We have over 100 students enrolled in our Summer Spot program that focuses on Academics in the morning and fun activities in the afternoon.
ABOUT THE WOMEN’S LUNCHEON
The fourth annual Women’s Luncheon was held June 29th at the Minikahda Club. We had 68 women plus 10 young girls attend this year. Guests were treated to a wonderful meal and heard an inspiring message from Annette Bittner. Annette is an alumna and 1991 Young Woman of the Year. She is also a singer, song writer, and artist. She currently serves as the Teen Program Director at HHYD. She talked about trusting the process. God brings different situations into our lives where we can choose to go through it or abandon it. When we allow God to prune us, it helps us mature. Like a plant being replanted in new soil, we have the opportunity for more growth. To date over $34,000 was raised during this event, exceeding the goal of $25,000. We are grateful to God, and everyone who attended. We are looking forward to hosting the event again next year.
Hi I’m Maddie Nimmo! I grew up in Somerset, Wisconsin and I currently live in Roseville. I am going into my Senior Year of college at the University of Northwestern in St. Paul with a major in Elementary Education. Since I am going to be a teacher after I graduate from college, I thought that this would be a great step into my future career working with children! At Hospitality House, I am a Fifth Grade Teacher. I have loved getting to know the kids I have in my class.
My best advice would be to continuously encourage one another with love because you never know how the Lord may speak through you. That’s something that has always stuck with me because you never know what someone else is going through. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 says, “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” That’s a verse that I am trying to live out with my students, friends, and family each day.
A BIG THANK YOU
Thanks to the volunteers from River Valley church who cleaned our building and vans on July 16th. Your help and assistance is very much appreciated!
