Guatemala Benevolent Offering August 5

Dear Church Family,
 
We are writing these words in front of an orphanage in Villa Nueva, Guatemala. We completed our day of work here and we just gathered as a team – both KGBC and CRI staff to pray on a muddy, dusty floor that will become a new building for Destiny of Hope Orphanage. We prayed, asking God to bless the ministry, asking for His provision, and asking for children who need to know the love of Jesus to fill the orphanage. Just as soon as we said “Amen” and were headed to the bus, the director of Destiny of Hope received a phone call that a baby was ready at that very moment to be picked up and brought back to the orphanage. We are currently waiting for that child to arrive so that we can celebrate the goodness, and the faithfulness of God! (Thus, we decided to write this on the spot.)
 
Catalyst Resources International has felt God’s leading for this ministry, and has received licensing within the last month to begin receiving children at Destiny of Hope. They currently have one child, (with one more on the way as we speak), and are expecting more any day! They are in the middle stages of building their second building. There are currently not enough funds to finish this building, but CRI is trusting that God will provide. Workers are available to work next week, but funds are not confirmed for materials that will be needed for them to continue the job.
 
This Sunday, we will be collecting a benevolent offering for this incredible ministry. We are asking that you come prepared to give, in whatever way God is leading you. Our goal is to make these funds available to CRI as quickly as possible so that construction may continue.
 
It has been an amazing week and we can’t wait to tell you all about it! Thank you for your prayers. Please pray for Catalyst Resources International, and Destiny of Hope Orphanage!
 
Update – We walked baby Johanna into the orphanage this afternoon and prayed over her. She is safe and sound at Destiny of Hope! (Click the images below to read the photo descriptions.)

CRI and Feed My Starving Children

We are partnering with Catalyst Resources International and Feed My Starving Children to raise money to send a crate of food to Guatemala. Your opportunity to give is this Sunday February 4 through our end of the service benevolent offering. Our goal is to fill a container, which will feed over 272,000 children at a cost of about $6200.

Here is the promo video we are showing on Sunday.

New Sign at JCOC

December Newsletter from Judeo-Christian Outreach Center:

“What projects would you like someone to take care of for you?” When you are a non-profit and never have enough money for all the needs you are aware of, it is answered prayer when a ministry asks you how they can help. That’s what Operation Inasmuch from King’s Grant Baptist Church did for JCOC recently. They removed items that could not be fixed and they repaired or replaced damaged items.

Come visit JCOC and you will notice one of their projects; we have a new sign that was donated and installed by them and it looks great! They also provided a large amount of clothing and 12 Welcome Home Baskets for JCOC clients moving into their new homes.

Thank you to the amazing volunteers from King’s Grant Baptist Church who worked on these projects; Anna Alexander, Heather Burner, Jim Cummings, Donald Downs, Bill Forbes, Ray Kirby, Foster Matter, Dan Reed, Dan Rush, and Kenny Toombs. A special thank you to Cheryl Douglas who coordinated Operation Inasmuch and Pastor Ken Pruitt for his and his church’s overall support of JCOC.
