Praises and Planning!

One of the best things about starting a new year in ministry is not only celebrating what the Lord has done, but looking forward to what He is bringing our way.  We have a few awesome praises to share that give us a jump start in 2019 and we want to ask for prayer for a few specific trips and plans we have for the year to come. We would also like to encourage all of you who pray for us on a regular basis to visit our website and see even more of what the Lord is doing as we Connect a Timothy Culture in the Church!
Canton Building Update

One of our big goals is to be able to purchase the front half of the building that we use for our Helping Hands Resale Shoppe in Canton Illinois.  This required a lot of prayer and generous donations to make it a reality as we sought to raise $26,000 for the down payment that would allow us to own our space for the shop and give even more to local and international charities.  Well the Lord answered prayer and we plan to close on the building February 1st! As  you can see from the picture above it is a great space, but does need some exterior work that we will now be able to do as owners of the building.  Thanks for praying and for the generous donations to make this a reality.

 


Great Year for Resale!!!

$234,787


With our first full year of having three Helping Hands Resale Shoppes in three very different communities, we are excited to announce that we were able to share a total of $234,787 with over 120 local and international charities and community organizations!  It is amazing to see what the Lord does when His people come together and serve in their communities.  This is a great picture of what we call a Timothy Culture in the Church!

Your prayer and support allows us to connect a Timothy Culture in the Church by:

  • Planning and facilitating experiences that help missionaries and expose people to their work
  • Encouraging and equipping leaders so that they can follow through on God's prompting to serve a specific ministry
  • Helping leaders recruit and train a team of people as needed to fulfill their vision for serving
  • Breaking down barriers that might keep people from following through on God's call to serve missions
