A Note From Patrick
Thank you for another amazing semester in Brownsville! We have had an in an incredible experience in 2017, but we are sad to announce that Hannah and Gabe will be leaving NYC in August during Graffiti 3's annual sabbatical. Hannah has been serving for over 2 years as the Children's Director at G3 and will be attending Southern Seminary in Kentucky in the Fall. Gabe has been serving as our Youth Director and a community minister in Brownsville, and will be moving back to Georgia to continue working in collegiate ministry. These two have been the hands and feet of Graffiti 3's after school program and Wednesday morning breakfast and there will be big shoes to fill as the ministry continues to operate.
As we get ready to send them off into their next adventure, we are very grateful for all of their efforts and faithfulness. They have built upon the foundation created by those before them and we know we will continue to see the effects of their work from the past 2 years in the future.
Welcome the Whaley Family
As we continue to operate as a ministry in Brownsville, we are also excited to share with you that Chad and Briana Whaley and their daughter Ellie will be moving up to NYC in the Fall to be full time ministers at Graffiti 3. The Whaleys will be serving in our weekly community breakfast, children's after school program, and also focusing on more adult ministries that serve the unserved in the neighborhood.
During this transition, we will still have some familiar faces to help continue and expand the ministry. Raul, our do it all community minister, will still be serving at Graffiti 3 alongside the Whaleys and Patrick will continue as interim Director through the rest of 2017. Please pray for Graffiti 3 ministries and the relationships we have built in our community during this transition. Graffiti continues to be called to be a part of Brownsville and meet the needs of the community. We also ask that you continue to pray and financially support this ministry. Thank you!
