Network News - August/September 2017

Summer blessings to all!

I hope your summer has been safe and healthy. It certainly has been another interesting season with many areas across the country dealing with challenges due to weather. We know that challenges are a part of everyone’s life and we often see this in our faith communities. Our ministry provides us with the gift of walking with those who are suffering with life challenges every day. As we serve those in need, we are blessed that our communities of faith are supporting our work and remind us that we do not walk alone on our journey. Soon summer will be behind us and we’ll begin a new ministry season finding new ways to serve others. My prayer is for yours to be abundant and full! As always, get in touch if we can be of any assistance.
