Mission Trip, Resale Ministry and a Festival...God is using it ALL!

This month we are a little late in getting out the prayer update, but that is because we have had a lot going on and wanted to get some of it into this update and share our praises with all of you.  With a great trip to the Philippines, recognition in our community for the ministry of the resale shoppes and plans for our annual festival - we are seeing God move in amazing ways.  It is such an honor to partner with all of you in this ministry and we thank you for your prayers.

 

 






Connecting in the Philippines

Our four man Go Team recently returned from a great time of ministry with our partners at GROW International and Legacy Home in the Philippines.  Our good friend Mike Bucher (Executive Director of Grow) wrote us to say thanks and we thought it might encourage you as well...

I want to thank you for all that you guys did to make the short-term missions trip happen....this is deeply appreciated.  Despite having to let go of all the planning we did with only 48 hours to go before their arrival, none of this slipped by the Lord. :)  We ended up having a great trip!  On a personal note, I was really encouraged by the team and shared with them that I actually have been refreshed because of them and feel like my batteries have been recharged in a way.  Your partnership really means a lot to us and it's also great to have met these guys and to have built some new friendships!
 
Many thanks,
Mike 


Award in the Community 

Thanks to our great God, amazing volunteers, off the charts community support and enthusiatic shoppers we have seen Helping Hands Resale Shoppes flourish in three local communities. It was an honor to accept this award from the Chillicothe Chamber of Commerce on behalf of everyone who has made this ministry such a blessing! So far we have given out over $1.2 million to local and international charities since opening our doors in 2010! Looking forward to seeing
what the future holds!


Join Us For Unite Fest 2019!

As you can see we are gearing up for another amazing day of worship and fellowship for the Body of Christ in the Peoria area.  Last year we were blessed to be part of the team planning this summer festival in the heart of Peoria at Glen Oak Park and this year we are again part of the planning team.  There are lot's of opportunities to get involved as a sponsor, hosting an informational booth or volunteering to help on the day of the event.  Please pray for the Lord to provide all of the needed funds and friends to pull this off and that we will give the Lord all the glory.  Also, please let us know if you want to get involved in any way. 

See you on July 13th and please pray for great weather!

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
