Newsletter Summer 2016

Summer 2016 Update

Nehemiah 8:10
Then he said to them, “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord.: neither be ye sorry; for the JOY OF THE LORD IS YOUR STRENGTH.”

2016 Summer Update

Somedays you just feel weaker than others, you try to stay focused but your mind is consumed with the tasks to be accomplished, the needs to be met; everyone seems to want your guidance, assistance, approval on situations……you are ready to say “Calgon, take me away!” This is when it is so important that we turn to the word and encourage ourselves in the Lord. When I am weak, He is strong! When I am confused, He brings clarity! When I am overwhelmed, He brings me peace! Yes, the JOY of the LORD IS my strength!

2016 has brought many joys, and at the same time, it has been the most difficult year in a long, long time! We have made so much progress in caring for those in need, but the progress has not come without it’s own hurdles. My mother used to say to me “anything worth having is worth working for.” She was right! These challenges have strengthened us, molded us and solidified the need for this ministry!

We have many wonderful things to share at this year’s 8th Annual Fundraising Dinner. We are excited for what God is doing through Joshua’s House! The lives that are being impacted through one on one ministry, outreach, & our missions project within our local communities and beyond.

Enclosed with this newsletter is an invitation for this year’s Annual Fundraising Dinner. It will be held at the Clare Church of the Nazarene on Thursday September 22nd and will be catered by Arnie Hilts. As in the past, we are required to have a RSVP count in order to reserve your seating for this event. Although there is not a fee to attend the dinner, there will be an offering taken at the dinner. This IS A FUNDRAISING EVENT. If you are planning to attend or are interested in hosting a table this year, please contact our office as soon as possible so that we might make accommodations for you.

This year’s theme is: KEEP MOVING, it has inspired us to move forward and to give God all the glory!

Our Guest Speaker will be Paul Miller, board member for Michigan Right to Life & Chairman for the RLM political action committee. We are honored to have Paul with us and we look forward to all he has to share concerning Michigan being a leader in our nation for pro-life education and legislation.

We encourage you to read your invitation and share the opportunity to attend with friends, family, business associates, neighbors and like minded individuals that will help support this ministry as we “Care for our future, one mother at a time”.

You may reserve your seat for the dinner in one of two ways. Visit our website at: and click on the registration button, or you may call us Monday-Friday from 11am-4pm @ 989-400-3301. If you are returning as a Host or Hostess this year, please call and ask for Becki or Rene’e to assist you with the hosting process.

Thank you for partnering with Joshua’s House to support life and to love those in need. Matt 25:40 “And the King shall answer and say unto them, verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”

May God richly bless you,
