Mosaic Weekly Update
Over the last weeks things have been a little hectic at Mosaic due to a number of events. I guess the hectic nature comes with the ministry we often do, just this afternoon I heard of one of the ladies we serve who just lost her baby which died this morning. She didn’t have custody of the baby but this doesn’t negate the hurt. We also have one of our volunteers whom I have had the honor of mentoring that lost his mother last weekend. Unfortunately he had been saving to buy him a truck as he has been working, but he had to use $2,200 of his earnings to pay for his mother’s funeral. There have been other things happening, but the ministry God has called us to isn’t just a call, it is a commitment.
This weekend on Saturday we are planning on feeding as we have the Wichita Police Department come to our facility to discuss and present the new planning and efforts that are being proposed regarding policies and treatment of Wichita’s homeless. It is an honor to host this meeting and everyone is invited. The meeting starts at noon, we will open the doors at 11:30, serve food shortly after the presentation starting at approximately 12:45. Eastside Church of God is coming to help serve and prepare the food so we expect to have a full house.
This Sunday we continue the series on the Gospel of Luke. This week we look at the call of Jesus on our lives. This is a concept many don’t think about as much, but as we look at the message this weekend, we will certainly see the importance of all of us considering the call of God on our lives.
As usual the bulletin for the week is attached. There are a lot of things happening in the next month as we wind down the service of the evening shelter program. Pray for the ladies who will have no place to go, as well as the future plans of Mosaic in this ministry. If we had 10 churches designate $1,000 per month, we would have enough income to continue shelter services plus full-funding for the day program 365 days. There are differences in the services provided those we are honored to serve at Mosaic, all one has to do is come, ask for themselves, at any time, and they will quickly see a ministry that cares, and treats people like the prized possessions of God they are is needed.
Thanks again, for your willingness to read through, and pray for the ministry of Mosaic. We appreciate it and also offer our prayers for your group, or congregation. Just let us know, we promise, we have faithful men and women who will certainly pray for you and your church.
Please pray for our future, our needs, and those we are called to serve.
