Our Social Ministry Team's mission is to make a difference for our neighbors by responding to their needs as Christians. We invite any new or current members and friends to join our activities and suggest new ones. Our team supports local outreach, such as Dover Friendly Kitchen, End 68 Hours of Hunger, Operation Blessing, and many more.
As of this past week Operation Blessing is again without an Executive Director, who just resigned. I ask that you all pray that the Board of Directors be guided by Our Lord to find a a new leader for this most important mission. I also ask for prayer for the staff and the many volunteers to be able to continue caring for the needy during this transition period.
Meanwhile the mission continues to serve so many people each week giving out free clothing, bedding, food and personal and household items. As I worked in the housewares section this past week I noted the need for kitchen utensils. We need can openers, spatulas, large cooking spoons, etc, etc. There is always a need for pots and pans and baking pans. Why not check your utensil drawer and find an extra that you really don't need.
Food is also always in demand. Let us try and see how we can fill the green buckets under the mailboxes during this next month. I have noted that recently they have not been very full. Let's collect canned fruit and rice and beans and toilet paper and dish detergent. Alternately, when you shop, do as I do and purchase some items that are on sale that week. That's all for this month and thank you for your prayers and for your support of OB.
