I’m on the board of a non-profit called Mission Agape.  This faith-based organization, based in Midland, does several things but the primary services are:

  • The Backpack Program (every Friday, we deliver bags of food to over 150 elementary students).
  • The Food Pantry (we serve 40-50 families a month at the Renaissance Apartments).
  • Education Classes (every Wednesday we hold a class for the Burmese refugees where we have a devotional, teach English and the US Citizenship test).
We also have a youth group.  I’m one of the youth group leaders.  In addition to teaching life skills, we have some fun along the way.  Our latest project is building rockets!  This is not only a fun project but gives the children a sense of accomplishment.  This weekend, we went out to C.J. Kelly park and had a launch party!
