Our mission moves forward.
The Tokata Youth Center is thriving.
The daily blessing of "busting at the seams" is encouraging yet challenging. The tribe generously provides space in a Tribal building for the Tokata Youth Center meals and programing to take place. Each day the meals are prepared off site and then brought into our current facility.
The dedicated Tokata Youth Center Staff do a fantastic job serving the youth as best as they are able within this very limited space, but a new, permanent facility is much needed and will impact generations!!
There is land and a plan.
There are very few available properties in Fort Thompson suitable for a youth center. Well, God is so good, the owner of the most suitable property agreed to sell. The second part of the equation was having funds to purchase it. God provided a very generous donation through a partner and friend of the ministry associated with Ashworth Road Baptist Church in West Des Moines, IA. The land purchase was finalized on December 30th, 2016!
We wanted to share this exciting news with you now, allowing you to share in the excitement and allowing you to praise God and glorify his name with us. This is definitely a time of rejoicing.
