Greetings Dear Friends…from The HOPE.
It’s hard to comprehend what 4 Mission of Hope truckloads of God’s harvest looks like and perhaps this picture helps.
We put up over 100 tables and we still can’t unpack every item we bring: food, hygiene, clothing, household items, small appliances, blankets/bedding, Bibles & tracts, and various other items. It’s the wonderful donations that we get here at The HOPE and then in turn give to the Mountain Ministry Centers we partner with; for them to get where most needed. We served a little over 800 people representing many, many families who are truly struggling and desperately need some assistance and a hand up. And we also prayed for many who came up to our MOH volunteers and requested it. We gave out hundreds of Bibles and tracts, and tried to be a breath of fresh air for all those present. All were extremely patient, and we heard the words “thank you” from many who were grateful for our efforts.
A very special thank you to all of our Mission of Hope volunteers who helped make this Outreach & Distribution Event possible: the MOH truck loading team & driving team, the set up & event distribution team, and our host’s Rev. Keith & Joyce Decker and the Cedar Ridge Ministry Staff Team.
We are humbly grateful to serve the rural Appalachian communities we go to and we count it a privilege to do just that. Thank you for all you do to deem us worthy of your participation and support and for helping us extend true and genuine HOPE in a variety of ways.
