In our house, Easter morning is wholly unlike any other morning all year. We wake up at 4 AM, disoriented and not yet very joyful. The cat is displeased that we woke him up instead of the other way around. As we drive through the quiet city and turn on lights at church, I like to think about the women who went to see Jesus believing he was still in…

In Perfect Faithfulness

A review of 2018 Maranatha Missions Trips

“Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.” —Isaiah 25:1 

Please be encouraged and join Maranatha in praising God for loving and teaching us this summer as we served on various missions teams. Thank you, Tenth, for your love, prayer and support for all of us! Here are…

To Our Seniors:

I want to congratulate you on behalf of Tenth. We are so proud of you and want you to know how much you are loved! At this time of transition in your lives, let me encourage you going forward to always make the worship of God your highest priority in life. Continue in what you have learned of the Lord, pursuing him in all truth…

How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked. —Psalm 82:2-4

Here in this Psalm we hear God delivering judgment on the 'gods' for their failure to use their power and positions…

 

Please pray for our Maranatha team heading for the Dominican Republic, July 15 - 24, on our summer missions trip. We will be living in very different conditions than we're used to!

The team will be working alongside our Global Partners, the Cedeño's, on various projects on Palo Alto mountain with Amada and Ramona who live there. We will be helping with construction projects…

I have always enjoyed Maranatha’s retreats, and this year was no exception. The speaker for the Senior High Retreat this year was Mr. Kenyatta Rush.

His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness—2 Peter 1:3.

One night during my senior year of high school, I remember standing in the kitchen with my parents as I faced the reality of the cost of college. Instead of giving me instructions on financial aid or loan information, they told me first…

 

The 2016 Maranatha Buffalo missions trip was a hard example of a city in poverty and also a very humbling experience. On this trip the team had the opportunity and privilege to serve the people in the community in many ways, from creating beds for a vegetable garden and constructing a mural to running the community barbeque at the Buffalo Vineyard Church. We were able to hear…

“God will do with you what you allow him to do in you.”

Recently I found this inscription by my grandmother in her old Bible: “God will do with you what you allow him to do in you.” And while God doesn’t need our consent to work in or through us, it is yet…

 

Our Maranatha "Mission Controllers" have prayed, planned, and launched!

 

The fourth floor of the Delancey Building has become much quieter.  That's because the Maranatha 2016 summer team leaders finished their intense and energetic planning that took place here over most of June and are now at the camps, seeing if their plans are working or in need of any mid-flight corrections.
