Our 2018 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service
Wow, what a glorious day! The Lord went before us and prepared the way, from the ideas for the project, to the blessing of the award of $5000.00 to do the project and all the steps in between. The Lord was with us and on that day we were his hands and feet. Over 200 backpacks filled with blessing bags were personally handed out. Thank you to Warren Jorena, Ralph Wile, and Gene Hany for ministering to the men at Harvest House (formerly Russo’s Prison Ministry). Thank you to Carol Hany and Barb Jahnke for ministering to the ladies at the “Learn to Fish” Recovery Center for Women. Thank you to Pastor Gene, John Bradbury, Sharon Stewart, Lisa Willis, Don and Diane Bensen, Stan and Dena Wish, Frank Saver and County Commissioner-Betsy Benac for your work at the Salvation Army. Thank you, each and every one of you in the congregation for your prayers and your words of encouragement. Thank you also for all the socks. The socks were a big hit! We were truly the body of Christ, the church united. I wish I had the words to express how hearts, both the givers and those who received, were touched by Jesus that day. “Jesus said ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’ ” Matthew 25: 40 We give God the Glory and Praise His Name; Name above all Names!
Once again I thank each and every one of you for, as the song says, Loving God and Loving each other.

In His Love,
Janet Saver, Missions
