Easter Hope

Today, thanks to the generosity of many of you, we were able to provide 30 needy families (with a combined 100+) kids with Easter goodies and grocery cards for a nice Easter meal. They didn’t expect it. They did nothing to deserve it. It was a just a simple surprise. A chance for us to […]

Everything sad is coming untrue

“And the King says, “Look! God and his children are together again. No more running away. Or hiding. No more crying or being lonely or afraid. No more being sick or dying.

There’s a lot going on around here!

Incredibly, Easter is less than a month away.  We’re in the middle of our Easter basket outreach.  Mission 2540, with the help of so many of you, will provide Easter baskets to around 125 kids (at least that’s what I think the total will be at this point).  If you’d like to help out with […]
