We are so excited for the things that have happened this last year at Outreach for Christ. It is such a blessing to be part of all the activities and see so many lives impacted for the Lord. Your investment in this ministry has meant that you are a partner in all of these amazing deeds.
This last year was such a great success. The grand total of children that received Christmas this year was 531. On the streets and in the jail and prison, we have seen 188 salvations. You provided 50 holiday meals, gave out 60 bus passes and 92 blessing bags to the homeless. You provided us with the opportunity to minister to 3 inmates as they spent a night with us before we put them on a bus to return them to their families upon release from incarceration. There have been 12 men through the Men’s Program. 20 children received a backpack full of school supplies. The furniture ministry was able to bless 18 different households with furnishings for their homes. 1078 single meal boxes were distributed throughout the year to the homeless on our mission days. The Outreach food pantry has provided food to 147 families with a total of 482 people. There were 12 church services held at Indian Creek Prison, 24 ministry visits to Virginia Beach Jail, 51 worship services in a local nursing home and 50 lap robes given out there on Mother’s Day. There were 49 weeks of Street evangelism on Fridays and provided food to 8 different Christian Events.
We are asking that you commit to praying for our Mission Malawi. There has been amazing growth there just since July when we started supporting them. We are so blessed to be part of these amazing happenings. There have been 583 salvations, 39 healings, 38 pastors trained in evangelism and 22 widows ministered to. Christmas was provided to 120 people there, including 85 orphans and 35 guardians. There have been 5 orphans sponsored for school fees. Also, 50 chickens were provided for eggs and meat, a field was rented that provided food for 100 people and our Outreach for Christ – Malawi headquarters building was obtained.
Our 50 chickens are really growing!
This was the beginning with our field. Those are local Pastors working the land. The field cost us only $25 for the entire year.
We desire to travel to Malawi this summer with a couple photographers and make some more progress. We will be having mission trips to the area eventually and bring back photos of the orphans in our area. There are over 300 there locally. We will make them available for sponsorship so they can continue their education. We believe $25 a month per child will make a huge difference in their lives and guarantee they will be able to complete school, have uniforms and food. We are asking our supporters to help us with the travel expenses to make this a reality. Please check the box on the donation turn around slip for travel to Malawi. God bless you always. Let’s make this year of 2019 even greater!
