We have been very active since December, We attended a wedding were Don and I were asked to stand as Mother and Father of the Bride which was a privilege.
Mission of Love was held Christmas Day at New City Church. There were 30-40 in attendance and we had a wonderful Christmas dinner thanks to the cooks and all the volunteers. Those who attended were from the church and the community. To God be the Glory.
Don and I started up the Overcomers at the Salvation Army again on January 8, 2019, I was filling in until Robert got better. By the grace of God and the assistance of others we moved Robert to a new place. He went back with Don to the Salvation Army Tuesday Feb. 26.
We have been about our Fathers work as it is written Mat 25:35,36-‘for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;
25:36 ‘I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’
Don and I have continued go to the prisons every other week and we had two more grads in February and will have four more this week. Praise the Lord.
Don and I have been busy with hospital visitation for the last three months. Don for a while almost daily.
The Thursday night men’s Overcomes group is going well, they have some dedicated men going through the program.
A new women’s group should start sometime this month.
Movie night continues every other Friday night in the community room at the building we live at.
John is recovering from his shoulder surgery and will be coming into the prison this Monday. He has been missed by the guys. We now have 40 men between the two prisons taking the Overcomers.
The Lord has laid it strong on my heart to have a local residential home for women but that would have to be the Lord’s doing. We would need a place, the funds and the volunteers and all the furnishings.
Please pray into this with me. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt if it is the Lord it will come into being because it is written Luke 1:37 “For with God nothing will be impossible.”
That is it for now, we continue to pray for you all.
Thank you for your prayers and if you have any ideas or support in any area please let us know.
God bless you all.
See you here, there or in the air.
