A little boost

North Marion Fellowship took this Sunday as an opportunity to “be the church” and serve instead of gathering together for the regular meeting. I love this idea and give them props for stepping out and doing things a little different.

We were blessed to be a part of the service project!  They did a food drive for us and collected bags and bags of non-perishables from homes all over Hubbard and Aurora.  Andy and I were so encouraged by the response from our neighbors and community members.

It was great to receive a little boost for the pantry.  God has provided enough through the Body of Christ each week but every Tuesday leaves our shelves pretty bare.  We are thankful to all of our covenant congregations for their continued support in prayer, encouragement and regular food giving.  We cannot do this on our own!

Prayers and praises…

  • This Tuesday at 7:00pm, Andy will go to the city council meeting again.  Our community garden vision is first on the agenda!  Please pray for more favor from council members and God’s love to pour over Andy as he presents/answers questions again.
  • Relationships continue to be made and strengthened!  It makes me smile to drive around our town and wave to people we know and are learning to love.  And our picture collage has started to take a beautiful shape on our food pantry wall.  I love it!
  • Keep praying for our Spanish abilities.  In a strange way, our inability is a benefit to those who come to receive food because they get to give us something, by helping us speak their language- it seems to equal things out a bit.  But at the same time, we crave the ability to fluently speak and have deeper conversations.

Thank you again, North Marion Fellowship, for the food drive!  And, thank you all for your continued support, whether it is seen or unseen.  God is good and we continue to see the Kingdom growing, hearts changing, and eyes opening.
