Thanks to you who answered God’s call for Ark needs in August: Thanks to local restaurants and their suppliers for the food we serve at meals. Many of our donors gave anonymously and stated, “use for whatever is needed”, and we are grateful as utilities have increased! Thanks to all Muskogee churches who wish to remain anonymous that mailed financial assistance or who keep calling to ask what the Ark needs. Many thanks to you who donated supplies and funds toward our Back to School event being done by appointment this year to keep everyone safe from coronavirus. We so appreciate those of you buying, shipping, and making masks for the homeless and children preparing for Back to School – Dr. Ted Hine, Becky Woelper Tallent, the Wells family, Steven Fry… Thanks also to the DHS workers who come to the Ark to assure paperwork and referrals are validated. The Ark exists because of God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and EACH of you – all ethnicities, skin colors, and cultures, all your gifts, skills, talents, and prayers. We thank you for your dedication as we continue to do the Matthew 25:35-40 work of caring for our neighbors as if doing it for our Savior.
In the 6 months we have been open during the pandemic, there has not been a single person participating who was diagnosed with COVID.
Thanks to everyone for wearing masks and cooperating with our safety precautions!
