“THE LITTLE CHURCH THAT COULD” ….. AND DID !!!
Our people are AWSOME!!
As you might remember, this past Sunday Pastor Ryan and the Missions Committee asked for help to provide money for a Latino Pastor and his people to fund a shed for their tools and a tent for meetings and for selling the produce they are growing. A wonderful person has allowed this group to use some of their farmland to grow produce for healthy food for the group and the possibility to earn some money by selling their vegetables at the farm and the Farmers Markets.
When we counted the money at the end of our service, you had contributed about $900 to add to our previous amount of $1,220 which brought us very close to our goal of the full need of $2,500. And then, by Wednesday, with additional online contributions, we had reached $2,500!!! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH.
We will go out with them sometime this week to purchase the materials for the shed and order a tent. This will be such a wonderful gift for our Latino friends, because it will give them the possibility of working and getting something in return that they earned or made happen themselves.
I am also working on getting us a family again from the AIJN that we can help as a one-on-one type situation. This time it may be not babies but kids about 10-12 years old.
We are also planning to have some summer help for some of our families’ children who are left at home when parents are working. The plan is to pay for Annapolis City sponsored summer camp. Apparently it’s really inexpensive and is for the whole summer. We may need help with logistics on this program, but I think this will be a wonderful way to help! I also delivered some diapers and baby food from our church to Kelly who is collecting and dispensing them from her home. Thank you all so much for what you have been doing to help our friends.
Anyone interested to join us at AIJN ? Our next group meeting is Thursday, May 10th, at 6:30 to 8:00 pm at Calvary Methodist Church on 301 Rowe Blvd.
