Winter/Spring 2015

Greetings in the name of our Commander in Chief, Jesus Christ!

Despite my best efforts, 2015 is passing by at lightning speed. My intention is always to have the newsletter out earlier than it actually happens! Know that even when I am remiss in my correspondence – phone calls, texts, emails, newsletters - your family's are never far from my thoughts and prayers.

One big change for 2015 concerning Challenge I want to make everyone aware of is that we will be offering Extreme and Basic. Challenge Basic is our cornerstone. Extreme is an alumni-only event, please see details below. It has been a few years since we have hosted Extreme so our Staff is very excited for the opportunity!

Challenge Extreme

Embark on a Great Adventure.  

Are you one of the few stouthearted men who can answer the call to Challenge Extreme?  Before you lay many physical tasks and spiritual challenges.  You will be pushed to your limit and beyond.  Yet by the grace of God, I trust that you will show yourself to be an indefatigable man of strength and honor.  Pray that God will use this time to continue to conform each of us into the image of Christ.

This course expands on the experiences of BASIC and further builds the young man physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and relationally. EXTREME teaches advanced levels of rappel, Land Navigation, firearm safety, self-protection, medical, survival. In addition to building relationships, learning Bible verses and skills that will draw them close to each other and to God.

This six-day course places the specialists into a task force. The Task force engages in mission scenarios.  The students rotate through the roles of leader, follower, observer, in order to build a more cohesive unit. The missions they encounter will require the student to rely on their God, and their teammates to be successful. The specialists are truly pushed to their limits. 

This is an alumni event.

In order to QUALIFY for EXTREME you must:

Be at least 16 years old

You must have graduated BASIC.

THANK YOU  Spotlight:  We receive many letters and emails of thanks from our students and their families.  I thank you for your support and faithfulness.

Our largest truck “STORM-e” (Specialist Transport Or Recruit Mobilization equipment) is back in action.  An anonymous Good Samaritan has paid the bill for the repair shop to install the engine.  Three days after she was returned to the Timothy group fold, she was used to move a family’s household goods.

Through the fall and winter months a local business owner donated numerous items: Military tent, industrial shelving, forklift, one man lift, and pallets

The Timothy Group has been blessed with free warehouse space.  Unfortunately, that can mean short notice to relocate when the free space gets rented. A big thank you to the 27 volunteers who helped with not one, but three, relocations this past summer and fall!  This last move was to a temporary location and this leads to our needs paragraph on the next page.

Warehouse space or funds for leasing:  2000-3000 square feet of permanent space is needed to house the valuable resources with which God has blessed us.

Truck fuel and oil leak: “Blanche”, our one-ton pick-up requires an expense engine repair.  We need repairs as soon as possible.
