The Lord placed on our hearts a vision to build a warehouse of our own at our ministry headquarters in South Bend. This warehouse ensures that we are able to respond quickly and efficiently to people around the world during times of disaster and great need.
With many of you partnering with us, much progress has been made! We praise God and thank Him for you, for your heart of compassion and your generosity to His people. Because of your prayers and love gifts, the warehouse is now standing on our property.
However, the job is not yet finished!
God has put an urgency in our hearts to finish the warehouse immediately. We must have the capacity to safely store food and resources in order to quickly get help to those in need, both here in the United States, and abroad. We believe what the word tells us in Philippians 1:6, “Being confident of this very thing that He who began a good work in you will perform it.” We will complete this project! Will you join us?
The Christmas Season is fast approaching; this beautiful time of year when we celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ, the Father’s ultimate gift to humanity. A few months later we will celebrate Easter and the resurrection of our Lord. What a powerful reminder of God’s Sovereignty, as we humbly receive the gift of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, and marvel at His victory over death and darkness.
Will you partner with us from Christmas through Easter, December through March, to help the hungry and the hurting of our world? Our dream, our goal is to raise $200,000 by Easter 2016. The total cost of the warehouse was over half a million dollars. We praise God for all that He has done! (Psalm 126:3)
Please take a moment to hear this word from Pastor Stephen Sumrall:
Christ Chapel, our local congregation in South Bend, is rising to the challenge using innovative ideas to raise $40,000 between Christmas and Easter.
Will you join us? What creative God ideas do you have for the Kingdom? Please don’t think, “Well I’m just one person, what can I do?” We all can do something! Every one of us is an essential part of the body. We all have a significant role to play.
Thank you for your consideration in joining with us to reach thousands with the love of Jesus and the tangible lifesaving gift of food. Because of your generosity, thousands of fathers, mothers, and children will have hope for another tomorrow and the certainty of an eternity with Christ. Thank you and God bless you.
Your friend and brother,
P.S. For those giving 1,000 or more, a beautiful plaque will be hung in our warehouse office, displaying your name, or the name of your church. You may also give a memorial gift in loving memory of a beloved family member, to honor their memory with a remembrance that gives the gift of life.
