Through blessings from above and the efforts of about a dozen of us, we were able to touch the lives of thousands of folks in their very hour of dire need. We look back in thanks and found memories of those we have met thus far, and pray that our efforts to get cleaning supplies and school supplies down to Marathon Fl (keys) to those in need there. When many work together great things can be accomplished!  Shalom!

Amazing amount of direct food aid headed for Florida, help us get it there!

We have a business donating an full load of food aid to folks still suffering from storm related problems. We are looking to get the fuel together to get the trip down to the local organization that is serving daily prepared meals to the public impacted by the storm, and giving out food boxes several times a week. We will be taking the big boy truck and a trailer. We expect to have a full load of things to help these folks keep on feeding those impacted. A lot of these folks are just getting power back, and lost so much. It is our pleasure to help meet these most basic of needs during their time of troubles. We encourage everyone to help as they can, what ever way they can! All donations will be used to cover the direct travel/fuel cost for the trip. We will be heading out Monday morning after getting loaded up. Thanks in advance for your prayers and support!

Lift those incarcerated in prayer for safety and mercy

Keep those locked up in prison in your prayers, Just visited brethren in Oklahoma’s “care”, and it is very unsafe right now with gang and drug problems…unsafe for those who are locked up, and those who work there. Keep them lifted!
A lot of people have preconception about people locked up…some are rotten scoundrels, some are exactly what many “label” them all…but by and large they are normal people who ran amuck in choices at some point, or got trapped in system that turns citizens into inmates for unjust reasons…regardless of they why, they are still people…and given a chance many can become the best neighbor, friend, etc you could ever want. Just like a badge doesn’t mean a “good” or “bad” cop/CO…being locked up doesn’t automatically tell about a man’s character. The disciples were locked up, many great men in history were locked up.

Abilities and Disabilities come in many forms…be aware of Spiritual “disabilities”

Most of us are aware that we all have areas which we are gifted and some areas which we are “not inclined”.  What we don’t always consider is just like there can be physical disability that impair someone being able to met an expectation, there can be other factors “harder” for us to see that can impact us or others. The four areas we should work to mindful of are, Physical, Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual Abilities. We wouldn’t expect a person who their eyesight due to an injury to read to us. Some people have had emotional trauma which has changed their ability to interact in the same sort of way. If they gave been betrayed or mistreated and that “injury” didn’t heal then they won’t be able to trust/love like someone who hasn’t had that trauma. Spiritually there are disabilities as well, and these can be had by any group, any faith, any professed belief system, or those with none at all. The ability to show “love” and “decency” quick mile post to a persons “Spiritual” health.  Spiritual “health” is visible in these elements: love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23).
