Here ls a little news about a few of the numerous missions we help support.
Rip Van Winkle was frustrated that his ministry, Opening Blind Eyes, was not even allowed to have e-mail contact with the prisoners he works with. He prayed for God to provide a way. His prayers were answered when he received a Father’s Day card signed by quite a lot of the people he works with. Since the prisoners initiated the contact, he can now contact them. He is looking forward to the time when they can meet in person.
World Concern is working in Bangladesh and some other places to provide education for girls so they can stay in school. Many poor families give young girls in marriage to older men because these families have a hard time supporting all their children. If the girls can stay in school, they can learn to support themselves and help their families, too.
The staff members at Matthew House are doing their best to help families of prisoners during this time, but they need prayer as their donations are not meeting the need for help. We gave them $100 last month, but I feel led to give them a $75 emergency donation now.
The Salvation Army is providing food, rent and much other needed assistance to families facing extra struggles during these difficult times.
