Fruit - New Life - Encouragement

New life in Ashland as the yard turns green and first time  children show up. 

Thank You to the businesses and individuals who donated labor and  time to truck loads of dirt and blocks to complete our yard.

Teen Challenge came on a friday evening to share in song and testimony. 

Danny (red cap) attended Crossfire 20 years ago.

We are both excited and encouraged with the new life coming forth all around us. From children accepting Jesus into their lives in Ashand to encounters with Jesus among the students in Ephrata. We are greatly encouraged.

Teen Challenge shared a presentation recently. That night a young lady showed up after an absence of 2 years. God spoke to her through the song and message.

Recently I was able to reconnect with a young man who attended Crossfire back in 1992. It started with a dream, then a phone call from Canada to sharing comfort with several hurting individuals.
God is up to something amazing!

Peace and contentment are two words I think describe our current atmosphere here at Crossfire. Praise the Lord for this moment in time.

HELP NEEDED: A stone mason to repair the top cap of a stone wall in Ashland. Call 717.278.3102 for more information.

Your prayers and financial support are greatly appreciated. Without them we could not share the gospel with this many children. Thank You!

Executive Director

The High School crew relaxing after a fun filled water day event at Crossfire. A tub filled with water and 450 lbs of ice make for a very cold event!

We are grateful for the bonding this crew is experiencing.

Fwd: REAL Life Community Services Summer News

Summer is no time to take off!
When June and July hit, many of us want to just throttle it back and take a break!  I'm no different!  However, barriers that prevent families from overcoming poverty don't take breaks.  Sure the calls for housing seem to lessen, but the homelessness has not gone away, just hiding for a while.  Hunger has not gone away, healthcare needs have not gone away....

We recently filled the vacancy of our Transitional Home with a mom and her children.  The stories we hear make me want to cry.  "What more can we do?!"
I look at a family in poverty as being stuck in a whirlpool.  It takes more than throwing a person a life preserver.  It takes pulling out all the stops and using every resource at our disposal to get them out!

We could not do all that we do with out our Volunteers and Donors!  If you are one of these, thank you so much for your generosity!  We're not slowing down yet.  There's a lot more to do!

We have three main fundraisers every year; our Spring & Fall Banquets and the ExtraGive!  The Summer is usually very sparse time to try refilling our resources.  But we are in need!  If you see the value of what we do, please consider a small donation to keep our efforts moving forward! 
Thanks for your prayers and support!

Siloam Christian Fellowship Blesses Denver

During the week of June 17-22, REAL Life was able to coordinate the exceptional efforts of Siloam Christian Fellowship's youth group with various needs in the Denver Borough.  The group chose to take their summer missions trip and spend it serving REAL Life and the Borough by painting several buildings in the Denver Memorial Park and working on the landscaping of an area widow.  The group consisted of 20 individuals between the ages of 15 and 54 coming from the Goshen, Indiana area.  They were an amazing blessing to our community!  Thank you, Loren and team for your willingness to serve others!  What an example of God's love!
Watch WGAL 8 next week for their first interview with newly formed Northern Lancaster Hub Leaders, Rod Redcay & Penny Talbert!
