We have Arrived

by Kevin Gamradt | July 14, 2019 12:20 AM

After getting settled into our lodging church, we worked on preparing for our Sunday ministries with Cedarcrest church and Good N the Hood ministries.  We will have a full week of assisting families in need in not only Minneapolis, but globally as well through FMSC.

Today we met our ministry partner - Cedarcrest Church. After leading some worship songs we shared a bit about being ready to be used in the moment we are in, and about how much we are looking forward to doing that this week.

On the Streets

This week a lot of our focus will be at centers focusing on assisting people with meals and clothing needs. 

Today we went out to the needy to bring water, socks, and homemade scripture cards.

We had the opportunity to hear some amazing stories, see some challenging things, and bring hope through prayer.

Feed My Starving Childern

This morning we helped make Mana food packs at Feed My Starving Children.  The packs are going to Haiti and potentially some of the same communities that our Minneapolis friends are from.  

The Twin Cities has the largest population of Somalians in the US and globably outside of Somalia itself. We are getting help locally and globally all at once.

Food N the Hood

by Kevin Gamradt | July 16, 2019 7:46 PM

Tonight we are helping Food n the Hood.  The money gained from our shoe sales is used to purchase food for those in need.  It is set up like a grocery store with people choosing what they need.

A catered meal is provided before they shop.  We have been helping with the grocery carts, restocking, interacting with people, and loading cars.

Every event they give a week's worth of groceries for over 150 individuals.

Today we partnered with Good N Hoods community home" the Lutheran Portage center".
