Father we are different people from different cities, states, and countries. But You see us all and You know us all.

You know every need of every life represented here. Father right now I ask that You meet us at our point of individual need.

As our lives are in line with Your Word, I ask that You meet the needs of our lives in Jesus name Amen.

Mid-City Ministries

Over the last few months, God has given me the opportunity to work with Mid-City Ministries by raising funds and running the Sports at their 3 week summer camp. The work that is done through Mid-City Ministries is truly amazing and life-changing. Below is more information about this great ministry and all it does for kids in New Orleans:

Mid-City Ministries, a non-profit ministry, serves disadvantaged children primarily from the Mid-City and Hollygrove neighborhoods in New Orleans. Typically 85% of the kids qualify for free lunch, with 30% of the students from Hispanic families that speak English as a second language. The ESL students benefit hugely from a regular chance to practice their English in casual conversation. The children must cope with the stresses of living in impoverished neighborhoods plagued with violence.

In addition to school year tutoring and mentoring programs, Mid-City Ministries offers a 3 week summer camp (with no fees for the families) and typically ministers to 50-60 kids. The aim is to provide the kind of high-quality summer enrichment experiences the kids would not otherwise be able to afford or access.

Summer camp gives the kids the opportunity to develop their talents in art, drama, dance, and sports and serve the community through various service projects. Kids also explore academic topics through hands-on learning activities and learn Bible stories while developing new social and emotional skills.

Lord God, may we be grateful for our lot, and compassionate                                       toward all those who are suffering every kind of distress at                                                 this difficult time.

May we hold back nothing, and hasten to be the ministers of                                           prayer and mercy, like the disciples of Him who went about                                             doing good in times of need.

God’s Never-Ending Love

He’s standing at the threshold of every bright new day, waiting to be noticed, as you go your busy way.

He’ll guide you past the rough spots, and His blessings will impart, just follow where He leads you, as you hold Him to your heart.

When your busy day is over and the shades of night appear, you can trust that while you’re sleeping, His love will still be near.
