The wonderful surprise in the last weeks has been the 22 people from the church who have signed up to be tutors in the Fortuna Schools. The Turn-Around Steering team saw that one of the best ways for us to impact the vitality of Fortuna was to use our experience to mentor and so one third of the congregation has volunteered to help in the schools from tutoring math to sorting papers.

September 12 Rally Day and a New Tutoring Program
Twelve children in two classes and another 13 adults kicked off our education program for the year. We redid the Sunday School classrooms, the education gifts for the kick off shower piled up in the back. Seven teachers have volunteers for two teams for two classes for the kids. And the adult have started the first chapters of reflections on "The Shack".
