Providing a Hand Up to a better Life!
Hello Friends, Just taking a few minutes to share with you where we are at the Hand Up Houses. Things are going smoothly. This past weekend we had an individual come and stay at the women's house giving a much needed break for the house manager Ms. Tammie. We also had a host family take in the man from men's house giving Mr. Randy a break as well. This week we added a female to the women's house. We are excited about working with her. There is another female approved to come in and this could happen next week. Continue to pray for the leadership of our homes. Randy at the men's house feels God leading him to move on soon. Pray we find the man God has in mind to be the leader of this home.
Thanks to all of you who have helped out in some way. God is working mightily in our first two participants and we are convinced the best is yet to come. If you have a church or business who would give us an opportunity to come and share we would love it. I could come and bring any of our participants and let you see what God is doing. Sunday or Wednesday nights will work most any time. Sunday mornings can be scheduled as well if this will work best for you. Just let me know.
Those of you who want to get involved just fill out the volunteer information sheet and let us get in touch to answer any of your questions and find the perfect fit for to in HU!
Here are some more ways you can all help:
*Become a monthly partner ! Or encourage your employer or church to support Hand Up monthly.
*Help us connect with funding opportunities to continue the needed work on houses (roof and porch).
*Consider being a volunteer at one of the houses (a volunteer application is attached) Consider being a “Weekend Warrior”. At least two weekends a month we want to give our house managers some time off. We can do this two ways: approved individuals come to the house and stay for a specific time, or for approved homes and families the participants can stay the weekend with a host family. If you are interested get in touch with me or my wife Tammi and we can give more details.(respond to email or call at 423-602-4098 for more information) ahandupministry.com is our web page.
Cant wait to hear how you might help us give a Hand UP to someone who needs it!
