Stop in! Sit a spell!
It’s been a while since I’ve written anything and I wanted to make sure that Overcomers International Ministry is not forgotten.
and myself, we interviewed – and accepted – three new volunteers.
Volunteers come to us when they need office experience and are fulfilling the requirements of either Employment First or Viewpoints/Directions via Goodwill Industries
for people on TANF (Cash Aid) or food stamps (SNAP). We are beyond blessed to have these new additions coming on; one speaks Spanish fluently and will be able to convert all our essential documents into Spanish for future Spanish speaking volunteers (Apostle Iva is from Panama so Spanish is her native tongue) and two others who know the computer as well as I do which will help me to do a more productive day and not have to do everything myself.
Seriously, though, I think I do a pretty good job of getting the things done that need to be done, fairly expeditiously, but as General Manager, a title I’ve never held before and certainly don’t want to lose, one of the things I must learn to do is DELEGATE and this is my opportunity to do so.
We have fundraisers coming up again, May 10th and 11th at Walmart on Platte Street and again on May 17th and 18th at the Palmer Park Walmart and I hope that anyone in the area will come by and see us. If you need food; if you know someone who needs it, please let them know about the Food Pantry at 2210 La Salle in Colorado Springs. Tuesday and Thursday from 2-3 is when we hand out food, having each family fill out an application and then giving as the family size indicates (a LOT of food). As the need and demand rises, we will open our food pantry more to accommodate.
