Fall, football and, you guessed it…the Walk for Life are all in the air! I am praying for you and your families as children and grandchildren head back to school. May the Father show them favor and allow them influence with their peers! CareNet is abuzz with preparation for the upcoming Walk, which will be on Saturday, September 8th at 9:00 am. One of the things I love most about the Walk is that it is a great time for the family. We will have food, fellowship and tons of fun while we unite together as the body of Christ in support of life and in honor of our Savior Jesus Christ. We would love for you to join us!

It is easy to participate! The walk form is available for download at: www.choosehope.com. Simply ask your friends and family to sponsor you with a one-time, tax-deductible gift. You don’t need to collect money. Simply fill out your form with all of your sponsors’ information and we will take care of the rest. Bring your form with you on September 8th or, if you are unable to attend, you can simply mail your form to us at PO BOX 50342, Amarillo, TX 79159.

 The Lord continues to do amazing things through the ministry. In the first half of 2018 alone, CareNet has had over 6,000 interactions with clients! This year, 452 pregnant women initially intended to abort, and of those, 442 had a change of heart and chose life for their babies. Over 22,000 students participate in our mentoring programs each month. Most importantly, 75 people have accepted Christ as Lord and Savior in 2018!

CareNet is a safe haven and refuge from the storm for those in crisis. CareNet is offering mentoring programs to students across the region. We believe that our youth can be influencers and have a Kingdom impact on their peers and campuses. We are committed to sharing the gospel with all who come through our doors and to showing them the love of Christ, which has the ability to change lives forever! But there is more to do and we are seeking the heart of God and asking Him to continue to use our ministry to the fullest to reach people for the Kingdom.

If you are unable to participate in the Walk yourself, would you consider sponsoring me? There are several ways for you to be a sponosor. Simply shoot me an email cgibbs@carenetamarillo.org, go to our website www.thehopechoice.com and click “Donate” you can list the name of the person you would like to sponsor in the notes section, or you can give us a call at 806-354-2288. CareNet has been life changing for me, as well as, thousands of others. I want to see our community changed by the fullness of His grace! Please join me!

 My love and thanks to you in advance, it is my honor to serve with you!
