Ephesians 4:12 (NKJV) “for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.”
The Operations Department at Union Gospel Mission involves a lot of behind-the-scenes, but very essential and important work, by key staff and volunteers who all work together to ensure things are getting done.
Those in food services prepare thousands of meals every month, consisting of breakfast, lunch and supper. Our shipping and receiving staff and volunteers make sure the food that is needed is being picked up on time from our donors. They also ensure that the tens of thousands of pieces of clothing we give away for free to men, women and children every year are being picked up and sorted in a timely and efficient manner.
Let’s not forget our knowledgeable maintenance staff, who ensure the gears of the Mission don’t come grinding to a halt, but are a well-oiled machine. We all play a part as the body of Christ here at UGM to keep the Mission moving.
Please pray for our continued needs in food services, such as milk, eggs and produce. That we would continue to receive quality clothing for those in need. Pray also that the machinery would keep running efficiently to avoid costly repairs and downtime. Also please pray that the men and women serving here at UGM would be renewed in strength daily to accomplish all the Lord has called them to do.
