Dear Mission Friends,
Thanks to you,
hundreds of men, women, boys, and girls were able to enjoy the warmth of a new
blanket, this past winter. They also
received a coat, shoes, socks, gloves and hats to help keep them warm when
outside in the cold. They were so
grateful and appreciated the kindness shown to them during the harsh winter
they endure on a yearly basics.
Over four hundred
seventy five children grades K4 thru grades 12, received backpacks full of much
needed school supplies. The children
were all smiles to receive the gift of supplies to help them in the classroom
during the school year. The children
also received a small gift and goodie bags, as these are items they rarely get
Your gifts have
allowed us to minister and share the love of Jesus with local homeless
individuals. Where our group, along with
other ministries have provided food, clothes, and items of warmth, tarps, and
tents to the people left to survive in harsh conditions.
We continue to
support several local food ministries and The Appalachian Mountain Region food
ministries with monetary donations on a monthly basics. During the food distributions along with other
outreach ministry over two hundred people have come to know Jesus and
experience His love and grace.
We are preparing
for this year mission trips, one is to be held September 11 & 12, 2015. We are going to The Church of God in St.
Charles, VA and surrounding communities.
During this trip we will give free of charge items of warmth, clothes,
food, shoes, socks, back packs (full of school supplies), toys, diapers, and
baby items. Several years ago this was
a thriving coal mining town where people worked hard to support their
families. Now the jobs are gone, the
stores are closed and the people thru no fault of their own are in need of
assistance for basic daily needs.
The other mission trip is to Crossroads
Baptist Church in Brevard, NC. Where we
will have a “Back to School” family fun day.
This day of fun consist of bounce house, games, snack bags, clothes,
shoes and back packs full of much needed school supplies. In this area there are a lot of families living
at or below the poverty level. The
church has a food ministry and helps local people with their food needs on a
all of the outreach mission trips, our guest enjoy music, singing, puppets for
the children, and sharing of God’s word.
Every person attending is given a
Bible of their own. There is a Gideon, a
Pastor, Elder, or Deacon at this table to pray upon request for all our guest
attending. They also can place a prayer
request in the prayer box.
Several of our
team members are involved locally in their home churches with food ministries,
children ministry and homeless ministry, among other type ministries. Appalachian Ministries of The Carolinas helps
support some of these local outreach events.
We are excited to join with a ministry in Greenville, SC help provide
food for the homeless and sharing the love of Christ.
