Dear family,friends and church,
Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow. Give Me Shelter Ministries will be joining Conscience International to assist in relief effort in Lesvos, Greece. Thousands of refugees are fleeing Syria and Iraq via Turkey into Lesvos. They have left their homes to make the trek across Turkey in hope of a new life. These refugees are escaping civil war and ISIS. We will be assisting at the camp ,which receives immigrants, with the distribution of food, water, clothes, sleeping bags, and medical supplies. These folks have left everything they own and arrive on the island with only what they have on their back. From the island they will hopefully take the ferry to Athens. Afterward, their future is uncertain, and is the focus of political debate. All I know is that they are precious to God, so they are precious to me. We will be taking clothes for the people which will be distributed once we arrive. We are asking for your prayers as we head into an unknown and pray that God would continue to provide for His desperate people. If you would like to contribute financially to help us buy supplies, you may do so via paypal at our website www.givemeshelterministries.org. You may also send a check to GMSM, PO Box 864 Shalimar, FL 32579. Please notate in the memo: Lesvos Refugee Relief. Please look at our blog on the website Nov 3-17 for updates.
