Breakthrough Club is a social and vocational program for persons with a mental illness. WithEpiscopal Social Services (ESS), together, both entities are available to serve those who are poor and/or disabled by symptoms of mental illness.

Breakthrough Club continues to grow and remains a valuable resource for those living with mental illness in the Wichita community. Breakthrough Club developed out of the need to help persons who have mental illnesses improve the quality of their lives. Early leaders of the Breakthrough Club program decided to implement a clubhouse model program in Wichita, KS. The "clubhouse" model, started by Fountain House in New York City, caught their attention. The concept behind the clubhouse is that the staff and members are equal, sharing equal responsibility for the day to day functioning of the clubhouse. This is different than most rehabilitation programs because the clients are working through their mental illness with the support of staff and others who are experiencing the same difficulties.

Fountain House defines a clubhouse this way: "A clubhouse is committed to helping people with mental illness stay out of hospitals while achieving educational, financial and vocational goals. Responsibility for operation of the Clubhouse lies with the members and staff, who are engaged in all aspects of Clubhouse operation." It's our hope that when our members come on a daily, weekly or monthly basis that they feel personally invested in their recovery and in helping others recover. Breakthrough Club is the only accredited clubhouse in the State of Kansas.

The clubhouse model affirms the value of members and their ability to be part of a meaningful community regardless of mental illness.

The Four Guaranteed Rights of Membership are: • A right to a place to come • A right to meaningful relationships • A right to meaningful work • A right to a place to return

The club was originally part of Episcopal Social Services. In 1992 it became a freestanding non-profit organization modeled on the Fountain House "clubhouse model" concept in New York City. Breakthrough Club is fully accredited by the International Center on Clubhouse Development. In 2008, mental health funding was drastically cut in the state of Kansas and by local government agencies. Breakthrough Club lost 75% of its funding and had to drastically cut services. Today, after years of advocacy on the part of staff and members,Breakthrough Club enjoys the support of the State of Kansas through discretionary funding.

is relatively different to the other places in Vietnam. The weather in Mui Ne is dry all year since Binh Thuan province – where Mui Ne resides – is the driest region in South East Asia ; and even in the rainy season, there seems to be very little rain in comparison to nearby places, like Nha Trang, Hoi An.

Mui Ne

It will be an omission if we don’t consider Mui Ne as one of the most stunning beaches in Viet Nam. Mui Ne is located in Phan Thiet – the capital of Binh Thuan Province. It is a beautiful beach with many high-ranked coastal resorts, which can easily satisfy any traveler. Mui Ne attracts not only international but also domestic traveler with its gorgeous beach and many interesting activities. Besides that, Mui Ne is also famous for kite and wind surfing.

If you want to enjoy the most beautiful beaches in Vietnam, you should visit Mui Ne from December to April. In these months, the beach of Mui Ne is just amazing with yellow sand, blue water and clear sky. Tourists will have a great time lying on the beach under the palm trees; that will definitely be a memorable experience.

Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is the busiest city in the South of Vietnam. Saigon – Ho Chi Minh City is also a major tourist center, with many historical sites, beautiful spots and museums. This area is also marked the war against the French and Americans in 19th century in Vietnam. There are 11 must-visit museums in this area, including War Remnants Museum – the most famous war exhibition in Vietnam.

Along with that, you should not miss many attractive sites in the 1st crowded people of Vietnam: City Hall of Ho Chi Minh People’s Committee, Opera House, Central Post Office, Nha Rong Port, Ben Thanh Market and the Independence Palace. Recently, new projects such as Diamond Plaza, Bitexco Financial Tower, Saigon Trade Center are changing the trend as well as modern lifestyle of Saigon-Ho Chi Minh city. On the city outskirts, there are also prominent attractive sites with the famous destination is the Cu Chi Tunnels.

Why Did Jesus Tell His Disciples to Be Silent about His Identity?

One of the questions that has often perplexed me is why Jesus told his disciples not to reveal his identity. If he was truly the Messiah, and had come to save the people, why not shout it from the rooftops? Why be so seemingly secretive?

In Mark 8:27, Jesus famously asks his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” Some of the apostles said John the Baptist, others said Elijah, and still others said he was a prophet. But Peter answers, “You are the Christ.” And according to Mark, Jesus “strictly charged them to tell no one about him” (v. 30).

Reason #1: Waiting for theRight Understanding

Recently I was reading Who Is Jesus ? (Darrell Bock), which is an excellent resource on contemporary studies of the historical Jesus. He offers two points to help explain Jesus’ call to silence.

First, the disciples do not yet understand the identity of Jesus. They still have quite a bit to learn. Mark frequently shows the apostles (and the crowds) as confused and dumbstruck at the claims and actions of Jesus (e.g., Mark 1:27; 4:10-20, 41; 6:52).

The apostles were especially confused about his need to suffer, which is made clear in the ensuing passage. Jesus tells his apostles that he must suffer and die and then rise again after the third day. Peter immediately takes Jesus aside to rebuke him, but Jesus responds, “Get behind me Satan! For you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man” (Mark 8:33).

Like the rest of the apostles, Peter failed to understand how the fate of Jesus related to his identity.What does this mean for the silence of the apostles? Bockexplains: “So the disciples are to wait on making this proclamation until they understand all that it truly means” (p. 102).

Reason #2: Avoiding a Roman Response

Second, if Jesus publicly proclaimed his Messiahship, he would have put himself at immediate risk before Rome. The Roman authorities decided who was king, and so the claim that Jesus was Messiah (or king)would have been a direct affront to their power. Jesus knew his primary mission was not to topple the physical kingdom of Rome, but to bring spiritual salvation.

Darrell Bock explains why a public proclamation that Jesus was the Messiah might have incited a Roman response:

The messianic expectation at Qumran was of two messianic figures, a political deliverer and a priestly Messiah, with the priestly figure having the prominent role. So to utter Messiah to a Jewish public in the first century would generate one of these powerful images and potentially incite a Roman response. Given the variety of messianic conceptions, the exclusive emphasis on power, and the height of political expectation coming with the title Messiah, Jesus preferred to speak of the Son of Man and teach his disciples about the prospect of suffering, which they had not anticipated ” (102-103).

As students reach adolescence, they are met with more rigorous intellectual content, a growing understanding and respect for the world around them, and a spirit of exploration.

As students reach adolescence, they are met with more rigorous intellectual content, a growing understanding and respect for the world around them, and a spirit of exploration. This adventuresome spirit is met by a full 7th grade curriculum. In history studies the students delve into the Renaissance, investigating this time period through biographies of the great – and sometimes not so great – men and women. The students grow in an understanding the age of exploration through the biographies of Christopher Columbus, Vasco da Gama, Zheng He, Henry the Navigator, and others, whose stories lead the students to see how complex our pasts are and how good men can do bad and bad men can do good. Looking into scientific growth and inventions of the Renaissance the students learn of Galileo, Kepler, Copernicus, Brahe, Gutenberg, and others who helped modern science take hold of minds and hearts. Finally, understanding the great thinkers and artists of this time gives the stories of da Vinci, Erasmus, Machiavelli, Michaelagelo, Durer, and others whose work we still admire and emulate today.

The seventh grader is a student of great extremes. Sometimes fiery, sometime icy, the science curriculum reflects this inner experience of the student. Chemistry studies circulate around acids, bases and salts, as well as combustion. Physics focus on optics, mechanics and electromagnetism. Life sciences gives the students a firm understanding of their bodies as we turn our eyes inward to Human Physiology. In all of these lesson there are elements that speak to the core of the student, be it the crystallizing of salt, reflected in the pure thinking of the student, the combustion of gases, reflected in the occasional “flare ups” of a 7th grader’s social life, or the intense and then neutralizing effect acids and bases have on each other.

Math lessons give the students pre-algebra including studies of the metric system, ratios, exponents and square roots, and continued work with decimals, percentages and fractions. The students have a main lesson block in Algebra where graphing, solving for the unknown, positive and negative numbers, and word problems are introduced. In addition to this the students study geometry. In 6th Grade geometry focused on artistic forms and using tools to create images, while in 7th grade we get down to the barebones of geometry and focus on the mathematical aspect of this discipline.

Language arts in 7th Grade focuses on complex grammar and growing vocabulary. Students no longer write book reports – now they turn in well thought through essays focused on an aspect of a book read in class. Books read in 7th Grade include: The Outsiders by SE Hinton, I, Juan de Pareja, The Giver by Lois Lowry, Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry, and short stories. The students also have a main lesson block focused on poetry entitled Wish, Wonder and Surprise wherein the class gains understanding and appreciation for poetry’s place in human history, meter, rhythm, and how to write poems.

All of these lessons are supplemented with weekly classes in Spanish, Russian, Handwork, Woodwork, Orchestra, Instruments (woodwinds or stringed), PE, Latin and Study Hall.
