Our final Access-Life newsletter of 2022 went into the mail this week and since we cannot “snail” mail it to all of the ministry family and friends, we thought we’d share it digitally, too. :) It covers the big Fall Farm Day we had in East Tennesse and our new Volunteer Spotlight Section! So, check-it out, enjoy the pictures, be blessed by the words and know that God is still doing good things out there in the world. #JesusStrong, #waymaker, #promisekeeper, #miracleworker, #lightinthedarkness, #DisabilityMinistry
Fall is here but never fear as the Access-Life September #AL3IN3 video is here, too! Enjoying some Florida Sunshine in our yard under the trees with a great Sun joke, verse on good things from God and update on the good things God is doing thru the ministry. Check it out and we pray you are encouraged and blessed. :)
God was on the move this past Saturday as we had ministry going on in two different places on the same day. That’s right, in East Tennessee Shady Grove Methodist church and New Freedom Missionary Baptist church came together to lead our East Tennessee Access-Life Outpost team to host our first but not last Fall arm Day. In Central Florida, we had a group from Live Oaks Community church help us transfer our 15×15 storage unit full of mobility and medical supplies for our annual Belize mission trip [we actually have not been able to go since 2020 because of medical challenges] into one of our ministry trailers. This not only saves us monthly fees but take the first big step in us going back to Belize!
Now there were both two totally different types of ministry work but both important works for God’s Kingdom. In East Tennessee, the goal was to share the love ad gospel of Jesus with individuals and families living with disabilities. We wanted to bless those we attended with respite, fun, fellowship and hope, all in the name of Jesus. There were animals including horses, archery, arts, crafts, games, airsoft, hay rides, candied apples, food and more. It was a real Farmabalooza!
In Central Florida, we were preparing to share the love and gospel of Jesus with individuals and families living with disabilities by moving and staging mobility items and medical supplies that will be shipped to Belize and fitted and distributed to those in need at the Hearts of Christ mission. Two totally different types of work but both with the same goal: sharing the love and gospel of Jesus with individuals and families living with disabilities that are in need.
So there you have it. Sweaty, fun, hard, hopeful, engaging, fruitful God blessed ministry work in two different places on the same day and even at the same time. NOW THAT’S WHAT I CALL A REAL HEAVENLY DOUBLE HEADER! Special thanks goes to Kenneth Graves, Karen Stryker and Hannah Spalding for seeing that God work got done as He worked through the hearts and minds of His people to do amazing things. We hope you enjoy the pictures and see you at another Access-Life activity soon. :)
Well, it’s time for our August #AL3IN3 and we have a special treat for you as our new Access-Life intern Hannah Spalding will be bringing you the monthly joke, verse and ministry buzz. :-) So say hello to Hannah and enjoy the funny news, good news, and ministry news!
We put these NEWSY NOTES in the mail on August 19, 2022 and now we are sharing them with you. :) Our hope is that this summer’s newsletter gives you insite into the blessings of ministry and keeps you up to date of all the good God is doing through Access-Life.
The July #AL3IN3 is here…and it is still July. :) We have Access-Life logos, vans, chickens, people forgetting things, farm animals, ice cream, candied apples and more! Check it out and have a God blessed week. #ETNFALLFARMDAY
Ever wonder what fruit an Access-Life Expo and ministry Outpost can produce? Well, there are lots and lots of ways God works thru these events but here is great example of God’s growing in the life of Noah Klee.
He started coming to our Central Florida Expos as a participant and this past March he attended our Central Florida Outpost Spring Fling as a volunteer! Check out things from Noah himself in the attached video.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
Thanks to some hard work by our Ministry Support Lead, Kendahl Hancock our 2022 Spring Newsletter made it into the mail on May 2, 2002. This is a bit later than usual but given all of our health challenges recently – WE’LL TAKE IT. As we cannot “snail” mail everyone, I’ve attached a copy of the front and back for you all to see, read and share. I hope you enjoy all the good things God is doing through Access-Life!
