We are all feeling it. Everyone in one way or another has had their lives impacted by this pandemic. Missions and ministry are not exempt from these challenging times. Michelle and I are doing our best under the circumstances. We have been very busy reaching out and supporting our ministry partners in creative ways, in efforts to come alongside the amazing work they each do unto the Lord. Many of you have helped us in these efforts, and we thank each of you for that. We have an amazing group of people who have come alongside us in our ministry. We are so thankful for each and every one of you.
Because of you, we were able to bless Mountain Mission, Wears Valley Ranch, and Shiloh Children’s Home with an amazing Easter outreach. It proved to be very effective and timely due to each of them being on lockdown. We received great feedback from this.
Recently our ministry participated in the GivingTuesdayNow campaign. We were able to bless a local ministry with food to help in their community, as well as churches in Belize and Jamaica. One thing we love about serving with CSI Ministries is the commitment to get the resources directly to the need. 100% of the monies given for that campaign were dispersed to those in need.
Right before the shutdown happened in this country, we were able to complete our bunk bed build initiative down in the Appalachian area with the Freeda Harris Center. This effort will be a blessing for ministry for years to come.
