BOMBS – Breakthrough of Ministry Beauty School NEWS

full newsletter can be read here SOE IS DROPPING GOOD BOMBS

It’s hard to believe how fast the year has gone by.  It reminds us of how important it is to make every day count and to stay encouraged!  We are thankful for all the encouragement and support we receive from those near and far!  We love being in the new location here connected to The Water’s Edge and we pray for great blessings upon our landlord – he and his family have been excellent to us.  We are so thankful for everyone who has been a part of the first year here!!

We would like to share some of the recent highlights of the last little while which are adding some fresh coals to the fire of what SOE, QUEST and Worship Arts Institute are all about!!

  • Spirit of Excellence has been Raising Up Young Leaders since 2003 officially, formed as a Registered Charity, and we began nearly 4 decades now!
  • We’ve trained thousands of women and young people How to Discover their Potential and ministered to many women who were involved and caught up in the sex trade industries!
  • NOW we are focusing and dropping this new  “BOMBS” to positively impact more women and create an empowered, positive future for their families!  SOE’s ‘BOMBS’  expansion will raise up and train rescued women from the Sex Trafficking Industry through beauty career training, spiritual healing, discipleship, releasing their creativity and provide mentorship support! 
  • Co-Founder and Director Colleen Kosti – is Award Winning Nail and Makeup Expert – already trained thousands of women as Beauty Professionals, since starting her journey teaching at St. Clair College in 1979!
  • NOW it is time to drop the BOMBS (Breakthrough of Ministry Beauty School) –  expand and rescue vulnerable women through training them in Beauty, Ministry and BREAKING THEM INTO THEIR NEW LIFE, NEW CAREERS AND NEW FOUND BEAUTY!
  • Your partnership with supporting this ‘BOMBS’ expansion will help hundreds of thousands of vulnerable women become strong, gain Godly wisdom and fulfill God’s will for their livesl!!
  • Let’s join forces together to drop BOMBS (or actually throw some positive Ministry empowered BOMBS – and make a dent in the exploitation of vulnerable young women who may often end up involved and sex trafficked and rescue these women to provide them a future!
  • Together we can reach hundreds of thousands more women and give them a hand to break into their destiny!

John Kosti Blog – Vignettes from JK

Glad you are listening to one of my “JK Vignettes”……I’m an Urban Missionary, versatile drummer, humorous communicator, minister, loving husband and grand-father of 5…
I started drumming at 18 and my passion is to see young people, musicians and creative artists encouraged and developed in their talents and to provide for them the opportunities to create original music, places to activate and grow their strengths and have a means of inspiration from other experienced legends and experts. My wife Colleen has a gift of meeting people from all around the world, and many like-minded creative artists, famous recording artists have come to visit us at SOE our training centre and do creative projects together! We are thankful for this favour and desire to inspire other creatives to dream big and never give up! With God all things are possible – and with a lot of work and faith – you will find your purpose, and the mission for your life!
You are invited to come visit Colleen and I, and the SOE family at our Ministry of Role Modeling the Spirit of Excellence located in Windsor, Ontario Canada – or join us online for our regular ONLINE WORKSHOPS or Web Streaming.
