Ministry Update 12-19-17 by Travis Sharpe

Here’s a look at what’s going on right now at Unsheltered International.

 We were blessed to be with Unity Baptist Church in Ripley, MS this past Sunday for their Christmas program and with Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church the Sunday before. As always, we appreciate the invitations we get to share with our partner churches. I’m especially thankful for my family who travels with me and makes it so much fun!

Philippines

In the Philippines ministry, our team had to delay their Christmas program for the children because of a typhoon that came through and caused massive rainfall and some flooding. They have re-schedueled the festivities for December 23rd. That’s good because it gives us a little more time to bring in the needed funds. So, if you would still like to donate toward the children’s Christmas, you can do that here.

Also in the Philippines, God has REALLY been blessing our meal center ministry with new sponsors. We currently have sixteen meal centers and out of those, ten of them are fully sponsored. Another four of the centers are partially sponsored and only two of them have yet to receive sponsors. I am truly grateful for the families and churches who have committed to providing for these children through our sponsorship program.

New Orleans mission trip

Our trip to New Orleans is right around the corner and everyone is getting really excited. We have over ten people who have paid their deposit and we have about ten more who have said they are going to be doing so real soon. If you are interested in joining us, you might want to go ahead and jump on board while there is still room.

 I’m expecting several people to sign up after Christmas but we only have hotel rooms for 30 people so I hope we won’t have to turn anyone away. We are doing something new this time by having a morning revival for three days in a row. Prayerfully, it will be a great week of ministering to people who are so often forgotten about by most of society.

I’m excited and ready for January 27th to get here! That’s our arrival date. The trip goes from Saturday the 27th- Thursday, February 1st.

The Christmas catalog

People have been giving as a result of our gift catalog that highlights many of our ministries and unique ways to give to them. If you haven’t seen the catalog yet, you can view it on our website by clicking here. Thanks so much to everyone who has already given!

Thank you!

That’s about it for now. Thank you for following our ministry and for your prayers and support. There’s just no way we could continue without YOU.
