Missions & Love Gift Ministries … Fall 2019
by Vicky Shaw, Mission & Love Gift Coordinator, 2018-2021
I have so much information for you and it will not all fit in one issue of A Witness so make sure to be watching the website for more detailed posts about how Missions & Love Gift Ministries are being seen in our churches here in NYS.
I have reached out and asked, what is your church doing for missions? I got some responses that some are working on reaching out to the families of their church in their community through some special events spread throughout the year. These will be expanded upon in the coming days on the website.

As far as Love Gift: Rose Marie During has come up with unique approaches to have propelled the Love Gift idea and giving toward success. One is urging women to donate dollar bills in their purses that have either an “L” or “G” (Love Gift initial cap) within the Federal Reserve Bank seal found to the left of George Washington’s engraved image on the bill. Why don’t we think of doing that?
Please let me know in what ways God has you being His hands and feet.
How do you display His Love to others in your local community, workplace, and church?
