Outreach to 500 families of Burmese, Nepalese, and Vietnamese Refugees in Charlotte


Outreach to 500 families of Burmese, Nepalese, and Vietnamese Refugees in Charlotte:

CMM and Freedom Ministries Update
God is so good!  Recently, we gave away about 500 Thanksgiving dinners to people in need in Charlotte. About twenty volunteers helped us distribute Thanksgiving dinner in an apartment complex off Central Avenue.  People were very excited and grateful to receive the food.  Most of the recipients are refugees from Burma, Nepal, and Vietnam.  They have very little resources and many struggle to make ends meet.  One volunteer commented that the area seemed like a Third World Country, because children were without shoes or coats.
God is really moving in that area!  We were blessed with a Burmese translator with a heart to minister the love of Jesus.   There were many salvations on our visits to the neighborhood.   In addition to the Thanksgiving dinners, we spent two weeks delivering truckloads of rice, bread, flour and other necessities.  We were blessed to give away over 100 winter coats. Many people that were going to do without now have a winter coat to keep them warm.
Freedom Ministries has two Christmas Outreaches planned for December.  One will be in the apartment complex off Central Avenue.  The other one will be at Compare Foods on North Sharon Amity.  We will have gifts, food and music.  People will also hear about the love of Jesus and the meaning of Christmas.  We need: intercession, donors, face painters, balloon pass-outs. Contact Pastor Joe Leone at (704) 890-4670.
