FUNDRAISING... Earlier this year we launched an adoption ministry with the purpose to help families in the adoption process raise the funds needed to pay for their adoption. In the month of March we worked with two families the Weddles and the Garbers. Through this process we learned how stressful adoption is and how messed up our legal system is. But on a positive side we got to work with two amazing Christian couples and see their friends and families step up in support of their passion to adopt a child. In all we raised nearly $12,000 towards these two adoptions in the month of March. We still have a busy spring ahead of us. So, join us in prayer or let us know if you want to volunteer for any of the events listed below.
THE LISTEN PROJECT... In an effort to be more involved in the community directly around us we will be helping Mike, a disabled veteran who lives a few blocks from our office, here in Belton, Mo. Mike lived in a storage unit for the past six months, in order to save up enough money to purchase a home from an old army buddy. The house he moved into on April 1 was abandoned for two years and needs work. It has no electricity, needs a new front porch, fridge and stove/oven. Also, Mike is in need of tools and food. We will have a big workday on Saturday, April 21 to help Mike make this house his home. You can let us know if you want to attend or if you have items to donate by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will meet at 500 C Street Belton, MO 64012 at 9 am.
