This past month we have been sharing stories from each of our fields. We have seen lives changed, hope restored, homes built, and community created even with the challenges the year brought. Everywhere that CrossRoads has been we have worked to continue our ministry and share God’s love in new ways.
In Louisville over 50,000 masks were made and donated to frontline workers and 3 missional homes were completed. In Shelbyville veterans transitioned out of homelessness and into 6 tiny homes and a community center in Veterans Village. In Appalachia relationships were strengthened and ministry transformed to safely serve the community. In New Orleans homes were repaired after a busy hurricane season. In Mexico the Refugee Ministry continued to provide food, shelter, and spiritual support to refugees seeking asylum. Help Build Hope built 25 homes across the country.
We are also hopeful for the new year. Hopeful that we may continue our new ministries. Hopeful that our new partnerships will strengthen. Hopeful that the world will improve and that we may play our part in improving it. And we are hopeful that you will join us in missions.
Many things are still uncertain, but we at CrossRoads are preparing for when restrictions lessen and we are able to do more of our ministry with volunteers. This year we can book your trip up to 3 weeks in advance – meaning you can decide to bring your group to any of our fields as soon as 3 weeks before arriving. Our field leaders will be monitoring the situation locally and planning for restrictions and the safety of recipients, partners, and volunteers.
If you have any questions, please fill out the form below or feel free to contact our field leaders or the home office. We pray that 2021 brings new relationships, strengthens existing ones, and brings us all together as a community that loves God.
