Dear Prayer Warrior,
I recently heard of Pandemic Fatigue. We are tired of hearing about the virus, fretting about the health of our loved ones, waiting for a vaccine, planning for the new normal. Adding to our apprehension is the contentious election season that is upon us. Hopefully, the election will be over in a month. Some of our friends will be happy and some unhappy. All of us will be disappointed sometime in the future if we place too much hope in politicians, after all they are mere humans – just like us. We want to share the good news about Jesus, who will not fail us. He is our Creator, Sustainer and Redeemer. Thank you for partnering with us as we strive to share the love of Christ with those we have been called to serve.
The effects of the Covid pandemic are becoming more apparent as the months go by. Historically, the Appalachian region is among the first to feel the effects of an economic slowdown and among the last to enjoy a recovery. Adding to the affliction is the feeling of loneliness and isolation. The question of how we can share God’s love during these difficult times is answered by looking for ways to make a difference one opportunity at a time. The opportunities included helping an elderly lady without family that needed to move to a different residence. An opportunity did arise to join forces with another faith organization in distributing food boxes. This past month over 2,000 boxes of food were distributed in Jackson County. Our thrift stores are also providing a blessing to area residents.
Recently, we received a note stating that “we can never repay or thank you enough for your help to us”. That thanks goes to you through your partnership with us. Your prayer support is cherished. You are helping us to make a difference in our community.
Your Partner in Missions,
Jake Moss, Director of Development
