6.18.20 - Prayer Requests, Lots of Online Garage Sale & Recycle News

Prayer Requests

Our deepest condolences to the Tuls family. Art and Joan's Nephew/Caryn's cousin passed away yesterday. (This is Art's brother's son in Florida).

May God give you peace and comfort in this difficult time of loss.  


Carol Wyngarden went into surgery a little after 11am. Surgery is expected to be approx 6+ hours. Probably 6 or 7pm before she is out of recovery and in a room.

Please remember to pray throughout the day.


GOOD NEWS FROM THE RECYCLE TEAM!  We have a new person joining the OGS & Metal Teams: Terri Keeler. We connected with Terri a year ago through OGS & Metal Recycle. She and her husband love these ministries and as they were leaving for Phoenix last fall, Terri said she would like to help when they returned in the spring. We connected over the winter and then again a few weeks ago. She stopped in the garage Tuesday morning and begins working with us on Thursday, 6/18. Thank you Jesus for providing another team member!


AND GOOD NEWS FROM ONLINE GARAGE SALES!  We hit a milestone with OGS - in 2 years we've sold $20,000 worth of items that were otherwise destined for recycle. That's a lot of items and a lot of connections made with people in our greater community. God has certainly given us a unique way to grow His Kingdom and we are grateful to do His work!
