It’s all about churches saying YES and living in obedience to reach the world with the good news of God’s love and presence. We have an exciting opportunity to come together and serve Los Angeles in the love of God! Pasadena Foursquare Church is hosting Wow Jam LA Mission Week. Wow Jam International (Winning Our World) is a ministry that has been serving the poorest and roughest cities for over 20 years.

What is a Wow Jam?!
Imagine a FREE huge block party filled with music, laughter, food, games, prizes and more, thrown in honor of those who live in the poorest and most violent neighborhoods around the United States! That is a WOW JAM! The strategy is simple: mobilize volunteers, churches, businesses and organizations to love people in practical ways like giving out groceries and hot meals, providing haircuts, fixing bikes, makeovers, family photos, raffle prizes, games and more! We do this to share God’s love and message of hope and purpose for every person! The best part is it’s COMPLETELY FREE to ALL who come!
LA Mission Week
Wow Jam week is about reaching Los Angeles with the love of God! It’s open to ALL AGES to serve and perfect for people who have never joined a missions team before as there is great training and preparation. We are inviting churches to come together to serve Los Angeles! There is something for everyone! You can serve at a one day Wow Jam or come for the week where we have training times, follow up home visits, baptisms and plenty more! We will be reaching over 15,000 people with the love of God! We serve a diverse group of people. We have a great need for spanish speakers as many that we reach do not speak english. Wow Jam LA Mission Week has been reaching Los Angeles for 22 years. This consistency and faithfulness has given Wow Jam a deep impact in these cities, with officials and most of all in the lives of people. It truly is a life changing day for all because everybody needs to be told they are special and that God loves them!
We need hair cutters, people who can do bike repair, and more! Donate or volunteer today! Many booths and ways to serve – we’d love to talk with you! Contact Lacey Diaz – email@example.com.

The planning for the next district Haiti trip is already under way. This will the 4th district team to embark on a week long mission to Haiti. Our intent on forming missions teams from members of different churches within the district is to ignite interest in missions and educate people regarding mission work and cross cultural experiences. These are great opportunities for churches to learn how to get more personally involved in missions and for those who are interested in becoming full time missionaries, it’s a great starting point. Check out our blog for some stories and pictures.
Training for our teams is intense and meticulous, with a strong emphasis on cross-cultural education, spiritual and physical preparedness. Here’s the info you need:

Estamos ya a la puerta de nuestro tercer Intensivo de Misiones, ¡qué gran bendición y privilegio!. Esto sin duda es una confirmación de que poco a poco estamos fortaleciendo la alianza de pastores, la gente de las Iglesia de nuestro distrito con los misioneros Cuadrangulares.
Al igual que en los Intensivos de Misiones anteriores, este IM2012 será un día donde escucharemos a los misioneros y líderes nacionales que están en el frente de batalla. Adicionalmente, tendremos clips de vídeo, sesiones de discusión con Preguntas & Respuestas, en donde los pastores y miembros de la iglesia descubriremos cómo podemos personalmente conectarnos con Misiones Cuadrangulares y aprender lo que podemos hacer juntos.
En el Intensivo de Misiones 2012 “Juntos” vamos a escuchar de primera mano lo que Dios está haciendo en África, Asia Oriental, Sudeste de Asia y Haití de algunos de los misioneros FMI que trabajan en esas regiones. Tendremos los siguientes temas en los Talleres: “Cómo convertirse en un misionero Cuadrangular”, “Misiones Urbanas”, “Creciendo Localmente, yendo globalmente” y “convertirse en una Iglesia Misionera”.

We are now looking towards our third Missions Intensive, what a great blessing and privilege. This definitely is an affirmation that step by step we are reinforcing the the partnership of pastors and people of the Pacific Coast and Valleys churches with Foursquare missionaries.
Just like the previous MI’s, this MI2012 will be a one day intensive, hearing from missionaries and national leaders who are on the front lines. Additionally, by video clips, breakouts and Q&A sessions, pastors and church members will discover how we can connect personally to Foursquare missions and learn what we can do together.
At MI2012 Together! we will hear first hand what God is doing in Africa, East Asia, Southeast Asia, and Haiti from some of the FMI missionaries serving in those regions. Breakouts will cover these topics and more: “How to become a Foursquare Missionary”, “Urban Missions”, “Growing Locally to Go Globally” and “Becoming a Missions Sending Church”.

In June, New Heart Foursquare – Altadena, CA – sent a missions team to La Gloria, Mexico. New Heart has partnered with this Foursquare church in Mexico and assisted in their VBS and helped with the expansion of the sanctuary. This was a great time of fellowship with Pastor Henry Campos, and the team was able to see all the work this church is doing in the La Gloria community, which is just outside of Tijuana.
