Mother's Day Local Outreach at the Mission
I wanted to show you all some pics of our Local Mother's Day Outreach. This is the second year in a row we have done this. My amazing friend, Carol, helped organize it this year. She put the call out, needing items to fill over 180 bags to be given to the moms residing at the Nashville Rescue Mission, in order to bless them on Mother's Day. In a lot of cases, these Moms are all that their children have. It is important to show them how special they are and to encourage them to be the best mom they can be.
Well.....you all came through. So many donated and then came together to pack these bags for the moms. First you can see everyone gathered at Bethel World Outreach to fill all these bags with the mountains of donated items. Many thanks to those of you who donated and to those of you who came to help pack the bags.
Also, I must thank all of you for stepping up to help Ashli in Ethiopia. She is totally blessed by all the support and soooo needs it. I also must introduce you to my friend, Kelly Bullock.
She is our new Ethiopia Missions Coordinator. She is helping me answer some emails and keep organized with all this and is wonderful at it. I am so grateful to have her. She brought her baby girl home from Ethiopia this year after she met her in an orphanage on our last July mission trip. She traveled with us and met her daughter there. How cool is that? Now baby Mercy is home and she is helping OH with Ethiopia missions coordinating. Woo hoo!! So if you have any questions about the orphanage, donations, Ashli, or the like, email Kbullock@Ordinaryhero.org. If you have a question that has not gotten answered by me yet, just email Kelly B. I am one Momma stretched in a million directions and get behind sometimes, as I'm sure you can imagine :)
Welcome, Kelly B, to the OH Team and thanks a MILLION for your help!!
