I want to thank everyone who has been praying for me during my time of healing from my heart surgery. I am getting stronger and feeling better every day. I have been back on track with a steady ministry schedule, ministering weekly at the Elkhart County Jail and twice a month at the Elkhart Juvenile Detention Center. So, Praise God! It’s good to get back into the swing of things. Thanks again for your prayers
As we get closer to Christmas we are starting to plan our Christmas Outreaches. I love the Christmas season, the time we celebrate the birth of Jesus, and this is one of my favorite times to reach out and minister to folk.
Westville Christmas Outreach:
Saturday December 3rd. I will be teaming up with a group of ministers for a full day event as we reach out to the inmates of Westville Correctional Facility. This is the prison’s annual Cookie Outreach, where many Churches and ministries flood the Westville Facility with hundreds and thousands of cookies- all for the inmates. Besides the cookies, we will be ministering in song, testifying, preaching, offering prayer and sharing the Gospel.
This year will be our eleventh year reaching out to the needy during the Christmas season. On December 12th and 13th we will be blessing twenty needy families in Elkhart. Most will be single moms with kids that live in government assisted housing with very limited incomes. We will be delivering these boxes right into their home which provides a great opportunity for us to share the Gospel one on one, pray and minister with these families.
By the way, we want to thank the Catholic Charity, Knights of Columbus, as they are the ones giving us these forty food boxes (each family will get two boxes) these Christmas Boxes will be loaded with an estimated $85.00 worth of food. They will include a 5lb ham, noodles, canned vegetables, fruit, soup, potatoes, bread, peanut butter, cereal, soup etc. We will be adding to these food boxes as we will bless all the children and teenagers with a Christmas gift. Plus, every box will have a Bible and Gospel tracts in them. Our goal is to share the love of Christ and pray with every family member.
Then on December 20th we will be ministering at Elkhart Juvenile Detention Facility. This will be our third year having a special Christmas service reaching out to the incarcerated youth. We plan on ministering to the students with special music, preaching, teaching and prayer. We will kick it all off with a special meal as we will provide pizza for every student and they will receive a Bible and a devotional as a Christmas present.
Mardi Gras Street Evangelism Mission Trip:
I am very excited about this upcoming event in February of 2017 I will be heading to New Orleans, La with a team of local evangelists to join hundreds of street ministers from around the nation as we conduct a week of street ministry/evangelism during Mardi Gras. We will be leaving Feb 22nd and returning Feb 28th.
