THANK YOU FOR THE SUPPORT CHAMPAIGN-URBANA

We appreciate the support of our community!

Isaiah 65:25 The wolf and the lamb shall graze together; the lion shall eat straw like the ox, and dust shall be the serpent's food. They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain,” says the Lord.

We have one a guest who has been lately coming to the truck very inebriated.  Ever since one of his supporters left town he has been like this.  Tuesday night I tried to talk with him.  He was in bad shape.  He kept leaning forward relying on me to keep a hold of him.  Well, he fell hard on the pavement. 

I felt so bad that I couldn’t hold him up physically and spiritually.  I’m sure we will see him again and I’ll try to talk to him once again.

We had the privilege of serving 122 guests last week. The biggest commodity that we give out is ourselves. We listen to their struggles and we’re happy to do it.  Besides prayer, the important thing we give them is a listening ear and some information where they can get some help, (dependant on their situations).

We need volunteers, when it is warmer weather we are busier.  We are also looking for drivers.  This is the only volunteer position that you will have to fill out an application for.  You can either contact me for an application or go into The Salvation Army at 2212 N. Market St.

We want the entire body of Christ to be represented.  It is amazing to see what God can do through us! .

We have a website, www.cucanteenrun.org.  There is a place for you to sign up on our calendar.  Go to the volunteer tab and click on the link to open up our calendar then pick the date and day that will work for you.   The Canteen Run is also on facebook.  Show us that you like us!  Also, if there are any churches or agencies that know of people that can use our help please don’t hesitate to contact.  Partnering Against Homelessness is also on FB. We're also on twitter at Barb Davies@cucanteenrun
