"The Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor, he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and the opening of the prison to those who are bound...that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified." Isaiah 61:1, 3b
Yesterday the ministry we are partnering with in North Central Troy called Oaks of Righteousness officially opened their ministry center/cafe. It is called Oaks Cafe, and it is where the old M&M Diner was for those who are local. This ministry center will be used for outreach and benevolence to the community. A couple of blogs below I wrote about the women starting this ministry, and what their friendship means to me. We are excited to be a part of this team working together.
We started with an open house from 2-5 PM. There was a good mix of people coming and going.
After an open house, we did a prayer and blessing service. We started off walking through the area and singing Amazing Grace
