There are many people with many needs. Some needs are as small as needing a new pair of shoes. But more than anything else, people need food and clothing. Please join us in reaching out to those in need.
The list of people asking for help grows larger every day. We needed a building to work from to make it easier to help the communities around us and to grow our ability to help in other areas of ministry.
We would appreciate any type of vehicle that works. Our biggest needs for transportation are as follows.
- box van
- moving truck pick up truck (but we also will take any vehicle that is in good running condition)
FOR THE CHILDREN…
There are so many children who would like to have toys but their parents cannot afford to buy them any. To us it seems so small and not even a necessity. But to a child it can be a dream. That in itself is important. Children need to know that “money” doesn’t make dreams come true, it is love. We would like to make it a goal that with every family we help, each child is able to have at least one toy (in good condition) to play with.
We would also like to give these children books to read at home on a rainy day. They also need school supplies. Any writing books, paper, pencils, pens that you can offer will give these families the opportunity to buy food instead.
It may appear strange to you that we are asking this. But we are making a call to doctors, dentists, optometrists and healthcare professionals in the area to donate their time to some of these families. There are medical needs that people are unable to get treatment for because they lack the finances to pay for their consultations and prescriptions. Your time would be a huge blessing for some of these people and could possibly change their lives forever.
Of all things we are asking everyone and anyone to care through…
