May 9, 2022 10:28 PM

Today we served the YouthWorks ranch which is located in North Tulsa and serves the youth in that area. We learned about the various educational programs they have in place to serve their community and we were blessed with the opportunity to help with preparing a garden, building a fence, lots of clean up, and rounding up various animals including pigs and chickens. It was a very warm and humid day, but we got a lot accomplished.

Our team used a lot of creativity and ingenuity to build a fence around the garden at The Ranch. Now the new plantings will be protected from the roaming critters.

Wesley Chapel Outreach

by George Kalopisis | May 10, 2022 10:28 PM

Today our team met up at Wesley Chapel and organized flyers to pass out into the surrounding neighborhoods. The flyers are to promote the upcoming YouthWorks summer children’s camp.

We went door-to-door passing out the flyers, having conversations, and praying with the people we met. There were several great conversations and some tears of joy as the community was very excited about the opportunity. Already by lunchtime, three people from our morning efforts registered!

We also dropped off several flyers for the summer camp to many local schools. 

By the end of the day, we had distributed 3,000 flyers and met hundreds of people. The fruit of our efforts will be seen in the coming weeks as the summer camp fills up and the children in the community are blessed by the YouthWorks summer camp.

Back at the Ranch

by George Kalopisis | May 12, 2022 7:04 PM

Today is our last day of ministry and we have a full day ahead of us. 

We split up into several teams to go back to YouthWorks Ranch for several projects. 

The guys here are planting lettuce in the hydroponic greenhouse. The harvest from this greenhouse goes to several local grocery stores where there is a fresh food dessert and not enough local produce.
