In the 2022-2023 school year, Avenue of Life in Kansas City worked in all four of the Wyandotte County school districts, serving 2,547 households with essentials such as housing, utilities, classes and food. They provided housing to 88 families, intensive case management to 532 households, and worked with 50 unaccompanied youth at Wyandotte High School who had a final graduation rate of 94.7%. Avenue of Life has 5 stars, an “A” transparency and a 100 donor confidence score in the MinistryWatch database—the highest rating in each category.

A Montana pastor is using his love of coffee to fuel a prayer ministry for others. People have sent him coffee mugs with their state, city or country on it along with a prayer list. Every time Josh Barnhart of Ennis Assembly of God fills a cup, he prays for that area. He says it’s an all-day reminder to pray for “pastors, missionaries, leaders, and churches” and people who need to hear the Gospel.

Convoy of Hope is shipping relief supplies and communicating with multiple local partners in Texas and Oklahoma, where at least two people have died in sweeping wildfires. The fires have spread across more than 1 million acres throughout the two states since it started on Feb. 26. Convoy of Hope has 4 stars and an “A” transparency grade in the MinistryWatch database, and a donor confidence score of 74.
