A call to action - within/without -- no person left behind; no person left out
Missions Update -- Upcoming Events:
1. Meet missionaries Sebastian and Kathleen Casas, church planters in Santa Marta and Ambalema, Colombia this Wednesday at our midweek supper and events. Sebastian and Kathleen have also served as translators for our work in Colombia.
2. Plan on an evening with Missy Christie of Conviventia on Wednesday evening April 14. Missy is President of Conviventia and a wonderful fount of knowledge and inspiration for ministry to and with disadvantaged peoples.
3. Please mark your calendar and save the date and time for our planned meeting with New Beginnings on Monday evening April 19 at their facility in Brenham. The purpose for this time is so that our members can become better acquainted with their programs and work. They have a 2-day training scheduled for April 22 and 23 for people willing to volunteer with them.
4. We will be forwarding appended information about a fundraiser for "Here I Am Orphan Ministry", located in Brenham but serving Texas and increasingly a greater part of the U.S. Karen Ginnard is serving as our liaison to this ministry. This ministry has impacted our local communities greatly over the past decade. You can find more information on their webpage at https://orphanministries.com/.
Please avail yourselves of the opportunity to become better acquainted with these ministries. Seek over the next few months to adopt at least one of these or the other local ministries we work with by supporting them not only with financial gifts but with your time and talents.
You will find that as you pour yourselves into these ministries in an effort to bless others, those blessings return to you multiplied.
