Westminster Hunger Outreach

The next opportunity to serve in this food distribution program is on August 22 beginning at 9:00 a.m. until the food is gone. This will be a drive-through distribution, so the work will entail transporting food into vehicles. Do you want to participate? Contact the pastor [582-5088].


One Great Hour of Sharing

OGHS began seventy-one years ago in response to the devastation of World War II. In March 1949, a national broadcast on a Saturday evening asked Americans to give generously the next morning in their churches. A remarkable assembly of national leaders and celebrities gave their efforts to broadcast, and more than 75,000 churches responded the next day.

Today, OGHS serves people in over 80 countries around the world. Sponsored by eight Christian U.S. denominations and Church World Service, OGHS makes sure that we can respond to needs as soon as they happen and that tens of thousands of people receive support for ongoing relief, rehabilitation, and development.

Prayer Updates from Bangkok


An Uzbek mother and child were returned home this month. She was able to receive prayer to accept Jesus as her Lord and Savior before going. We have connected her to another NGO for follow-up.

We have received a new Ugandan and a new Russian into our international program center this month.

We have been blessed with a few wholesale orders of jewelry and attire that have helped to keep the women employed and feeling productive during shutdown.



Please continue to pray for Gomer-Sozo who is back to sleeping on the street, drunk and harassed by spirits. We will not give up the fight for her. Pray for her to be free of the addiction and spirits. Pray for our team to not grow weary in loving her through the ups and downs.
