Higher Up Job Skills Training

February 21, 2008

We began our jobs skills training last night. We turned one of our rooms into a computer lab and class room. All of the computers were donated and some local businesses helped with the monitors. Since we just need computers that run Excel, Word, and Power Point we don’t need anything fancy.

One of the best things that I have found about these types of ministries is what happens when people get involved with them. Afterwards the gentleman who agreed to teach the business side commented that from the stories he heard these people could really use the course.

I just think it is very easy for people to miss the hurting and troubled around them. Our ministries put us at the front line of hurting souls. I wish I could say that the offer of salvation through Jesus Christ was accepted as the answer by all but I can’t.

People assume that since we are a middle class community that needs don’t exist. People who get involved with our fellowship eventually discover an entire culture and community of hurting souls who could use a hand. I love our job skills training because that is what we offer, a way for them to do better instead of just a hand out.

Pray for the ministry because in the end the best way anyone can truly have life is in Christ. Thanks for dropping by. God bless.

    Praise God as his kingdom spreads into the lives of those around you. This is awesome testimony for the love of Christ for the whole person.

    I have a couple of old computers, but they do not have monitors. If you could supply monitor, I could wipe some of my personal info off of them and you could run the MS Office suite on them.
