Prayers for the Children of South Sudan: On Sunday, February 19th many of us had the opportunity to select one or
more of our 18 beautiful children from Grace Home in South Sudan to pray for throughout this year. Pastor Kristie named and lifted up each of our children in prayer that day. If you were not able to select a child and would like to, we will have another opportunity during our Meet and Greet on Sunday, March 4th. And Libby Dearing will soon be sending us the pictures and bios of the remaining 18 children from Grace Home to also pray for this year. We asked how we could stay connected to our orphaned children of South Sudan, and Trinity has been blessed with this answer.
Prayers for the People of South Sudan: Libby and Fred Dearing sent a brief note to ask that we also pray for South Sudan as a whole. They have now declared a part of South Sudan as an area of famine due to the war and economic crisis. The children want to return, but it doesn't look like it will happen for a few years at least. Remember the children are currently living in a refugee camp in Uganda with the hope of moving them to a 3 home compound where they can live and continue their studies. This recent news is most disappointing for all.
Warm Coats and Hoodies: Trinity you once again responded to a need in our community by giving $935.00 to our Lenoir City Family Resource Center for warm coats and hoodies for children in our local school system. Thank you!!! You are a generous church and your generosity has made a difference in the lives of children in need.
Lenoir City Children's Elementary Garden: From May through July of 2016 members of Trinity watered, weeded and maintained the Lenoir City School's Elementary Garden for the summer months. In February we were asked if we might consider a "winter cleanup." We said Yes. Jane Whitaker and Jo Alison Cortez, along with Mary Harding of the LC Family Resource Cen- ter tore out the old to make way for the new plantings anticipated this spring.
Mattress and Box Springs: This important outreach was omitted from our February Echo by mistake. In January Bill Harris and David Lee delivered four (4) box springs and mattresses, along with a set of sheets for each bed to a family whose Christmas tree caught on fire and the family home burned. Thanks, fellas for continuing to be of service.
THANK YOU all for your continuous generosity and your caring in reaching our and responding to others in need.
