Dear Friends,

Praying all is well within your households.

Here at the MISSION we are continuing HIS mission!

We serve “meals to go,” breakfast Monday through Friday 9-10am and lunch 12-1pm Monday –Saturday.

Food Distributions are only on Wednesdays (as a drive through), beginning at 830am and Senior Pantry the 3rd Wednesday of the month.

Since the shutdown of schools and businesses in mid-March the need for food boxes has risen by 99%.Since January 1st we have served 4166 meals to go and 2488 food boxes.  We usually receive an abundant quality and quantity of food from local grocery stores when we do “Food Rescue”. However, lately the stores are selling out of everything. We have had to purchase extra food to add to the stocks that we procure though Road Runner Food Bank via Feeding America. We are asking for nonperishable can and box food items to assist in filling the food boxes.

Our current needs:

Aluminum foil

Plastic wrap

Gallon & quart size bags

Toilet paper

Paper towels

Dawn dish soap

Bleach for cleaning

Disposable plates & bowls

Disposable silverware- mostly spoons & forks

To go- boxes for food

Emergency food, clothing, counsel and prayers are available by appointment. 388-5071

Sierra House is still in open. We are presently sheltering 3 women and 2 children.

With our Thrift Store currently being closed, we are not accepting any clothing donations, household items must be sprayed with a vinegar or bleach water mix or other disinfectant mist. We are losing revenue daily not having the thrift store open, with those monies we usually purchase food stocks, pay utilities and payroll, so any dollar amount would be greatly appreciated and truly bless us so we may bless others.

Financial donations can be mailed to:

Silver City Gospel Mission

PO Box 5198

Silver City, NM

88062

A very Special Thank You shout out to all those folks that donated for our new freezer, there are too many of you to list individually.

May God’s grace and love sustain and comfort you throughout these difficult days.

Amy Wagner

Executive Director

Happy Fall Y’all

Print page

Dear Friends,

Fall is such a wonderfully colorful time of year here in southwestern New Mexico. The Gila National Forest is one of my favorite places to hike and explore, finding solitude in God’s creation, especially after a busy week here at the Silver City Gospel Mission.

Although fall officially started in September this year, we are starting to see the signs of its coming around our communities. The days will shorten, the tree leaves will turn and autumn-themed events and decorations will flavor our daily lives.

The change of seasons can be an exciting time, filled with annual activities and holidays that we look forward to experiencing. It can also be unsettling if you are homeless and living in the streets without Jesus in your life. Our father cares for every one of His creations, from the littlest sparrow to the mightiest leviathan as well as the saved and unsaved. We can rest assured in any time of uncertainty that His love and provision for us will never fail. At the Gospel mission we provide Gods hope and love; through the services we provide to the lost, lonely and homeless.

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: Ecclesiastes 3:1 KJV

Ecclesiastes gives us many examples of seasons we’ll face in life: times of birth, death, weeping and joy. The Bible shows us that experiencing good and bad times in our lives is normal and to be expected. Though it’s easy to hold onto our hope in happy situations, we shouldn’t let changing circumstances cause our faith to falter. Jesus promised us in John 16: 33 that: These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

God is with us in every season of our life. When we face the unknown, we can trust that He is in control and working out every situation for our good.

This month, as we say goodbye to summer and turn our attention to the coming of fall, its harvest and Thanksgiving Day celebrations, let us remember the good plans that He has for us and our future,(Jeremiah 29:11) both here on earth and in Heaven. This focus will create in us a firm foundation that never sways in the face of change and challenge.

 

Gospel Mission will be providing 12 thanksgiving boxes to families with school age child as well as serving lunch at the Mission on Thanksgiving Day. If you would like to adopt a family or assist with the Thanksgiving or Christmas meals, please contact Amy 575-388-5071

 We are also providing Winter Prep kits to those folks in need. Winter prep kits will include the following: Tent, tarp, sleeping bag, wool blanket, cold weather hats, gloves, scarves, socks and thermal underwear, winter boots and hand/foot warmer packets.

Over the past six months with monies you provided we were able to serve 5830 hot meals at the Mission! Provided 637 children with food and clothing, offered 1447 senior citizens healthy food boxes. The Mission also assisted 1338 households with food bags. I personally was able to make case management contact with 356 folks in need, praying with most of them.

Physical donations can be dropped off at the Mission, Monday, Wednesday and Fridays 9am-12:30pm we are at 111 S. Texas St. (Behind Jalisco’s restaurant)

Monetary donations to fund winter prep kits and support our undertaking can be mailed to:

Silver City Gospel Mission

Po box 5198 Silver City, NM 88061

 

In HIS service,

 

Amy Wagner

Blessed 4th

Print page

Dear friends,

After such a long cold winter and crazy spring I can hardly believe that summer is finally here in southwestern New Mexico.

With some of the long hot days reaching just over ninety and the nights dipping in the low-fifties some of our folks are in need of: sunscreen, after burn gel, chap stick, bug repellant, rain ponchos (98₵ at Walmart), deodorant, combs, brushes, feminine hygiene products, shower shoes or flip flops, razors, baby wipes and bottles of water (10 to 12oz size)

Since January 2019 Silver City Gospel Mission has served:

6342 Meals, 1552 Food Bags, 4811 Households, 921 Children

Aside from our weekly Bible studies on Tuesdays and Thursdays, we have also started a weekly ESL (English as a Second Language), which began back in February of this year. SCGM also supplied Deming Asylum seekers with baby supplies, ie diapers, clothes etc. As well as gently used sheets and blankets we recused from the hospital.

 

We could not continue this work without your abundant prayers and monetary donations

Household Donations can be dropped off at 111 S. Texas St. Monday thru Friday 830am-130pm

Or mailed to PO Box 5198 Silver City, NM 88062

In HIS service

Amy
