CONCERT BRINGS 'BREAKTHROUGH' TO CHAFFEY HIGH SCHOOL
Last Saturday, March 1st, 2008, 300 students and families gathered together at Chaffey High School in Ontario for a concert named Breakthrough but what they received was so much more than music. The night started out with High School local band 'His Crew'. The hosting organization's leader Rick Reyna of Rallys For Christ was giving out giftcards to various places. Also rocking the stage were Riverside's finest, Imisi, and Anaheim's very own The S.O.G. Crew. The message the people received was one of encouragement and change. Their hearts were revolutionized towards community unity and peace; standing up for peace in their lives and schools; and love for all mankind. Thank you Ontario for coming out to be a part of the begining of a revolution at Chaffey High School. Thank you Rallys For Christ for putting the event on for the people. Thank you Church of Upland and Pastor
Escobedo for allowing us to be a part of your vision for change in your community.
God bless, DJ Siren
A SATURDAY OF SUCCESS FOR BANNING GANG AND VIOLENCE INTERVENTION RALLY
Saturday, March 1st, 2008, youth and adults got a treat as performances by MC Blvd and S.O.G. Crew set the atmosphere for personal life changes at the Gang and Violence Intervention Rally at Res Recording Studio in Banning, CA. A surprise visit from Bigg Slice, world renown car maker from South Central Los Angeles really encouraged the people. Bigg Slice has been highly recognized for his production of cars for Snoop Dogg. At the event, Bigg Slice rolled up in Snoop's personal traveling studio and spoke to the people about his life and how God gave him a second chance to make a difference in the world through his talent of making custom cars. The day really opened eyes and gave hope to many as several people sought guidance and help in changing their lives. Thank you to Henry who without giving up, pushed for this event to happen for the people. And thank you to Res Recording Studios for hosting the event in their backyard. We appreciate everyone came out in support of Henry's vision of peace. You can find Bigg Slice at www.biggslice.com and an interview soon at www.myspace.com/thesogcrew.

Tre-C's overall stage performance set the atmosphere and brought an amazing end to the event and her final comment was "All glory to God". Tre-C, a woman with a heart after Christ, uses her music and talent to reach young girls and women encouraging them in Christ and to pursue after their dream in life.

Fundraiser for Missionaries To Amsterdam
In May 2007, Roy Palavicini and his family answered God's call to serve in Amsterdam, Netherlands, as missionaries. Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands, known for the arts, its liberal culture and legal prostitution it is a city in desperate need of Jesus. Pastor Roy and his family rejoice at what God has been doing through their ministry with YWAM: people are realizing their need for a Savior, their lives are being transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit and they are discovering their true identities as children and friends of God.
We at Transit MG want to be a bridge to people all over the world, we know that there are more missionaries like the Palavicini family who walk with people in the hard places.
They look to Jesus as the ultimate model of servanthood. Just as Jesus identifies with the poor, the broken and the forgotten, Pastor Roy and his family reach out to the least of all with love and compassion. They are "bridge builders," working closely with churches, community leaders and families in bringing real hope in places where there's little else to cling to. You can partner with us and this family of missionaries by supporting this even on Friday May 14th at 6:30 p.m. at Emmanuel Church in Lakewood. Let's UNITE to advance God's kingdom together!
