Washing Cars with Joshua Station

To raise money for the youth to go to camp, Joshua Station had a car wash. Mile High Ministries invited their supporters to get their car wash to help raise support. Here are a few pictures from the wash...

In only 4 hours, we raised over $500 for the youth to go to camp!!! Hope you all are having a great day! Thank you for your continued love and support.

New Beginnings

We have been having a blast with our friends at Joshua Station. Spring is here, babies are being born, the children have spring fever (running jumping and acting like little monkeys) and families are continuing in the journey into stable housing. Some of the families we have gotten to know have moved into stable housing, others are in the process of moving, and new families are moving in. Change is continually happening in the community at Joshua Station.
Last Thursday, we had the privilege to be apart of a Spring Fundraiser in support of Joshua Station. Mile High Ministries invited all their supporters and the community to come to a community theatre that was performing the show OKLAHOMA! Matt and I mingled with supporters while they enjoyed appetizers which were sponsored by a local caterer, helped by passing cowboy hats for donations, and enjoyed the show. The goal for the night was to raise $50,000 and the goal was met! The Mile High supporters believe in the vision of transitional housing and gave abundantly for a great cause.

It is a privilege to be apart of the community of Joshua Station. Thank you for your continued love and support during this season of training. May you be blessed abundantly for your willingness to give to Martin Missions Inc.

With Love,

Matthew and Wendy Martin
