His Servants

His Servants Update . . . 

 

Ephesians 2:10  "For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good

works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."

If you or someone you know is in need, please let

us know.

         Miscellaneous info just FYI.

It's not true that the power company can't turn off your power in the middle of winter in a typical year. They can if you fail to contact them and work out a plan to pay your bill and comply with the plan. This winter is different because of the pandemic. The power companies will not shut off your power this winter if you are unable to pay. But, you must contact your power company to let them know. You may have to provide documentation to verify that you are unable to pay.

I also wanted to remind everyone, if you utilize any space heaters, be sure to follow all the safety recommendations to avoid a fire. You may also want to consider replacing any older space heater with a new one that has an automatic shut off feature that can help reduce the risk of fire.

Also, New Life Church in Wanamingo offers a "food ministry." If you are in need please contact them directly to find out what days and times they will have food available. Their # is 507 824-3019.

His Servants was able to provide $400 in Walmart gift cards to the family in Kenyon who had a house fire on December 8th. The home sustained significant damage which was attributed to a space heater. The family who lived there have been in their home for over 20 years. Due to the fast action of a next door neighbor, thankfully no one was injured. The Red Cross stepped in to provide temporary housing and the Kenyon Police Department asked for donations for the family. The family has now been able to find a house to rent temporarily. The gift cards will help the family get necessary items that they need immediately including clothing and other household items that were destroyed by smoke, fire and/or water.

We also had an opportunity to help a long time member of our parish who was experiencing financial hardship secondary to the covid restrictions. That person was given $500.00 and was so very grateful. It was an answer to prayer!

We are so blessed to be able to help out even in small ways when others are in need. Please reach out to any one of us if you are aware of someone who is in need at this time. We may be able to help!!

Thank you for your generosity to make this ministry successful!

The Work Goes On…..

Even though our churches are open, we know it is still not possible for some to attend. If you are able, please continue to support our churches as you are able.  With the uncertain financial situation and employment issues some will not be able to continue as in the past.  For those in more fortunate positions, maybe you can increase a little so we all make it thru this pandemic.
