Kids In Need Update

Thursday, January 12th, 2023

From one counselor:

I did give a family that recently had a baby some Target and Crest cards to help out. They struggle consistently due to single parent home and many siblings.

From one of the teachers:

Our cafeteria staff village 3 siblings. They have developed a close relationship with the mom and were able to help give them an extra special Christmas. (pictures attached)

Coming back from break, one of those students had lost her jacket. Our cafeteria staff took immediate action and bought her a new jacket by the end of the day.

We have also used our cards to purchase multiple pairs of gloves for the cold. The kids know that they can come get a pair anytime.

Last but not least, just last week we began to roll out the program in the middle school. We’ll keep you updated as that all comes together!

We are a year into this program and we are seeing so many impactful relationships.

Thank you for supporting those in need and healing the brokenhearted.

Another Kids In Need Update

Friday, December 9th, 2022

From Megan, one of our school counselors:

I had a Mom come into today who has been leaving on unemployment since losing her job in August. She said she gets roughly $100/week. I gave her some Crest and Target Gift Cards.

Thanks again for all that you have done for our families! I have loved being able to bless others in need!

Our latest update:

Before Thanksgiving break, we were able to provide our Village families with a Crest giftcard to help get them through the week. I know this was a huge blessing to so many of them- either to help with a Thanksgiving meal or to help with groceries while their kids didn’t have access to school lunches.

Several of our Village families are also on the school’s Christmas Assistance list, so we are able to use the giftcards to meet their needs in this way as well! Thank you for the new stock of giftcards you dropped off. This will help us tremendously as we prepare for Christmas!

Our middle school principal, Mrs. Donley, is working on rolling out The Village into the Middle School after Christmas, and we are so excited to be able to reach more families! After she talked to her staff about it a couple of weeks ago, several teachers have already contacted us and are eager to get to work! We were able to provide Crest giftcards to these families before Thanksgiving as well. This morning I received this email from one of the teachers: “The Crest gift card that the middle school gave their family before the break opened the door for school and home to work together as a team.” 
We are also planning on putting together little giftbags for the kids before Christmas break with seasonal goods like kleenex, chapstick holders to attach to their backpacks, and fun Christmas treats. 
We can’t thank you enough!

The ministry is expanding and we appreciate those who are able to contribute to Servias. FATHER knows your heart and you can expect HIM to supply all your needs according to HIS riches!

A Doer Activates Blessing

Friday, November 18th, 2022

Be a doer of The Word, and not a hearer only.

James wrote by The Holy Spirit in his Epistle chapter 1:

22   Don’t just listen to the Word of Truth and not respond to it, for that is the essence of self-deception. So always let his Word become like poetry written and fulfilled by your life!

23 If you listen to the Word and don’t live out the message you hear, you become like the person who looks in the mirror of the Word to discover the reflection of his face in the beginning.

24 You perceive how God sees you in the mirror of the Word, but then you go out and forget your Divine origin.

25 But those who set their gaze deeply into the perfecting law of liberty are fascinated by and respond to the Truth they hear and are strengthened by It—they experience God’s blessing in all that they do!

26 If someone believes they have a relationship with God but fails to guard his words then his heart is drifting away and his religion is shallow and empty.

27 True spirituality that is pure in the eyes of our Father God is to make a difference in the lives of the orphans, and widows in their troubles, and to refuse to be corrupted by the world’s values.

This is why Servias strongly supports the Kids in need.  We have protected the purity of the project by supplying assistance through the local school teachers and counselors who see these kids every weekday.  They clearly know what kids are in need of.

And In chapter 2:

14  My dear brothers and sisters, what good is it if someone claims to have faith but demonstrates no good works to prove it? How could this kind of faith save anyone?

15 For example, if a brother or sister in the faith is poorly clothed and hungry

16 and you leave them saying, “Good-bye. I hope you stay warm and have plenty to eat,” but you don’t provide them with a coat or even a cup of soup, what good is your faith?

17 So then faith that doesn’t involve action is phony.

18 But someone might object and say, “One person has faith and another person has works.” Go ahead then and prove to me that you have faith without works and I will show you faith by my works as proof that I believe.

Our position is further supported in Isaiah chapter 1, written by THE SPIRIT:

17 Learn what it means to do what is good by seeking righteousness and justice! Rescue the oppressed. Uphold the rights of the fatherless and defend the widow’s cause.

And in Psalm 82:

3  “Defend the defenseless, the fatherless and the forgotten, the disenfranchised and the destitute.

4 Your duty is to deliver the poor and the powerless; liberate them from the grasp of the wicked.

And finally in Deuteronomy chapter 10:

18   He administers justice for the fatherless and the widow, and Loves the stranger, giving him food and clothing.

There is no question what is in FATHER’S Heart thus we are acting on It.  We are laying up Treasures in Heaven!  It all about yielding to THE SPIRIT and manifest the Goodness of GOD.  Our acts of Love promote the flow of blessings to us and through us for the benefit of others.

Paul affirms this when he wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 3:

20  Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.

The kids in need have been going to the school for a free lunch each weekday. The cafeteria manager hands out our food and gift cards as appropriate. We have replenished their cards today.

Thank you for your joyful contributions!

Kids In Need Update

Wednesday, March 9th, 2022

We continue to disburse funds by supplying food and clothing cards to the kids in need. Additionally, we helped a teacher who was in desperate economic need as The Holy Spirit directed.

We are making long-term investments in The Kingdom where neither moth nor rust can corrupt. FATHER is well aware of our cheerful giving. My wife and I give above the tithe for we believe this is the best investment we can make with our resources. It insures a greater harvest for our future expansion of giving. I have learned by experience over the years of this reality.

As Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in:

Philippians 4:17-20 TPT
I mention this not because I’m requesting a gift, but so that the fruit of your generosity may bring you an abundant reward. 18 I now have all I need—more than enough—I’m abundantly satisfied! For I’ve received the gift you sent by Epaphroditus and viewed it as a sweet sacrifice, perfumed with the fragrance of your faithfulness, which is so pleasing to God! 19 I am convinced that my God will fully satisfy every need you have, for I have seen the abundant riches of glory revealed to me through the Anointed One, Jesus Christ! 20 And God our Father will receive all the glory and the honor throughout the eternity of eternities! Amen!

We have delivered our latest commitment to assist the Kids In Need.  This is consisting of food gift cards and Target gift cards to be used for clothing.  The school superintendent maintains the inventory of cards until the teachers, counselors, and/or principals request cards to hand out to their students.  This allows us to maintain accountability and assures us that the Kids receive the benefit.  Their parents benefit as well when they receive the Seed you and I are sowing into their family.  Thank you for your continued support!

Kids In Need- Another Testimony

Wednesday, January 19th, 2022

Good afternoon, We are purchasing a coat for a 7th grade student named Hxxx Esxxxxxx.  He was called in recently and we were told it was too cold for him to walk.  I called him in and asked him if a coat would help him be able to get here on cold days and he said yes so we picked one out on Amazon.  He seemed very excited about it.  Thank you Servias Ministries for helping us help our kids!!!
