Mighty Oaks Warrior Program Update
Posted: Jun 24 2016
Here's the latest news from Chad and our friends at the Mighty Oak Warrior Program.
God continues to do a great work through Mighty Oaks! It is amazing to be a part of all that is happening and see firsthand the healing and hope that Christ brings to the broken. Here are just a few of the things that we have been a part of recently:
The last several weeks have been incredible for Mighty Oaks. In addition to doing a Men's program, our team traveled extensively engaging our country as to the mission and work of Mighty Oaks.
While sharing across the country what God is doing through Mighty Oaks, we also spread out across our home state of California in honor of Memorial Day. Our team was featured in events in Yuba City, Atascadero, Pismo Beach, Oceanside, and Lake Elsinore. What an incredible day of honoring those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.
We were excited to launch a new video about a couple who came through our programs. Marc and Iris have an incredible testimony of the miraculous restoration that God did in their lives, marriage and family. Battling divorce and drug addiction, they came to Mighty Oaks Programs as a last ditch effort. Hear their incredible story here: https://vimeo.com/165957700
Mighty Oaks Founder, Chad Robichaux has shared his story thousands of times as an example of what God can do. He and his wife Kathy founded Mighty Oaks because of the restoration and hope that God brought to their lives. I Am Second is an organization who helps take the stories of professional athletes, entertainers and everyday people who have overcome adversity in their lives through the healing power of Jesus. Even if you've heard Chad's story, you've never heard it like this:www.iamsecond.com/chad
One of the ways we God has called us to connect with the church is by doing Men's events that utilize core curriculum from our Veteran's Fight Club program. Our sessions include Why Men Need To Fight, Brotherhood and Legacy. We were honored to be asked to come do one of these events at partner church, Atascadero Bible Church in Atascadero, CA. What an incredible response seeing over 250 guys stand up to be the leaders that God called them to be in their marriages, their families, churches and communities!
Another Men's Fight Club- California was held at beautiful SkyRose Ranch on the central coast. We had 22 first time attendees in addition to phase 1 and phase 2 leadership trainees. God did miracles in the lives of these men and we are excited to see them move forward in their lives with new purpose!
Lastly, three of our program alumni, including our National Program Manager, Chris Carlisle had the privilege of traveling to Israel with Bay Area Baptist Church - League City, TX. This was an incredible time for the guys getting to walk in Jesus' footsteps, learn more about his time on earth and to grow their faith. What amazing opportunity!
Thank you for your continued support for all that we do! It is because of the faithful prayer and financial support of our friends across the country that we are able to bring the message of hope to so many. Please keep us in prayer as we continue to reach the brokenhearted.
