We had the privilege of ministering to, feeding and clothing 98 homeless people ranging in age from 1 to 62 years. They included 1 married couple, 51 single males, 34 single females and 13 children. We served 6,213 meals and 4,142 snacks. We placed 1 single male on our waiting list due to lack of space; we referred him to other shelters.
MAXIE GOSPEL TABERNACLE: What a powerful day of worship we experienced Sunday, July 1 ! We were blessed to have John Hanks and his daughter (former Welcome House residents) join us in praise and worship; the Loosed to Worship Team performed in Sign Language with song; and we saw a number of the congregation come forward in response to the message. We left filled with a deeper understanding of God's love and inspired by this time of worship. We praise God for an amazin day of worship and the sharing of His Word.
UNITED WAY DEVOTED A "DAY OF ACTION" TO HELPING THE HOMELESS: Volunteers from Acadian ambulance, PHI and Atmos Energy gathered together at The Welcome House to work on the farm - weeding the gardens, reinforcing fencing surrounding the hog pens, and basically helping out where needed. We apreciate their help so very much.
NEEDS FOR THE OPERATION OF THE WELCOME HOUSE: First and foremost we need ylour prayers; monetary donations to help defray the cost of fuel, utility bills, butane (a very costly expense) drug and alcohol tests; toilet paper, cleaning agents and personal hygiene items.
