October Fundraiser at Sonterra’s Grill

Good morning,  I hope you are all well!!

 On October 14, 2013, Freedom Chiropractic will be hosting a dinner at Sonterra’s Grill, here in Colorado Springs. I do hope that some of you can attend, if you’re in the neighborhood. The tickets are $15 and all proceeds will go to Overcomers International Ministry. For more information or to obtain tickets, please call me at 719-646-5354 or email me at hhameed@oimco.org.

A.R.I.S.E. Event

Earlier last week, my boss, Iva, was invited to an event given by Goodwill Industries. She delegated that honor to Christine and myself as she had prior engagements and so we went and had a ball!

We had a fantastic time! We gathered 26 signatures of interested individuals, scheduled 3 people for interviews between Friday and Monday and networked with the other people in the room, the organizations represented ranging from free medical care for the un- and under -insured to offers for free GED possibilities including CPR and other worthy things to know. If I wasn’t so busy- I might try to get certified again as I was many years ago wink face!

In future blogs, I will be introducing some of the people (as soon as I email them and obtain their permission) that I met today because we’re a community and we’re all trying to do the same thing- help people, just using our individual skills and resources. By partnering up, I – along with OIM-can help more people, bring in more interested volunteers and doners. I believe God loves collaboration- after all, is not our relationship with God through Jesus the Christ, the ULTIMATE COLLABORATION??!

Following this event, I received an email from the man who invited us to the function, thanking us. I want to share it with all of you, withholding the name until I can properly introduce the people we’ve partnered up with, assuming we end up going that direction.

Heidi,

Thank you so much for coming, your presence and resources helped to make this our greatest event so far and we only hope to get better.  Yesterday we had over 200 participants come through our doors and we help 27 participants find employment 19 of which start work today.  Our next event will be July 10th from 9:30am-2:30pm we would be honored to have you again.  If you would like to attend feel free to contact me via email or call.

I am so blessed to have the privilege to represent an organization that helps the needy. I guess it’s because I am who I am  and my very recent experience with homelessness – off and on for the last 9 years- that makes me especially sympathetic and empathetic with the plight of those who can’t and don’t have enough to eat, places to work and live, etc. On the other hand, I have been  blessed in soooo many ways and with so many wonderful people throughout the years that it makes all the suffering worth it, most days.

**** As an end note, I am so happy to report that we have 13 interviews lined up for perspective volunteers. God is so awesome, ya’ll!****

Thanks be to God for his unspeakable gifts!!

The last fundraiser Overcomers International Ministry held was in front of Walmart on Platte Street here in Colorado Springs last weekend, March 15 and 16. We wish to extend a heartfelt Thank you  to those who gave so cheerfully and generously.

The nature of a fundraiser of this kind is that most of the people who walk out of Walmart who gave are anonymous to us (in name only, never in Spirit) and most assuredly not to God, the Father, and the reason this ministry is open in the first place.

Because so many stepped forward and gave, we were able to purchase foodstuffs for lots of families and we’re so thankful for you!!

Every time lives intersect in any way, an impact takes place and even if no one who gave to God through us sees this page, it’s important that they’re recognized as Proverbs calls us to “Let another to praise us and not the words of our own mouths”. With that in mind, OIM sends out a major shout and a Thank you!! May God bless you in all areas of your life-financially, emotionally and spiritually.

Matthew 25:34-40 says:

“Then the King (God) will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundations of the world:

For I was hungry and you gave me food; I was thirsty and you gave me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;

I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you visited Me.’

“Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?

‘When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?

‘Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and came to You?

“And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say unto you, inasmuch as you did it to one of these the least of My brethren, you did it to Me.'”
