May 26 was a wonderful day to “treat” the entire staff at Colonial Hills Elementary School to a bar-b-que lunch. Thanks to your generous giving, we were able to give away over 30 gift cards and 30 gifts to deserving faculty as an End-of-Year thank you for a job well done during the 2022/23 school year. There were smiles and laughter, sighs of relief, and a spirit of anticipation for the summer break. We ended the day with prayer for the summer ahead.
Thank you for praying for One Way International and for those with whom we serve! This month we want to share about some of the amazing students with whom we work in the local area.

November and December were great months of ministry at the school and apartments! Students, families, and school staff were reminded of the real reason and blessings of the season of Christmas. The nativity was presented at the school and apartments. Bibles were given out as well as gifts. The gospel and an invitation to receive Christ were given. Teen Time students were excited to share the story of the birth of Christ in word and action. Jesus Christ was proclaimed!
Our annual Kids Club—Gifts of Love Christmas Celebration happened November 29th. It was a wonderful day! From packing gift baskets, to loading and setting up for the day, to the acting out of the nativity story, choosing gifts, doing crafts, and eating pizza, the students enjoyed themselves immensely. There were cheers of joy when we told the students they were going to get to choose a gift for their families and have pizza!
Fall and the holiday season are upon us! At One Way International that means lots of outreach activity!
Kids Club began September 20th !
We have a delightful team and group of students this year! The team includes 20 members and we have 85 students registered with more registrations still coming in. We look forward to a year of rich learning of Old Testament Bible lessons and books of the Bible. Please be in prayer for many to understand the gospel and receive Jesus Christ as Savior and for much growth in those students who have already believed in Jesus.
Teen Time is going strong this Fall!
