There are a lot of exciting things happening at Charm City, I can't believe how God is placing amazing people in my life and how he continues to cross my path with amazing people...today I am meeting with Ms. Carter, she could very well be an HUGE answer to prayer as she's said she'd be willing to mentor and help a VERY special woman in my life. This woman begs for help every week, she's very sick, very pregnant and very much an addict. Ms. Carter works with addicts, woman who are H.I.V. positive and women who are lost, she's willing and able and an answer to a prayer I've been praying for my friend for a while. I am so excited about Ms. Carter and pray that my friend will be open to meeting her and attempting to get help.
Other exciting news, construction is going to happen this weekend for the Food Bank that'll be up and running at Charm City sometime in the very near future. The food bank is going to be opened with the help of World Class Cities Ministries (http://www.wccm.net/) and will be a part of their Can Thrive program. God has blessed us with contractors who are willing to donate their time and materials to help get us up and running, however there is still a need for three more people who would be willing to help with this project. These people would need to be willing to begin working at 7:30 a.m. this Saturday February 2nd and work through the late morning or early afternoon. Workers will help haul materials and trash in and out of the building. If you're interested in helping with this you can either contact myself at firstname.lastname@example.org or Shaun Wilson at email http://us.f508.mail.yahoo.com/ym/Compose?Toemail@example.com .
Other opportunities to serve include the following dates:
