Pictures of the fire can be found at this link. We were on our way to Prairie Creek when we saw the fire trucks and police. The fire was pretty much contained when we arrived.
Please pray for the Muncie Mission.
From today’s Star Press (7-5-10). Here is how you can help.
Here are the mission’s most pressing needs:
• Meals: The kitchen was damaged and food ruined, meaning the mission doesn’t have a way to feed the men who live there. Don Ford, director of development, is looking for churches, restaurants or other groups of people to provide meals for at least the next two weeks. Groups would need to be prepared to feed at least 50 people — perhaps as many as 75 — and provide all table settings. Call Ford at 212-0461 to sign up to provide either breakfast, lunch or dinner.
• Men’s clothing: Clean clothing — including socks and underwear — can be dropped off at the New Life Center, which houses the resale shop.
• Money: Cash donations can be sent to the Muncie Mission, P.O. Box 2349, Muncie, Indiana 47307. Donations also can be made online at www.munciemission.org.
Note: The mission’s electrical system was damaged by the fire, and that has knocked out its telephone system as well. Temporarily, the mission has assigned this cell phone number as its main number: 744-3902.
