Good morning all FOCUS Inside Instructors! We would love to have a gathering time for refreshment, debrief, and investment on December 1 at the FOCUS Office (9:00-11:30 am).
Shawn will be leading this time and will be asking what's working well/needs improvement, collecting testimonies of impact, and sharing FOCUS' heart for the time between the semesters. Of course, all of this will be taking place over coffee and donuts! We sure hope you will be able to attend.
Eagle Rock Registration is Open!
The Eagle Rock Retreat at the Eagle Rock Retreat Center just outside of Maryville is how FOCUS starts off the year. We would challenge you to prayerfully consider attending. This year we will be spending the weekend turning our eyes upon Jesus in the midst of great community. This is not an event to be missed.
From Executive Director, Shawn Stutz
"When people ask me why I do what I do for a living, here is the reason! It's the miracles, the new beginnings, the astounding hope, and my FOCUS family."
This story below is just ONE of many miracles I and so many others get to see. Plus, I'm starting to think miracles are not the events alone. I believe miracles ARE the MEN and WOMEN for which FOCUS has the privilege to minister. And by FOCUS, I mean the wonderful staff we have and the hundreds of volunteers that serve so faithfully both behind and beyond the walls.
"The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy." ~ Psalm 126
"Let me start by saying all glory and praise go to God because without him this miracle could not have happened! So I went to court today to talk about getting my $11,500 fines and fees for my criminal charges that I am guilty of committing reduced to a payable amount.
