The Landing

The Landing

The Landing is a safe place for students (Junior High to High School) to find hope and freedom from the hurts they face in this fallen world. Those hurts may come from verbal and physical abuse, rejection, criticism, betrayal, divorce, failure, depression, or ridicule. Unless our students learn to be honest about the pain and develop healthy strategies to deal with these hurts they may learn unhealthy coping strategies or addictions.

Whether it’s social withdrawal, eating disorders, relationships struggles, depression, entertainment, self-harm, drugs, alcohol, sex, pornography, or some other means of escape these unhealthy coping strategies increase the hurt and pain. At The Landing, we introduce students to the biblical recovery principles that will help them be honest about their struggles and lead them to hope and healing. There is hope and there is healing when we learn to become honest with ourselves, honest with God and someone we trust.

The landing will meet very Friday night at 7:00 upstairs in a classroom.

Compassion Internationals mission is to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name.

It’s a mission about love. Compassion loves God, and demonstrates that love by extending care to others.

They offer programs to the poorest of the poor, to the children in greatest need, without ulterior motive, and devote themselves to helping children of all faiths, cultures, backgrounds and race.

Lenexa Baptist Church is partnering with Compassion International to plant a local church partner in “Las Palmeras”, Marcavelica, Sullana, Piura, Peru.

The people in this community are extremely poor, with an average household income of $183 per month for those who, typically as fishermen. Please pray for the pastor as he and his congregation work to realize their dream of having a new church home.

Missions Testimonies

TESTIMONIES

Engaging People with the Gospel

India

God wanted me to be on this trip, it is not a coincidence, I’m so glad I was able to go.

As we submitted to His authority and to those leading the trip, we saw that God was using each of us every moment for His good whether it aligned with our personal itinerary or not.  He brought together a perfect group of folks for each step along the way, blending us together to carry out His purpose.

For me there was a continued encouragement to live daily life on mission and to encourage other to do the same.  I love being able to join in short term journeys but I find that I don’t want the journey to end when I step off of the plane.  I hope to continue to incorporate the “mission trip” mentality into myself and the lives of my family.

Montreal

I learned that God is nowhere near done with my story and that I need to pursue Him even more.

It doesn’t take a whole lot to bring a conversation back to Christ.

It made me realze that I have a greater purpose with my life and I want to share the love of Jesus with more and more people.

Every conversation you have can be turned into a gospel conversation.

I didn’t know what to expect, but it was great.

Houston (youth trip)

You don’t have to go out of the county to do missions!

God always knows what’s best even if it is not what you wanted at first.

God perfectly orchestrated this trip, we had plans to go somewhere else but He made plans for us to go to Houston.  He is big and faithful and able to accomplish amazing things.

He knew that we needed to serve the people of Houston, He always knows what is best.

I learned that places in the US need a lot of help and that God is there for all families in need.

I learned how easy and important it is to share God’s Word.

I learned that I need to wear more sunscreen and be more outgoing to the people that I’m serving.

Haiti

His presence in in Haiti and the people there are on His heart, He is working and moving through them.

I saw the passion and the energy for the work of the Gospel, I saw in some of the Pastors and our translators and other believers that God has His hands on Haiti.

I learned that I need to be always looking for opportunities to share the Gospel of Christ and to be more intentional.  I need to live with an eternal passion rather than a temporary contentment that is meaningless.

I learned that serving others doesn’t necessarily mean having to do something big. It’s the little things like your smile, words of encouragement, willingness to go the extra mile with others that helps you to clearly share the love of Christ.

Asia

I learned that God has a purpose for me in His Kingdom no matter what is happening in my life.

I learned that God can use us in amazing ways when we are faithful to follow Him.

God is working powerfully through the local missionaries to create an evangelistic and disciple-making culture in Asia.

I saw that anyone with a commitment to serve Him can find ways to serve effectively.

I feel called to be more transparent and public about my faith and my Savior.

I need to trust God rather than myself, I need to be more in prayer and in the Word in the weeks and months that lead up to this trip.  The enemy tries to distract us to diminish our preparation, I need to trust God that He has chosen me to be part of this trip for a specific reason.
