Many of you are aware that we have been serving alongside CareCenter Ministries for several years to serve the hurting and broken in the inner-city of Dallas. And for the past three years, we have been responsible for coordinating what is perhaps the largest Thanksgiving Outreach in all of Dallas Fort-Worth.
Every year hundreds of low-income families and homeless people attend to receive a warm meal, gently used clothing, hear the gospel message and receive ministry. Last year we served over 1,700 meals, and had 300 volunteers from different churches, ministries and organizations across the metroplex come together for one purpose, to share the love of Jesus Christ with the poor.
This year will mark the 25th anniversary of this event, and as such, it is our desire to make this years event the best one yet, but we cannot do it without the support of people like you! There are MANY ways you, your family, friends and colleagues can get involved. Everything from donating clothing, prizes, toys, and household appliances, to making a financial contribution, serving food or painting kids faces at the event. This is a family friendly outreach so even your kids can get involved! For details on how you can get plugged in, please contact us here. To learn more about CareCenter and the Thanksgiving Outreach please visit their ministry website or click here.
It is a privilege to serve The Lord, and we couldnt do it without your support and prayers. Thank you!

Mercy to the needy is a loan to God, and God pays back those loans in full. Proverbs 19:17 MSG
In our last newsletter we mentioned that we were praying about a couple of opportunities that were presented us to travel on mission trips to Cambodia and India this month of October. The Lord closed the door to both of these opportunities and showed us that while it is His will for us to go, this is not the season.
God had other plans for us, and part of his plans include hosting one of the amazing pastors we met during our mission trip Liberia. He is part of the core leadership team of Change Agent Network and this is his first time coming to America! We are looking forward to spending time with him as we introduce him to our culture. We will also schedule meetings for him to speak and introduce Change Agent Network to people like you. Stay tuned for more details!
Additionally, the Lord has several local missions in mind for us. On October 17th, I (Lyly) will also be volunteering at Rescue Hers Fall Fashion Show. Rescue Her is an anti-trafficking, non-profit organization, and the purpose of the runway fashion show is to raise awareness and support, as well as introduce the public to their new project in India. To learn more about Rescue Her and this event, please click here.
Also, on October 31st we will be partnering with a local church pastor that lives in our neighborhood to meet and greet our neighbors on Halloween night. We are still working on the details of this neighborhood outreach, but we know that we will need A LOT of candy, snacks, tracks and other items fun items to fill goody bags. If you would like to donate any of these items including the goody bags, please contact us here.
Lastly, as we mentioned in the previous section, we have a very important mission trip coming up to the inner-city of Dallas this coming month of November. If you are interested in joining us on this local mission trip and would like more details on the Thanksgiving Outreach, please contact us. And remember, you are called to be a missionary every where you go! You are given opportunities daily to make a difference in peoples lives right where you are!
