"Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song." Pope John Paul II
Greetings Easter people, and thank you, thank you, thank you for everything you do to touch so many lives locally and throughout the world with the love of Jesus Christ!
For Mission Central, the month of March saw 104 interactions that touched almost 17,000 lives with almost $43,000 of God's resources. These included outreach throughout Pennsylvania, to the Congo, Haiti, the Czech Republic, West Virginia, Kentucky, Maryland, Delaware, New York, and Washington D.C. Overall for 2012 so far, these resources have a distribution of 10% within Pennsylvania and 74% nationally, with the remaining 16% disbursed internationally. In combination with our in-house ministry partners, we disbursed almost $452,000 of resources from the building in March. How amazing is that!
In reality though, March at Mission Central was more about incoming shipments than disbursements. We were blessed to receive 6 tractor trailers of seasonal items from Giant foods. These are Autumn, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's items, some of which we have already redistributed to local ministries. If you have a need-or know an organization that does-to use these types of items in an outreach ministry, please let me know.
