This past month the Together Ministry Center (TMC) faith journey has thrown us into action on many fronts. We are connecting with other ministries, developing partnerships, working together to see people lifted out of darkness and despair and into life!
A few glimpses of God’s love and mercy at work:
- Recently we sent a vulnerable young man, a husband and father in serious need of legal counsel, to a safe place for help. TMC covered the small consultation fee, and now we continue to pray and encourage this man and his beautiful family each week. The family’s issues will be neither quickly nor easily resolved, but we are calling on the Lord with our friends and reminding them they are not alone.
- In searching for a way to help someone needing a place to heal from a lifetime of brokenness, TMC called the Breakthrough Center for Women. Our precious, hurting friend –although she had taken major steps toward freedom already– had the courage to realize this was the time and place for her. Her courage to seek healing is at this moment producing transformation. Amazing changes are taking place in her life and in the lives of her extended family members, too. It is thrilling to share in this family’s journey of restoration!
- TMC provided overnight shelter for a woman needing emotional and physical protection. Express Missions International, a locally-based anti-trafficking ministry, is engaged worldwide in ending slavery. How grateful we are for the ways EMI is actively helping us recognize and combat the devastating reality and effects of sex slavery, even right here in north Mississippi.
Our hearts are overwhelmed with love and hope, because we know we do not labor in vain. And we do not labor alone! Thank you for your participation in the gospel. We are in this together. And NOTHING is impossible for the Lord!
“… and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit whom He has given us.” Romans 5:5
