What a start to the new year! We have seen God moving in so many ways here in the West Virginia mountains!
The Christmas service stirred many hearts. One woman asked to become a volunteer because she felt so much peace here in the Community Center. Turns out, she had started attending the church we attend the week before. I’m telling you, God is always setting situations up for His good. Well, the next Sunday she was at church and gave her life to Christ. Praise God!!! How awesome is that!!!!
In January, we were able to get away for a few days and go to our sending church, Tomoka Christian Church, in Florida. This church has been a big part of our life and it was great to touch base with many people while we were there. Not only was it a great time of refreshment, but God had a few appointments set up for us as well!
This month, we continued distributing new beds to kids here in WV. These new kid’s beds were made possible through our partnership with ‘Hope To Dream’, a part of Ashley Furniture. Several of the children had no beds at all and were so excited to receive a full bed set, right down to new sheets and a comforter! God is so good and we see him working in the lives of these families.
January 26th was the first Praise and Worship service here at the WV Community Center. Josh, Andrew, Donna and Cliff led us in a powerful time of worship and Josh preached. There were healings of both body and spirit. We can’t wait to see what God has in store with these monthly services. They will be the last Thursday of each month. Come join us!
We were able to host people a few times this month at the Community Center. We are honing our cooking skills for the mission teams starting in March, and we’ve been working on our hiking trails too! We have several teams already scheduled for 2023. Whether one person or several, we would love for you to come join us in showing the love of Jesus!
