“Ministry is not an option for a Christian; it’s a privilege.”
― Lori Hatcher
We had the unique pleasure of working together with one of our partner ministries Wednesday evening, the Austin Diaper Bank. This is a vital ministry which provides much needed diapers and other baby supplies to our community! They asked if they could come do a survey of willing clients to help provide needed data. While we usually just pick up our order from their local warehouse, there is little interaction with their staff. It was tremendous to have them on the premises and they also provided some valuable information to both the clients and us! Thank you ADB! Here is a link to their website if you would like to see what they are doing or even donate!
All praise to God, our Father and to Jesus Christ and to the Holy Spirit who continues to bless this ministry.
An outdoor stand alone donation box is now in place in the back by the ramp!
Since the Free Store is no longer operating, please donate food items, toilet paper, diapers etc ONLY!
