Thanksgiving food pantry  

 

"And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him." Colossians 3:17

 

Last Saturday, November 8th VCC had the privilege of serving 265 needy families in our community by providing them with a box of food and a voucher for a Turkey for their Thanksgiving meals. So many of us take advantage of the warm food and family that we get to enjoy on this special day of the year, yet many in our communities are alone and unable to purchase the special food items that so many of us love and take for granted.

Thank you to all of our incredible volunteers who helped love on people, serve and make this day possible!

 

 

This is what being the love of Jesus is all about. Not only serving the needy in our community, but giving thanks for the sacrifice that Jesus gave for us by giving ourselves away. This is also how the original Thanksgiving began. The pilgrims came to America seeking the right to worship God freely, a right many of us sadly also take for granted. After a harsh winter and befriending Native Americans who helped them eventually survive, they sat down to a meal to thank God for all He had done. 

 

 

As you spend time with your family and friends in this Holiday season, don't forget to give THANKS for the gift of His love, His provision and goodness over each of our lives. And don't forget to share your many blessings with others!

Our Romania team is safely home! Below is the final update from our wonderful team co-leader Sheri Summers. We are so excited about all that God has done in and through our team members and are happy they are home safe. Most importantly, we now pray that the seeds that were planted in the lives of every man, woman and child that they came in contact with will grow and florish to Gods glory!

Our time here in Romania is coming to a close. We had such a great weekend with the teenagers. There were many powerful testimonies that were shared, one of which was Pastor Ben's.  His message really ministered to many of the kids. We also had many opportunities to spend time in small groups discussing some challenging questions, and being able to pour into these lives. The theme of the weekend was "Families". It was conveyed that God is a God of second chances, and that each and every teenager was chosen by God and that their life matters. Many of the teenagers opened up to our team asking spiritual, as well as personal questions. I am very proud of how the team represented Christ throughout the week. Many bonds have been made.
 
 
Below are some pictures of our team interacting with some of the kids. Some of the activities we did through out the weekend besides our one one devotional time was going to a Christian Romanian concert, taking the kids bowling, and ending the night with a Bonfire.

Today our wonderful team of 6 people are heading off to Romania to minister with Livada Orphan care for the next 10 days. Please keep them lifted up in prayer as they begin this incredible journey. 

 

Prayer Points:

1: Health, traveling mercies and unity over the team

 

2: For special connections with the children of Livada Ministries and with the people of Romania. Specifically that they would know the Fathers heart and love for their lives and future individually.

 

3: That lives would be changed, impacted and come to the saving knowledge of Jesus. 

 

Thank you for joining with us and supporting our team through prayer!

“Defend the poor and fatherless; Do justice to the afflicted and needy.

Psalms 82:3

 

 

 

A picture is worth a thousand words. Take a moment and look at the picture above... What do you see? What does it say to you?

 

 

 

When I see this picture I don’t see an orphan, I don’t see a young man just playing with a child. I feel like for a moment, for a brief catch of breath, I see Heaven. I see the Father holding a child... His Child. I see the peace and serenity of trust in the arms of a God and Daddy who loves us more than words can explain.

 

 

Every child deserves to feel and experience that moment. Every human on the planet deserves to know what it feels like to be loved, held and protected. This is why Livada Orphan Care exists and why we, as the church and body of God send teams to serve this incredible ministry.

 

 

There are two distinct ways that you can be a part of being the arms of God around these precious children. Won’t you join us?

 

 

 1: Through prayer and support for our team and for the ministry in Romania. VCC will be in Romania October 16th-27th. Would you commit to praying for them for safety, health and divine appointments?

 

 

2: Through donations. Starting Sunday, September 14th-28th we will be collecting a list of items for our team to take to Romania. You can drop off items at the Victory Compassion Ministries booth any of those Sundays.
