An ARM Update
January 2014

Dear friends,  

 

Another year has come and gone! We hope you and your family had a wonderful time enjoying each other and all the things God is doing in your lives.  This past year has been exciting at ARM as we watch His goodness in all areas of our ministry. We are also excited for the year ahead as we anticipate even greater things!

This month, we are blessed to share a few of our 2013 highlights.  We are excited to see how God has been working in and through us over the year! Thank you for being such a vital part of our growth and success.

 

Be blessed,

 

Pastor Peter

Bethany Village Highlights MainSTORY



Bethany Village is one of our largest projects at ARM. Some of the many great things that happened throughout the year include:

  • 132 children called Bethany "Home" this year and were given access to family, education, vocational training, health, discipleship and much more
  • 11 children were graduated out of Bethany and successfully resettled back into their communities
  • 3 week-long camps were held to improve the spiritual growth & discipleship of 800 of our sponsored children
