3 month report for 2016

The months of June, July and August have been very busy with 4,723 individuals having been fed thru IYHM. This is an average of 1,574 individuals per month and we are open only one half day per week. Included in that number is 100 hot meals served during the three homeless feeding Sundays. Our personnel use the rest of the week to secure food for that one day of operation each week. Bimbo bread company, Caesar's pizza, FirstNLR Assembly of God, the Fishnet, AR Food Bank, all regularly donate food and we must purchase a supply of can goods each week. Much is needed but we are so blessed with wonderful volunteers and dedicated leaders that are reaching out to our community in love and compassion. Prayer is a staple ingredient in our food line each week. Many people have returned for prayer and/or praise reports that demonstrate God's love and passion in our work. Think of us when you pray and please consider becoming a regular with monetary donations or perhaps a few hours each week as a volunteer. Our only desire is to minister to our community and it's people as the Lord would lead.

Mike Mills was our special speaker.

Our pantry served 423 families during May.  That represented 1350 people of which 704 were children.  Each month shows a significant increase over the numbers fed in 2011.  In fact, we ran out of food last week and are really needing a miracle to meet the demand of next week.  We don't want to turn anyone away.

Mary visited us again and was just asking for prayer.  We have the pleasure to minister in special ways with those that come to the pantry.  Many times they are weeping and just needing to know that someone really cares for them.  God's amazing Love reigns and abides with us.  It is a joy to serve in this way.

  Monthly Report for April 2012

The month of April showed 53 more families than we had last year in the same month.

14 new households for the month and a total of 301 households served.  381 young people and 561 adults for a total of 942 people served during the month.  A lady, by the name of Mary, came by one day just asking for prayer.  She had lost her husband, who had died, and other family members and she felt all alone.  We prayed with her and she received hugs from some of our ladies.  We not only have the opportunity to provide for physical needs, we are being used to minister to the spiritual as well.  God continues to bless and we are so thankful.  To Him be all the glory.

The Gospel Singing Program of September 17th was a good time for all.  Inspired singing and worship by the three groups:  The Hawkins Family, Johnny Pryor, and the Hallelujah Harmony Quartet.  The offering was used to purchase a cargo trailer to be used in the pantry ministry to transport the needed food and supplies. We ask for God's richest blessings for these groups, as we reach out to the unfortunate of our community.  A special thanks to Rev. Larry Skinner for his producing and promoting this program.  Bro. Skinner is the vice-president of In Your Hands Ministries, Inc and the pastor of Amazing Grace, Assembly of God church.

Fish Fry – May 7th, 2011 

 

On a Saturday, when the weather was very nice we had a wonderful turnout.  150 people shared in the good food (fresh caught catfish) and the wonderful ministry in song by several groups.  In Your Hands Ministries, Inc was blessed with $2,312 in receipts for the day.  There are many people who deserve a ‘thank you’ and several churches that participated in the preparations and festivities who went the extra mile in support of our ministry. 

 

            Fairview Christian Church, North Little Rock

            Smyrna Full Gospel, Lonoke

            Grace Baptist Church, North Little Rock

            Full Gospel Temple, North Little Rock

 

Rev. Ricky Dougan and his wife Angela were so instrumental in the day being a success.  Ricky providing his music and Angela working in all aspects to see the job done.  Ricky was the main man, because he caught and furnished the catfish for the day.

 

Thanks to Full Gospel Temple and Pastor Ken Mullen for providing their facilities and the music stand for the outside program.

 

A wonderful day indeed.  May the Lord richly bless all who were involved.
