Summer Update

The Lord was at work ahead of the covid-19 pandemic to assemble an incredible team of young adults to serve this summer at MCH.  He knew exactly who and what we would need to help us navigate the uncharted waters we find ourselves in.  The 12 ‘critters’ He sent us are amazing!  They are truly gifted and are making a huge difference at MCH!
Because of their commitment to serve alongside us we’ve been able to continue our homebound deliveries, assist the homeless, and distribute food to hundreds of residents 3 days a week.  They also enabled us to re-open our Kids and Youth Clubs.  It’s taking a lot more work than normal because we’re doing our best to keep those we serve safe.  Instead of having larger groups we are offering multiple sessions at both centers so we can limit the number at any one time.  It wouldn’t be possible without their help!  This allows us to maintain proper social distancing and cleaning procedures.  The really great thing is the smaller groups model allows for more one on one time between the critters and the kids.  Depending on the status of covid-19 restrictions we are hoping to re-open our senior adult programs in July.

Strength, Trials and Victory in Christ on the Streets of Houston

I met Dennis about 4 years ago.  He and his wife Felicia were homeless, and every couple of days they came to the Gano Center in need of food and basic necessities.  They lived in their car, were both unemployed, and Felicia had a severe drug addiction.  But I was always impressed by the way Dennis cared for and loved her despite her addiction.
