18 Jun Celebrating 10 years of ministry
10 years ago a team of three friends and I met on the second floor of my apartment in Portland, Oregon. We prayed and then chatted over our dreams of starting a new ministry that would partner with East Africans in service of the many vulnerable kids in that region. We committed to pursuing a few simple steps and decided to call the new ministry Lahash International. Little did we know that God would take the simple availability and vision of a few friends and me to impact thousands of lives during the past decade! We are humbled by the growth and are grateful for the involvement of hundreds of participants and advocates who have joined us on this rewarding journey.
This year we are celebrating our 10 year anniversary at Lahash! And we have some really exciting ways we want to commemorate this event with you and the rest of our community spread out around the world.
Here’s what you can expect:
• August 2015 – Special Commemorative Issue of our Hope Is Alive magazine
• September 4, 2015 – Formal Celebration Dinner in Portland, Oregon
• September 6, 2015 – Reunion BBQ in Portland, Oregon for current and past Lahash travelers, staff, volunteers, board members, and advocates
• February 2016 – Release of the first feature length Lahash documentary
We hope you can join us in celebrating this important event!
