Today on Educate For Life, Kevin has as guests Mari Rothman, Dora Breuninger and Chris Alley. Mari Rothman is the Founder of Sonshine Haven, an organization that runs biblical camps and clubs for kids of all ages and backgrounds. Dora Breuninger is on the staff and Chris Alley is a volunteer who helps with the clubs and camps.

The elementary school clubs are called Sonshine Clubs and the middle school clubs are called Higher Ground. The ministry started in 1991 by Mari Rothman with a Sonshine Club at Chase Ave Elementary school. After 26 years, Sonshine Haven now has 43 Sonshine & Higher Ground Clubs.

Sonshine and Higher Ground Clubs are held once a week after school in a classroom for 1 to 1 ½ hours.The clubs include worship, a Bible lesson,  a gospel invitation, memory verse, games, one on one prayer time and snacks. Sonshine Haven also offers other events to club kids and their families during the year, including Life Skills (hands-on learning during spring and summer vacations, held at Sonshine Haven), Cinderella/fella Day, Thanksgiving dinner baskets, Christmas  Adopt-a-Family, Padre Game tickets and other opportunities that God provides.

Everything Sonshine Haven does is free for the kids and families. They depend on volunteers and are funded by donations. If you want to learn more about Sunshine Haven, head over to sonshinehaven.org. If you want to volunteer or donate, you can also do that through their site.
