From the Executive Director

As we look at around today we find that more and more we are becoming a throw away society.   Instead of making quality products that can be repaired we are making products that are inexpensive, then as they wear out they are tossed into the garbage. Today it is cheaper to throw away TVs, radios, clothes, appliances and many other things than it is to fix them. Today we receive many donations that are like new but because people are tired of them they are just thrown or given away.

Sadly that same attitude has carried over into lives. If a person doesn’t measure up throw him away. As we look at many of today’s youths we see troubled young people, are we just going to throw them away? We are willing to abort unborn babies and throw them away. What are we going to do with the elderly? Are we going to throw them away and their wealth of experience and wisdom because they are old and we are tired of them?

While many things are getting old, out dated and thrown away there is one thing that has never lost it’s power and that’s the cross that Jesus died on two thousand years ago. That cross had resurrection power then and it still does today. Today, for those whose lives seem helpless and hopeless, there is still new life in that cross for them. So we can still throw away all the cheap stuff, but we don’t have to throw away lives, all we have to do is take them to that cross and let them be renewed!!

 Power In Prayer

Prayer is a very important part of any ministry. Without prayer and the work of God going on the Mission and Friendship House would become like any other social service. With the prayer of God’s people we will be able to continue to meet the physical and   spiritual needs, providing hope, and giving a new start to many lives.

The Mission has included a place for your prayer requests HERE. If you submit a prayer request, during our staff meeting we will pray for you. As you send us your needs we will list them and seek God on your behalf.

Today I would like to invite you to sign up to be a prayer partner for the Mission and Friendship House. CLICK HERE to sign up to be a Prayer Partner. We are requesting your prayers for this work and on a regular basis we will send an e-letter advising you of the needs that you can help us pray for.

Thanks so much,

– Gary Rowell
