This is the last week for Kids Hope.  I just want to thank all of you that have been praying for the Kids Hope mentors, students, the teachers and staff throughout this year.  What a blessing it is to be able to share God's love to those around us through Kids Hope.  

May you continue to pray for Kids Hope and all those that are part of it.  

Thank you so very much!!

This is the first year that Dave and his student have been meeting together.  Kids Hope will be finished for the year soon, will you pray that Dave and his student have a great end to the year and continue to grow and learn from each other?

Dave and his student love spending time together.  They meet during the lunch break and work mainly on reading.  Dave has seen remarkable improvement in his student's reading ability this year.  The best part of being a part of Kids Hope for Dave, other than seeing improvement in school, is the big smile he gets each week and the hug that he gets when their time together is finished.

Carol and her student need our prayers this week.  They have been meeting together once a week for the last 6 years.  They have continued to grow in their mentor/student relationship over the years and enjoy being with each other.  Will you pray that they have a great few last weeks together and continue to build a strong friendship?  Carol and her student look forward to the time when they meet each week, will you remember them in your prayers that the last few weeks are just as great as the last 6 years have been for them?

Carol has been a part of the Kids Hope program for many years.  She has been with her current student since elementary school and has now been in the middle school for the last few years.  Her and her child typically work on math and when they are finished with work they love playing cards.  

Over the years Carol has had other students and she has also been a prayer partner for another mentor.  Carol has a gift with children and she has been using that gift in the lives of students who need her.

Kerri and her Kids Hope child have been together for three years.  Throughout those years Kerri has seen many changes.  The most noticeable change is that her child has been coming to school more consistently- especially on those days that Kerri comes.  That is one of the many benefits of the Kids Hope program.  Will you pray that the year continues to go well for Kerri and her child, that they grow in their mentor/student relationship?

Kerri has been with her child for the last three years.  Her and her student in the past have gotten together and worked on school work and when there was time they would play a game.  This year has looked a little different for the two.  When Kerri comes this year she is with her child in the classroom working on writing.  Her student loves that there is someone special that comes in each week.

This is Jeremy's first year being part of Kids Hope and this is his student's first year also.  Will you pray that they both have a wonderful year end together and that they continue to grow and learn from each other?

Jeremy and his student enjoy meeting with each other every week.  They typically will do math homework and when there is time they love to play strategy games.  Jeremy's child is a clever kid and enjoys beating him at games.   Every week his child is eager to see him, smiles a lot and loves having the one on one.

This is not Willow's first year with Kids Hope but, it is her first year with a new student.  Willow has been meeting with her Kids Hope child about 23 times this year.  They have built a strong mentor/student relationship over the school year.  As the year is coming to a close will you pray for Willow and her child that they may continue to enjoy each others presence, that they continue to be a blessing in each others life, and that the rest of the Kids Hope year goes well.

Willow has done Kids Hope in the past and this was her first year with a new student.  She enjoys being a part of Kids Hope and being the light of Jesus to her child.  Her and her student like to read together and play games when school work is finished.

  As the weather gets nicer, days get longer, school gets a little harder for everyone to concentrate on.  Will you continue to pray for the teachers, staff, and students this week?  Please continue to pray that they may finish the year strong.

Kids Hope is winding down for the year also.  Please keep all of the mentors and their students in your prayers.  It is a highlight for the students who are part of Kids Hope that they get to see their mentor every week and the mentors are a big part of their life.  Please pray that when Kids Hope is done for the year that the students have a great rest of the school year and summer.

This is the last week for Kids Hope.  I just want to thank all of you that have been praying for the Kids Hope mentors, students, the teache...
