With all the giving in The Village Chapel was able to sponsor 50 backpacks for Urban Ministries in Denver. I talked to Dwayne Dokes today and he told me that they are getting real close to their goal of 700 backpacks. Last year they gave out 450 and didn’t have enough to meet demand.
It has turned into a great opportunity to reach out to the families in the neighborhood they minister in. When they kids come and get the backpacks they will be treated to a bag full of school supplies and a Bible. They will be treated to lunch and a time of fun and games which will all be pointed back to the Gospel. Pray for the Dokes as they distribute these on the 9th of August.
