i-Care Summit Update

FB-banner-3

Our first annual i-Care Summit on the Local/Global Food Crisis was a huge success! We had speakers and guests fly in from all over the country, and also had several local Treasure Valley organizations represented. One participant captured this quote from Friday morning's speaker, Robyn O'Brian, who said,

"The food you eat acts as either poison or medicine to your body. This is the first time in history where our sons and daughters have a shorter life expectancy in this country than previous generations."

People left the Summit inspired, informed, and encouraged to continue in their passions for providing their families and local communities with fresh sustainable food. Pastor Tri Robinson encouraged the church to care about these issues as we continue to provide hope and compassion amidst poverty, for we have all have been commissioned by Jesus to feed the hungry. Tri was blessed to have such amazing speakers teach the topics with authority and was thankful that we had so many online viewers around the world.  Will Frasier, filmmaker from the UK, was able to capture the whole Summit for his upcoming film as well, which will highlight evangelicals positive impact on environmental issues. So THANK YOU for your prayers and your attendance as we came together and sought out the heart of Jesus.

Meet the new i61 Director, Terra Montford

In June, 2015, the i-61’s Founding Director, Tri Robinson, retired from vocational ministry and transitioned the i-61 leadership to Terra Montford as the new i-61 Director.

Terra was part of the founding team of i-61.  Prior to that, she was the Director of VCOM (Vineyard College of Missions) and the Director of SOBA (School of Biblical Action) at Vineyard, Boise. Terra has been in missions work for the past 15 years traveling to more than 23 countries.  Her passion for the bible and love of people is the driving force of her heart for ministry.

Terra grew up 10 minutes from the Anaheim Vineyard where John Wimber founded the Vineyard Movement.  After graduating Westmont College in Santa Barbara with a Bachelors in English she joined YWAM (Youth With a Mission) in Montana where she felt called to serve in full-time ministry.  During that time, she helped create  productions based on Don Richardson’s missions-focused book, “Peace Child.”  God then brought a like-minded man with a heart for Jesus into her life, and the two got married.  Michael and Terra began their life together in 2006, and started working at the Boise Vineyard Christian Fellowship in Idaho.  They love the Vineyard and are happy to raise their son (Jude) and daughter (Lucy) in such an active community of faith.  Terra is excited about the future of i-61 and believes God will continue to use it as a vessel for hope amidst crisis.

Nicaragua Training Experience

Women 4 Women

Women for Women – W4W – Last fall, the i-61 leaders had a vision to invite specialty teams to Nicaragua for the Holistic Missions Training Experience.  Women and children are generally the most impacted by poverty in the developing world and are vulnerable in so many ways.  In response to this, a women-only team was formed from Vineyard Boise and they arrived on May 21. This timing was special, because May 30 is Mother’s Day in Nicaragua.  Our team completed the training on the 7 areas of Global Crisis, with a specific emphasis on the impact of women.  During our experience times, we had several opportunities to work with women-focused ministries.  We had an opportunity to make Mother’s Day Cards with women living in a Cancer Care Hospital and bless them with hygiene kits that were donated from our home church.  With the help of awesome translators, we also prayed individually with each woman in the hospital.  Another opportunity was to assist with a women’s bible study near the dump. A  Mother’s Day Celebration was planned for the day we were there.  A few of our team members helped serve lunch to 120 women and each woman received a gift bag.  The women had worship and a message and ended with prayer. To make this bible study possible, the rest of our team and the Isaiah House Staff entertained their children, over 100 of them.  They met in a vacant lot and performed a skit, sang, made Mother’s Day cards and played games, for nearly 2 hours. 

Our team has returned with a new world view and a hunger to make a difference in our own lives and the lives of the women and children we encounter every day.
