Casting Vision

The next couple of months I want to share with you some of the vision for the work I would like to do while I am in the neighborhood of Kypseli in Athens, Greece. I will of course be language learning intensely the first 6 months but after that I will be able to do more work with the community center. I hope that you are excited as I am about all the possibilities to share the Gospel and love of Christ. Blessings, Angela

As I have shared before Kypseli has a 50% unemployment rate. This is devastating! This impacts families in such negative ways. Men often feel ashamed and stay out all day with friends instead of helping with family or they leave their families altogether. Women are left working or out trying to find work to provide which often leaves the kids too much time to fend for themselves on the streets all day. These families need hope! Hope that only Jesus can give! 

One of the programs I would like to develop that I believe could help with this is a Professional Development Class. It would have several Modules that would look something like this: Module 1: How to Find a Job; Module 2: How to Build a Resume; Module 3: Interviewing Skills (and How to Dress for an Interview); Module 4: Follow up; Module 5: Typing; Module 6: Leadership Development.; Module 7: Microsoft Office. Some of these we would teach as stand-alone classes but I was thinking for those who completed all 7 modules and had a certain attendance and grade we would have sponsors that would help buy them shoes and call it "Best foot forward program" or something like that.

This is one of the ways we can help address this need and share the love of Christ through the community center. People need hope and having job skills would bring hope. 
 
Important Reminder: 

This Sunday, October 23rd at 8:45am I will have a breakfast presentation time at Champion Presbyterian Church! Food is free provided by my Discernment Team! I will have a Question/Answer time too! All ages are welcome!
Athens City Vision
Out of the ashes of brokenness, God is raising up a people (beyond the city team) to Himself in Athens with a spirit of authenticity, humility, gratitude, mission zeal. By God's grace, the Athens city team incarnates this spirit in order to see an equipped, vibrant, and Christ-centered Church impacting all of society through the hope and power of the Gospel.
