Month of LOVE
February 2020 Newsletter
Well, here we are in the 2nd month of our 70th year in ministry! This is the month of "LOVE". Jesus, in His time on Earth, and through His Word; asked, encouraged, implored, and even commanded us to love. We are to "love" Him, our fellow believers, and our enemies; the one thing we were NOT to love was this world.
In my 20 years of serving in mission's I have seen a lot of hurt, harm, and evil done by this old world; BUT, I have seen a lot of healing, restoration, and regeneration as well! I have seen lives devastated by drugs, alcohol, and poor decisions; and I have seen those lives renewed and delivered. Those restored and delivered lives would not have been possible if it weren't for the "love" you show by giving to the Union Gospel Mission.
This February, as we celebrate this month of "LOVE", can I count on you to show your love? Would you send a gift to help us continue impacting lives and demonstrating God's Love? Your partnership with us makes it possible for us to continue "Meeting Needs, Making Change, and Magnifying Christ!"
While we are celebrating our 70th Anniversary this year, I am asking that you consider a special "Birthday Gift" along with your regular giving. It would be great if everyone could give an extra "$70.00" in honor of our "70 Years", but I realize that everyone cannot do that, however, some of you may be able to give a lot more! This extra gift will go towards our "UGM 500" Campaign.
Serving Christ and the Community.
