Greetings, Dear Mission Of Hope Friends;
We have been blessed with an AWESOME Volunteer sign up response for our Bell County, KY Repair Fair which is tomorrow, Saturday, April 28th. And we even have a MOH Team from NorthEast Christian Church in Lexington, KY meeting us there as well. Our Knoxville MOH Team will be leaving the Mission of Hope office at 6 AM. Everyone who has signed up has been contacted and knows the details for the day. A special and hearty THANK YOU, to our MOH Friend Cliff Overby for leading this wonderful event this year. We have been assigned a very good project task and the family we are assisting is grateful for us coming to help them. Please remember and uplift in prayer, all of our Mission of Hope Volunteers and the many other Volunteer Teams that will take part in this very special outreach ministry effort.
Also, I regret to inform you that I just learned from our dear friend, Bother Sheldon Livesay, that Brother Ike Gibson, who help start and lead Of One Accord Ministries in Rogersville, TN and The Shepherd’s Corner Ministry in Sneedville, TN has passed away after a brave battle with cancer and pneumonia. As such, the Family and the Ministry Centers have decided to cancel the Spring Fest Event which we were going to this weekend in Sneedville, TN, as they honor their loved one this weekend with his funeral. I responded to Brother Sheldon already that we certainly understand and will keep them uplifted in our prayers. May I humbly appeal for you to do the same? I will contact each of those who had previously signed up to go either tonight or tomorrow morning by phone just to make sure everyone that was going is aware of this news.
Thanks for your friendship and support and for all you do to help us extend The Hope.
Emmette Thompson, Executive Director – Mission Of Hope
