I know it seems dark around us right now beautiful GEMS, but we shared on Friday (check out the GEMS After Dark video) about being the light in the darkness. Then we prayed together in unity for God’s mercy, love, peace and healing power to fall upon each other, our nation, and the world. We also released our burdens to our loving Father, so we can remove what is keeping us from shining, and then in turn allow God’s light to shine through us helping out those in need.
In the spirit of shining our light in the darkness, GEMS is still moving forward with our Shine and Share Program and are currently working with Light of Life Rescue Mission in Pittsburgh (their children’s program donating items for their Easter drop-offs including beginner’s bibles and snacks) and the Friendship Room in Steubenville, Ohio, with food items that they need.
If God places GEMS Ministry on your heart to give, your donations will go to funding these efforts. I understand though it is tough times for us all, so only give if God is pressing it on your heart. I can’t thank you all enough for your prayers and support. Be blessed, shine on, and keep on shining! You were made for it!
