Thanks Again, Volunteers in Mission 2022 Team
As I look back on the busy month of May, I want to recognize the fine work and loving support our V.I.M. Team both gave and received during the work week at Midwest Missions Distribution Center May 1-5. During the week of May 23, the last shipment of the 48,000 promised Rice Meal packages left MMDC for the Ukraine, so our team and our church can feel proud that we contributed substantially to that effort. Our assembly lines were fine-tuned by the end of that week, and there were a few sore backs, legs, and feet, but our team spirit was strong. One of our team even worked with a still-healing injured wrist, and never complained once!
My sincere thanks, also, to those who wrote kind, affirming notes to each one of us— we opened them right after we arrived at our lodging, and they were so meaningful as we carried out our work. Thank you as well to those of you in this congregation who have given money to MMDC’s Ukraine Rice Meal commitment.
If you have a chance, I hope you will talk to one or more of our Volunteers about his/her experience and think about reaching out to MMDC by volunteering even for a day in their Chatham , IL facility, or, better yet, think about and pray about joining our team in May of 2023.
