Year End Update

Well, it has been an awesome first year of learning, meeting new folks and spreading the Good News to the homeless community in downtown Augusta. While the first year has taught us many new lessons, we have found several truths to be consistent:

1. God is working in downtown Augusta in numerous ways
2. There is an awesome opportunity and need for local folks to get involved in our community
3. We have a daily impact on the people we meet, and potentially an everlasting impact!

We have also been blessed with contributions and donations, and the partnership with Fireside Ministries and Industries. However, since we make trips every other week, and average seeing 60+ folks a trip you can imagine how any supplies we build up diminish quickly. Currently, our biggest areas of need are toiletries (soap, deodorant, shampoo) and winter clothing (stocking caps, gloves, socks, jackets). We are also in need of a self storage unit where we can store supplies and clothing. If you can help us with any of these we'd be most grateful.

Thank you for taking a few minutes to read about this ministry, and we ask that you pray for our continued progress. We would love to have anyone join us for an early morning trip! We leave out from Warren Baptist Church's parking lot every other Wednesday at 6:45am. We hope you'll consider joining us.

From all of us at Kingdom Here Ministries we wish you a Christmas filled with Christ's blessings and a New Year of love and HOPE!
