Fall Charities...Who are they?

Well, as most of you know, our Fall Barn Sale is just around the corner and we could not be busier...
I just wish it would start feeling like fall outside...I know you other Texans agree!

One of the parts of our sales that excites me most is being able to highlight and support different ministries, charities, and non-profits both locally and around the world.

For our 2 fall sales we wanted to give to the orphans, prisoners, and widows. 
We are focusing on the first two for the fall sale and supporting widows at our Christmas in the Country sale!

First up is....

Parental Care Ministries

Parental Care Ministries
The Father's Love in Action
      Caring for children and equipping pastors in Uganda





Isaiah 61: 1 "The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because  the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor.  He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and freedom to the prisoners.
Parental Care Ministries exists to help poor and orphaned children of Uganda by meeting their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs in the context of Christian schools. We also equip 40+ pastors to spread the Gospel throughout Uganda.


 Please read more about their heart and showing God's love in action!



 Secondly, we are supporting...

 Karios Prison Ministry International


WHAT WE DO

The slogan of Kairos:
Changing Hearts, Transforming Lives, Impacting the World
is the essence of what Kairos does.
CHANGING HEARTS
During the initial Kairos weekend, Kairos volunteers serve as God’s instrument through which His love, grace and mercy are expressed to the participants/guests in a real and profound way. God begins changing hearts.
TRANSFORMING LIVES
Following their weekend experience, participants/guests are encouraged to take responsibility for their life choices and their relations with God; they are invited to engage in small accountability groups. Kairos volunteers continue to return monthly to provide mentoring and guidance through these accountability groups. It is here that Kairos participants/guests begin to replace old ways of thinking with new and they learn they are not alone on this journey. They realize there is a hope for a future. The prison environment begins to change; family relationships start to heal…..God is transforming lives.
IMPACTING THE WORLD
As the Kairos community inside a prison grows and begins to gain influence, the incidences of violence decreases. Participants who are released re-enter the outside world with a God-centered perspective and equipped to become productive citizens. Female family members find support, strength and encouragement. Incarcerated participants who are released re-enter the outside world with a God centered, perspective and focus on becoming productive citizens. Female family members find support, strength and encouragement. Youthful offenders acquire new God centered values and change their direction in life. Families are reunited with a hope for the future.
