Ministry Update 5-23-17

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing great today. God has been blessing and I have a lot of great activities to share with you in this weeks ministry update. First, I have to say Happy Anniversary to my precious wife April. Today marks 19 years for us and it is all by God’s grace.

  • In addition to all this, Exit 0 provided:
  • 9 tents

  • 50 snack bags
  • 50 hygiene bags
  • 25 bug spray
  • 6 mats
  • 10 flashlights

Wow, that’s a lot of stuff huh? We are giving God thanks for everyone who worked to make it all happen. Our friend Paul Stensrud from Exit 0 Homeless Outreach in Jeffersonville, IN came and helped tremendously. He did camp outreach the day before and outfitted many people with needed supplies on the day of the event.
