Autumn Ridge had great fellowship with Grace Episcopal Church today! Grace is hosting a VBS this week and they invited us for a luncheon to discuss all of the plans for the program! We are so excited to see how God will use each missionary this week! We pray that we will be effective vessels for the kingdom!

After VBS, we packed up toiletries and non-perishables and headed to downtown Houston. We not only supplied food, but also supplied prayer and discussion. It was an eye opening experience.

Pharaoh and Plagues

During story time at VBS, students learned about Moses and the 10 plagues of Egypt. We pleaded for freedom! We witnessed the plagues! But we saw the goodness of God through every fear and hardship. Praise God for His goodness and righteousness!

Stocking Up

This week we've had the pleasure of working on Mrs. Cindy's home, a local homeowner here in Alvin, TX. Our team worked together to bring in sheetrock and supplies to help restore her home.

After being boarded up for so long, today we were able to pull off the boards and begin installing windows for Mrs. Cindy, finally bringing natural light back into the house.
