Thanks for taking a few minutes out of your day to catch up with YOKE and to keep us in your prayers. As the Apostle Paul said to the believers in Philippi, “Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God. Whenever I pray, I make my requests for all of you with joy, for you have been (our) partners in spreading the Good News about Christ from the time you first heard it until now.”

As always, I am so excited about the work that YOKE is doing to develop young leaders. (We also call this “disciple making.”) You’ll read about two more of those gifted young leaders in this month’s letter.

I’m also excited to let you know that YOKE now has a Spanish language landing page. We are concerned for the growing Hispanic community in many of our neighborhoods and we’re working hard to connect with them better. In addition to intentionally recruiting more bilingual volunteers, we’re also translating some of our materials into Spanish and this page is just part of that effort.

Don’t forget about the upcoming YOKE Banquet, September 7 at 6:30 pm at Bridgewater Place. For all the details and registration, visit our banquet page. We hope to see you there as we celebrate all that God is doing through the ministry of YOKE.
