Love Story: Medical Ministry Meeting Real Needs

I was speaking with our Medical Ministry Coordinator today asking him what Love INC encounter had touched his heart lately and here is what he told me:

A woman requesting medical equipment met him at our medical storage facility and in the course of picking out the things she needed, Ron asked if she could use a lift chair? She said she had just ordered one that day but could easily cancel it and take ours! She and her husband then gave us a recliner and a couch which went out to a family in need that very week.

God is good and gracious in letting us participate with Him in providing for His children.

Love Story: Medical Goods

Our second GAP ministry was durable medical goods- stored in the loft at Lebanon Mennonite Church. The coordinator at the time, Sterling Burkey and his trainee, Ron, would stop at thrift stores and garage sales handing out a Love INC card and gathering more and more medical equipment. The more people we served in this ministry the more medical goods would come in until we outgrew the loft. We now are housed in a larger building owned by Mennonite Village.

Sometimes Sterling or Ron would tell me we were getting too many or not enough of a certain item and within a week requests and donations would rectify the situation. Very often within days of someone requesting something we didn’t have it would be donated!

Today I just heard a new story- a Doctor at the hospital called as they had someone that wanted to be water baptized…did we have a Hoyer lift they could borrow?…..VERY COOL!.

Thank you for being a part of making this possible.

Love Story: School Supplies

Our school supply giveaway this year helped 200 children get ready for school! Each backpack contained a Gideon’s bible, a packet from CEF as well as school supplies. The students were also given opportunity to look through our new clothing and shoes.

The firewood ministry will have 100 plus cord of wood to giveaway this year. A HUGE thank you to Mennonite Village for the donated space, David Gray the ministry coordinator, wood donors, and the volunteers who have contributed hundreds of man hours to make this blessing possible.

Thank you for your continued support through your prayers, time and finances to make this all possible.
