Treasurer, Texas State Assn. of FWB
I get encouraged every month when I handle funds intended to help the children served by Harvest FWB Child Care Ministries, because they put donations to good use and manage them responsibly to carry out the Lord’s work. They help those who cannot help themselves, so I believe they are advancing the Kingdom in a special way. I was especially encouraged to receive a $5,000 donation to pass along to Harvest that came from an unnamed individual at Lakehills FWB Church in Cedar Park. Pastor Wes Hood contacted me to make certain that the money would reach Harvest, and we got it through channels to the recipient the same month, as usual.
We heard from the Advancement Directors at Harvest that they feel truly blessed by the donations. Martha Stone said, “Harvest Child Care Ministries would like to thank the individuals and churches of the Texas State Association for their amazing investment in the lives of the Mexican children. Your gifts and prayers make a world of difference.” Steven Shotzman stated, “At Harvest CCM a child will receive daily care and love they so greatly desire. I represent our work in Tuxtepec, Oaxaca, Mexico. I would love the opportunity to come to your churches and share my heart for this ministry. Many Texas FWB’s have become faithful partners in this ministry, and I would love the opportunity to invite you to join them. Please feel free to call, text, email, or Facebook message me to set up a service at your church.” Bro. Steven can be reached at (918) 949-8825 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
