Thanks to you who answered God’s call for Ark needs in July: Thanks to local restaurants and their suppliers for all the food we serve. We bless you daily. Thank you, to donors who increased your giving and wrote on checks and PayPal notes that you can do that because of receiving unexpected blessings. To the church families of our staff and leadership as we’ve met in person for the first time in months: Thank you for ALL complying with our mask, glove, and distancing rules. We thank God for safety in all the social and political unrest and for our prayer partners of all ages and social/ethnic backgrounds.
A shout out to Bernice Walker (103), Mary Wynn, and the Wilcoxen, Chuculate, McBride, and Rector families. (The Rectors restored the historic Acee Blue Eagle murals upstairs.) An unexpected miracle was a donation of $5000 from Lona Valley Church. Please forgive us for not naming more of You this month. We’ll mention you, soon.
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 40+ years of dedication in His love. We’ll thank you for more joint efforts as we continue 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!
