Greetings Kairos Family,
I am honored to be serving you as the next team leader for Kairos #63 at Angola scheduled for Thurs., Nov 9 – Sun., Nov 12, 2017.
I am looking forward to this journey of leadership and for those of you who know my story, my life as a christian started with Kairos in February of 2013 on team # 55 inside Camp J.
This wonderful ministry has made such a positive impact on my life and I am grateful for the friendships that have been forged here in Kairos. I will be reaching out to many of you in the coming weeks as we start to build a team for November.
New recruits are always needed to ensure the longevity and health of this ministry. If I can assist you in recruiting, please let me know. So far, 3 new volunteers have been recruited from the Lafayettte area for the Kairos #63 team. One attended DOC training in April and the other 2 will attend the next DOC training that will be held on Saturday July 22, 2017 at South Baton Rouge Church of Christ ,8725 Jefferson Highway Baton Rouge, La 70809. Doors open at 4:30 pm with training from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
Please encourage new recruits for #63, to attend DOC training on July 22.
State budget cuts have led to a substantial decrease in the staff at Angola resulting in an increased workload for remaining staff. The new time required for processing our volunteer forms submitted at the end of DOC training, is now a minimum of 21 days without any unexpected delays.
The DOC training scheduled on October 21, will not allow enough time for processing and clearance of new and existing volunteers for Kairos #63 scheduled for Thurs Nov. 9 – Sun Nov. 12, as our Gate Pass is released the week before we go inside for the Kairos retreat.
To ensure admittance into Angola for #63, attendance of DOC training on July 22 is highly recommended for all new incoming volunteers and past volunteers who need to renew their training. This is not the normal time frame as in the past, however this is a small sacrifice to make for God’s ministry.
I remain deeply committed to Kairos and the Kairos family. Please pray for me and I continue to pray for you.
Peace and Blessings,
