REFLECTIONS RETURNING FROM IOWA   WATCH OUR LATEST VIDEO  

Most of us dread long car rides. Our most recent fish fry trip to Pella and Rock Valley, Iowa, included a total of 1900 miles, 40 hours of driving, and bouts with the discomfort of trying to catch sleep between switching out shifts as drivers. But, it was all worth it.

We reconnected with some of our most faithful supporters and bonded as a staff. Carl, Robert, Ruthie, Nona and I made valuable use of our time discussing ways to improve our ministry both at home and among our supporters. I truly do believe that God is waiting to see how our staff responds to challenges within the ministry before He begins to prick the heart of donors, supporters, volunteers and prayer warriors for Cary Christian Center.

In Sioux Center, Iowa, we sat in a McDonald’s on a cold Thursday morning and developed a strategy to help maximize sales and organize inventory in our thrift store. While preparing sweet potato and pecan pies at Faith Reform Church in Pella, we developed a strategy to make both the fish fry event and all of its associated activities operate more efficiently. During all of our planning and strategizing, there was so much joy and laughter that it didn’t feel like work at all.

Countless times on the road as I sat on one of the bench seats in our van, Carl and Robert reflected on several past supporters in Iowa, Minnesota and South Dakota with whom we desire to rebuild relationships. In Rock Valley, the staff and I talked with Justice for All and Pastor Dan about developing stronger ties and working more frequently on volunteer ministry projects.

Perhaps my most memorable moment of all on the trip was being in the company of Calvary Church’s Mission Circle. This team of faithful supporters of the Cary Christian Center Parent Child Ministry expected to see Nickie Parker, PCM Manager walk through their door that Wednesday morning. Instead, they got me and I quickly got Nickie on speaker phone to give them an update on the ministry that they support. Little did I know that I wasn’t getting off the hook that easy. These ladies asked very poignant questions about Cary Christian Center staff, operations, finance and future plans. Talk about being on the hot seat!

But all in all, it was a pleasant experience blessed by some committed ladies. For all of those who continue to support us, thank you and we are working tirelessly to bring our ministry back to something that is pleasing to God. Finally, for all of our supporters who’ve lost contact with us, please reconsider, reconnect and refresh the saints who always think of you and pray for you.

Women’s Foundation Awards Cary Christian Center $25,000 

The Women’s Foundation of Mississippi awarded Cary Christian Center $25,000 for its parent-child ministry program on August 1. Cary Christian Center was established in 1971 and is one of the Mississippi Delta’s longest continuously operating non-profit organizations. The parent child ministry is the organization’s oldest program. It has been instrumental over the past four decades in reducing infant mortality rates in Sharkey, Issaquena and southern Washington County through educating mothers about proper nutrition for their infants, immunizations, breastfeeding and self-empowering educational opportunities. Funding will be used to certify Cary Christian Center staff in a well-recognized home visitation model at Florida State University, provide tracking software and market the parent-child ministry to create deeper partnerships in surrounding counties. “The Women’s Foundation of Mississippi has been one of the state’s major advocates and champions for the advancement of women regarding a number of social issues,” said Cary Christian Center CEO Patrick Ervin. “We are not only excited and grateful that they found value in what we do, but we are also anticipating the support, technical assistance and mentorship through the grant execution process that the Women’s Foundation is known for.”  For more information, call (662) 873-4593 or log on to www.carychristiancenter.org
