I’m In Ministry!
We are all God’s children and need to be present to one another so we can learn from one another.
We are Asking for Your Prayers
If you’ve ever interacted, either in person or by phone, with the I’m in Ministry! offices you probably talked with Sharon our Office Administrator. Sharon was involved in a very serious auto accident late last week. Fortunately, other than experiencing a lot of bruising and soreness, she lived through what could have been much more tragic. Deacon Lou and all of the individuals that allow I’m in Ministry! to serve others in need are asking you for your prayers for Sharon. First please pray that Sharon has a speedy recovery. Second, please lift up Prayers of Thanks to God for protecting Sharon from much more serious trauma.
God Bless Sharon and God Bless Us All !!
Christ Child Society Honors Deacon Lou Primozic
The Christ Child Society of Cleveland recently awarded its important Red Wagon Award to Deacon Lou Primozic, founder of I’m in Ministry!. The award is made annually to an individual who has made a significant contribution to the mission of the Christ Child Society – “Nothing is ever too much to do for a child”.
Deacon Lou humbly accepts the award while recognizing that it is only through the efforts of all of I’m In Ministry!’s staff, volunteers and generous donors that the collaboration with Christ Child is possible and successful.
Christ Child provides beds and bedding to I’m In Ministry!. After adding a pillow, the I’m In Ministry! team delivers and sets up the items in the recipients’ residences. Any additional furniture, household items, bedding, etc. needed are also provided through the generosity of I’m In Ministry! donors. Books are also delivered to any preschool children which have been provided by the Literacy Cooperative.
Deacon Lou added, “Our recipients become a permanent member of the I’m In Ministry! Family. Through a program called Compassionate Care they will be contacted in the future and any additional needs will be addressed internally or through our association with other organizations in the area community”.
