Meet Ben!!!

We are excited to tell you some good news!
Meet Ben Reitz! 
He started as an intern August 23rd and we are very happy to welcome him to the Aim Right family. 

Here's some questions we asked him so you can get to know him better. 

When's your Birthday: 
September 16th

How many siblings do you have? 
I have 5 siblings, an older brother, 2 older sisters, and a younger sister.

Where are you from and have you lived there all your life? 
I'm from Remington, VA and have lived there since I was two. 

What's your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do? 
Football and volleyball are my favorite sports. I also enjoy hunting, fishing, and hanging out with friends.

The first time you visited Phoenix was with Dayspring Mennonite Youth Group. What did you think about Phoenix?
I really enjoyed my first time out here. I was definitely interested in coming back. 

Was the choice difficult to become an Intern?  
It really wasn't difficult to make the choice. God spoke to me through 6 different people in 2 weeks time, telling me I should come back as an intern. 

Now that you are settled in, any special prayer request you would like friends and family to help you pray for? 
Pray that I will continue to do well with the kids and youth and that I can really show Jesus' love to them.

What is your goal as an Aim Right Intern: 
My goal as an intern is...
1. Make a positive impact on at least one child's life.
2. Learn enough about youth ministry so that I can one day start a ministry of my own. 

Welcome to the Aim Right Family Ben!!

Ben's first night at Kingdom Kids. Our kiddos had some questions for him. 

Aim Right North Location. Ben will be serving with Community Nights along with helping to lead during Impact Night.

Please help us pray for Ben as he takes a new role here in Phoenix. 
- Wisdom 
- Connection with kids and youth
- Pray for this experience to ignite in his heart a passion for youth ministry. 
- Pray for God to show him the positive impact he is doing.

Farewell Mast Family

Today we got to say goodbye to the Mast family. We celebrated their time with us and got to pray over them for safe travels.

Mast Family, 

Thank you for pouring your hearts out to our kids at Aim Right North. We appreciate you all immensely for taking the time and investing in our ministry. May God be with you all as you settle in your new home in Montana and bless you with many good memories there. Know that you have a family in Aim Right and you will continue to be in our prayers. 

Mast Family. Tory holding Adelynn (L), Enric (R), big sister Keisha (BL) with Sabrina (BR),

Very Much!

 You All Will Be Dearly Missed!!!!

Ocean Commotion

Based off of Noah and the Ark, Ocean Commotion was directed to teaching our young audience to give thanks, trust in God, be brave and strong in faith, along with keeping Gods commandments.

We split up our VBS in to two weeks. First week we had our Kingdom Kids group having Foothills Fellowship youth group from South Carolina taking over with all 4 stations. The second week we had Kalona Mennonite youth group from Iowa helping out with our second group that consisted of Garfield neighborhood kids.

Our days were a full schedule for the two hours we had our kiddos. Both opening and closing assemblies had dancing, praising, and praying for a good day and our youth to take to heart the lessons being taught. We split up into 4 groups: Sharks, Puffins, Sea Otters, and Dolphins. Each station being 25 min log. Thanks to Ann Roby, our Children's Ministry Director, for doing an amazing job with the prep work of all our decorations and our Summer Intern Aleisha with our Student Leaders Lala, Pati, and Francis for helping set up. We really felt like we were at sea!!! 😊

Kids had soooo much fun and enjoyed the company of these two amazing groups. We feel very blessed that they came out and showed our kiddos the love of God through these two weeks. Can it be next year yet so we can do it all over again??

Lets check out some pics:
