New Transportation Pilot Coming….

Many of you are aware that one component of Mustard Seed Missions is giving people a ride to a medical appointment, to work, or to a life critical engagement.  For the last year we have been using a combination of personal vehicles and county vehicles as they are available to do these very things.  We have some great news to report on this ministry opportunity; Venango County will be allowing us the full-time use of up to two county vehicles with all insurance, gasoline, and maintenance paid for and covered by the county in exchange for the continuation of this program.

We have talked often as your Mustard Seed steering group, that we favor opportunities that do not cost a lot and provide a way to offer a support and build a relationship.  So, this opportunity meets all these things!  Here is what we need everyone who reads this to do…

  1. Pray about whether being a driver is something that you would be willing to do on a regular basis or even on occasion.
  2. If it is, then contact us and we will give you the directions on how to sign-up. (See info below)
  3. We will be requiring a copy of your driver’s license so that we can perform a motor vehicle assessment, a copy of your ChildLine clearance, and a Criminal Record check.
  4. When these are completed, you will be an approved driver and we will gladly hand you “the keys” to a wonderful ministry opportunity!

We have seen God do some wonderful things in the last year in home repairs, household goods giveaways, mentoring and transportation.  We want to continue serving the Lord in this way in particular!  Please call either Pastor Randy Powell at (814) 432-8061 or Heather Mohnkern at (814) 671-0735 if you are interested in being a driver or want more information!  Thank you for considering such a request and thank you to all those who have been a driver in this last year!

YOUTH WORK BLITZ A SUCCESS

Mustard Seed Missions has been the recipient of many hours of labor and service provided by awesome youth and their leaders from Medina, Ohio this week.  Approximately 25 youth have traveled in from Medina Ohio to serve our community by doing home repairs, cleaning, painting, fixing, digging, etc.  These youth represent the Episcopal church and through this opportunity they learn that service is not only glorifying to their God but a reward to the community they serve and ultimately brings joy to themselves and their group.

These youth have worked hard despite the sweltering heat, grueling tasks assigned, and being divided up into 3-4 groups.  They begin serving early in the morning and return home in time for dinner.  Evening time is made up of reflection, devotion, and prayer as well as some fun times to be had by all.  Pictures will be coming soon showing what these youth are dong and what is being accomplished.  We thank God for the gift of these young people as they serve the Lord.
