Video Pictures of OIM

I have several videos on YouTube that correlate to the ministry I am privileged to serve at. I figured, rather than  have people running after ME, why not bring it to a central location? That having been said, I will be adding to this post as I create more videos…enjoy! I LOVE working here!

Call out for Food Pantry Increase

Hello, all! 

As many of you know, we had a VERY successful food give-a-way last Thursday and we intend to hold on every three months if God allows.

In order for that to happen, we  have to get more food. We have been unable to schedule any fundraisers for this month (June) and so we have to ask for help AND help ourselves by coming up with creative ways to raise money  to stock up. MONEY

Our shelves are mostly bare right now; we won’t be able to help very many people for the foreseeable future. This is what it looks like right at this moment:

And this is what we need it to look like (again):

Walking with the Lord, working for a nonprofit as I do, is stressful AND rewarding. Even if no one comes in here and sees this, I know that God sees and will respond through the people he’s chosen to do so- as well as anyone else who loves the Lord and can do something to help. I regret that I can’t post our PayPal account to this site without upgrading (and Lord knows I’d love to upgrade!!) but operating on the budget we are, which is anything but adequate, that’s just not a possibility, nor can I do anything personally- I’m close enough to homeless as it is. Trust is an important phase I’m still working on and like with most people, it’s no easy lesson. If you DO want to use PayPal and can help, visit http://www.oimco.org and utilize that PayPal account. 

I want to take a moment to say thank you to anyone/everyone who has prayed for us- you have sustained us with those prayers. As James 5:16 says, “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much

To those who have helped by means of physical  blessing, we also bless you! James 2:14-17 says, “What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.”

Please understand that I am not saying these things to inflict guilt on anyone- I HATE it when people do that, particularly in the name of “religion”. I am writing as led by God as I always do. He’s strong to save and we’re trusting him to carry out what he’s promised. 

I will leave you with this to chew on. Thanks to everyone; everyone who’s read this and liked/responded to it. I’m always open to constructive criticism or ideas. I believe the family of God is just that: A family. As the operator of this page, I am open to conversation, ideas, thoughts, whatever you choose to do. 

  

Food Give-A-Way Results

As many of you know, last week Thursday, May 30th, we had a food give-a-way. In a word, the results were…AWESOME!! We give thanks to God for the supply we were able to gather and store for this event, thanks to the contributions by Colorado Springs residents who gave above and beyond what we could have asked or thought.  A shout-out to my Father, who multiplied our food and allowed for us to feed 226 people, that’s 56 families, ya’ll. The largest was a family of 9, I believe. 

For me personally, this is huge…not only did I get to be part of “the other side”, I got to help plan it, enact it, and I give all the credit to my Father, to Iva DSCN1798 who did such a wonderful job directing traffic in the food pantry and getting the food out expeditiously. To Christine DSCN0753 who amazed me with her ability to multi-task, getting our guests to sign the sheet, fill out the application paperwork and get them in and out so that others could come. The line formed down the hall and out the door into the very windy air. I also want to thank Jenny DSCN0563, who along with me, took pictures of the events as they unfurled and I beg anyone who sees their face on this site to remember that this is a nonprofit. We’re still  learning and in transition. We will have a few changes for the next food give-a-way which we hope to accomplish every 3 months or so as food allows. Last but definitely not least, I want to thank our resident artist, Debra DSCN0780 who spent the morning painting and the afternoon serving. Thank you, ALL, for your versatility, your passion towards helping those less fortunate. I am proud to know you all and I know our Father is as well!
