FAIRVIEW, TEX. – For the past 12 years, colorful baskets filled with ingredients for a bountiful Thanksgiving meal have been generously provided through our active Mosaic Christian Fellowship Seventh-day Adventist Church community services to help those in need within the McKinney area.
According to Victoria Mercer (center below) a dedicated leader in our community services, “This ministry started out with five families and has grown to over 60 families! Many of the names are submitted by church members who know those in need.” Some of these families have been actively attending a weekly Wednesday night Bible study at the church, provided especially for the community. Meetings are designed to target the family as a whole with an adapted study for the children, the youth and the adults.
“We are fulfilling the gospel command,” said Edgar Navarro (far right below), one of the study leaders. “Our focus is to meet the basic needs of those who are suffering and struggling in their daily life while offering our friendship, support and introducing them to our loving and caring friend, Jesus.”
Not too many months ago, Lupe and Rita Hernandez (in baptismal robes next to Luisa Navarro, left) committed their lives to the Lord and were baptized as a result of this outreach. They are now planning to spread the gospel themselves in Linares, a small village in Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Mosaic members are excited to see how the Lord is leading and we are honored to be His hands and feet to bring His love to those in need.
