Flourish Ministries is bringing the love and hope of Christ to many nations! Currently, we are working to build a transformational template, in the Baja California region of Mexico, to enable us to continue to help communities all around the globe to Flourish! From Africa and the Appellachion Mountains, the inner-city USA to Indonesia – the Lord desires to see people come onto Him from every nation, tongue, and land, and to see His fullness and a hope and a future!
Be on the lookout as we will soon be launching our Pretty Popsi website, which will provide an opportunity for missionaries, artists, artisans located anywhere in the world to reach an audience and sell their items to support their local ministries. We will tell their stories and give wings to their visions! It’s time to Flourish!
Join us on an outreach trip to Mexico in Summer 2018. Come minister to families with your gifts. Come share your gift or passion – you have no idea whose life you might reach! Or, throw your own Lemons for Love fundraiser! Ask us how!
Flourish Mexico Project
LEMONS FOR LOVE
We began with a lemonade stand! If you would like to host a “Lemons for Love” Lemonade stand to raise money along with your children to benefit orphans in Mexico, please contact us! Encourage a legacy of giving, while spending quality time with your children, teaching valuable skills! We can all change lives – one lemon at a time!
We are grateful to partner with any corporations desiring to partner with helping with the mission of helping uplift others.
While the heart of Flourish was birthed as a regional Hampton Roads magazine in 2010, Flourish International Ministries was a bit of a “surprise” conceived during a fun family summer project with Juliana (11), Victoria, (9), and Oliver (7) after we had heard about kids in Mexico who couldn’t afford summer camp.
The need resonated in our hearts, especially since summer camp was off the table for us that summer. Deciding to turn our “lemons” into lemonade, we watched them learn some important business skills, and have a blast creating marketing ideas, ordering supplies, recruiting friends – ultimately launching a “Lemons for Love” campaign. Basically, a neighborhood lemonade stand with a purpose.
During our journey we learned that camp is actually a HUGE deal for these village children struggling against incredible poverty living in the poor, dusty villages of Mexico. They are often too needed picking strawberries or other crops with their families to have much fun, let alone attend a fun camp. Armed with lots of lemonade, massive amounts of signs, quarters galore and the goal to sending as many kids to camp as possible, (they knew each $3.50 actually paid for the food needed for each extra child to attend camp for a week.)
So, they opened their doors and hailed down every neighbor within shouting distance. J, V, and O, and their sweet friends, raised enough money to sponsor 100 scholarships for children to attend KFN Mexico – bringing fun, hope and Christ encounters to many!
Seeing the joy and love even seemingly small seeds could make, Flourishing Ministries International, a 501C3 ministry was birthed! Drawing upon 20 years working and serving many amazing ministries, and a heart to share the love of God in the nations, we are now bringing love in tangible ways to the impoverished: uplifting His children to thrive and seeing communities transformed by the Love of God.
In summer 2018 we plan to fund three summer outreach camps to Mexico, reaching orphans and those hurt by the recent earthquakes.
We are also funding and launching a small business for the founder of one an orphan outreach in Baja. This impactful ministry desires to be financially self-sustaining. We see business training as a part of a solution to combat poverty, and see a community be transformed. We invite you to be a part of this exciting and unfolding miracle!
