Hi church family!
June Gan-Pain here. I can’t believe we are already in November of 2016! Our Kingdom Foundation focus for November is Vision Rescue. We are raising awareness and funds for this amazing organisation in India.
Vision Rescue started off as a relatively small non-government organisation (NGO) in Mumbai, India. It grew in response to the wide range of needs for the under-privileged, and has since set up five core focuses:
Education Buses and Beacon School in the slums
Mobile Health Care in the slums
Rehabilitation Centres for those suffering from substance abuse
Training to encourage self-sustainability
Counselling and restored lives for the trafficked
We believe we each have a God-given potential, which we need to strive to achieve. While we are doing that, we are to help others achieve theirs.
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25:40
We are very passionate about what Vision Rescue is doing; our long term goal is for us to partner with Vision Rescue, to support a Community Centre in the slums of Mumbai. November is jam-packed with different ways for you to participate in our Kingdom Foundation Focus on Vision Rescue. On Sunday 6th November, we are planning to take over Connect Café with delicious curries, the proceeds will go to Vision Rescue. On Sundays the 6th and 27th of November, we will have stalls selling gifts for your Christmas shopping, including:
Salamanca Skin Care Co. – Anna Rogers Thomason’s luscious range of skincare products.
The Tea Cup Garden – Robin Ekkel’s fabulous jewellery, succulents and candles.
Sea glass and pottery for Vision Rescue with Isabelle, Rupert and June Gan-Pain selling their two year collection of sea glass and pottery. Who else but God, can turn sea shards into money?
The proceeds from these stalls will go to Vision Rescue. We are also planning to grow a bigger Vision Rescue team, if you would like to be part of our team, please see me; I will be thrilled to chat about all things Vision Rescue.
Donations more than $2 to Vision Rescue are tax deductible. If you are able to give toward our Vision Rescue goal of $8,000, you can do so by direct deposit to the Energizer Missions Account.
In the reference note ‘Vision Rescue’. We’ll keep you updated as to the progress. Thank you for being such a generous church!
Okay November, let’s GO.
