Extra Mile in Arizona

Posted on: July 22, 2014

Extra Mile Ministries, was in  Arizona participating in the 4th of July Celebrations in both Prescott and Prescott Valley. Judith, Jen and Alan, along with their canine companions, Vando and Suzie from Trinity Lutheran Church in Prescott Valley provided face painting during the outreach at the church. In addition to face painting, they provided the youth of all ages with the “Extra Mile Ministries” stick on badge. The badges were a real hit with those in attendance. In addition a limited number of wrist bands were handed out. The event, open to all, was an excellent opportunity to provide information about EMM, founded by Pastor Ralph Buchhorn eleven years ago. Suzie and Vando, locally trained crisis response canines provided the bridge to communicating this unique ministry. The event filled the parking lot and adjacent vacant property with vehicles of those in attendance.
