The Mission Committee was greatly pleased with the response of the saints at Hamilton who supported our two mission projects from January until April. The church collected tubs full of needed personal hygiene and toiletry items for Karis Home, a homeless shelter for women and children in Baltimore. Also, items were shared with the Baltimore Rescue Mission around the corner that serves homeless men. These items were delivered to the shelter by Janice, Ruth, Debbie, and Pastor Greg. The Supervisor, Ms. Joyce Hinnant, was overjoyed.

 

Additionally, the response to the One Great Hour of Sharing that raises funds for the Self-Development of People, Presbyterian Hunger Program and Presbyterian Disaster Assistance was gratifying. Your generosity, through envelope giving and the fish coin banks, has been sent to the PCUSA headquarters in Louisville.

 

Our committee continues to unload a tractor trailer of food each month, donated by Target and the Maryland Food Bank, at the Walter P. Carter Elementary/Middle School to provide food for children and their families during the last half of the month. Sadly, most people who use EBT cards (food stamps) run out by mid-month. We are following Jesus’ command in Mark 6:37- “You give them something to eat.”

 

During May and June our mission project will involve supporting the Medical Benevolence Foundation that promotes health care through the physical presence of medical mission co-workers, education, disease prevention, and curative care, for those in impoverished communities throughout the world suffering from acute and chronic illness.
