2020 has brought so many changes for all of us. Join us as we lean into the God named "I am" and embrace what is. Don't attempt to adjust your device settings, over the next couple of months you'll be seeing more changes to our website and social media. 2020 will be the year for which you see us more clearly and us, you, and most importantly that God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Gear Up and Support Chosen!
As part of a local initiative to help organizations recover from the Coronavirus shutdown, Iron Empire Clothing is helping us to stay connected with you all and promote an easy way for us to recuperate loss of income due to trip cancellations.
Purchase of this limited edition Chosen merchandise will directly profit the ministry.
Most of us are still being asked to stay put, but we are confident that the time will come for us to be together again. We certainly hope those who have directly worked with Chosen, internationally or domestically, will consider purchasing these items. Regardless of affiliation, we believe the message can be promoted by any person of any creed and can be shared with all your friends and family.
Are you ready to help? Let everyone know:
Here I am! Send me to my neighbor’s across the street, the border, or the ocean!
Every life we encounter will be enriched and transformed with the hope, knowledge and love of Jesus Christ.
Thank you Chosen! I recently borrowed a transport wheelchair and that allowed my mother to leave her home to celebrate her birthday!
Visiting Nurses delivered a shower chair to our home that they picked up from your organization. I am now able, with help, to take an occasional shower. Thank you.
A woman in her 40’s came in and asked if we had a wedge pillow. When I brought it down the steps, her face lit up in excitement. She said that though her father may only have a few months more on this earth, this pillow would help to keep the fluids from building up in his body and make him more comfortable. Gulp... how do you respond when someone shares that with you? I continue to be humbled and blessed daily in this ministry. Thank you to whomever donated that wedge pillow several months ago. Your "simple" gesture has just made a BIG difference.
A wheelchair, being used to make a memory.............Taking a trip to Waldameer - not a big deal, right? (For those of you not from the Erie area, Waldameer is a local amusement park.) It IS a big deal when you have trouble walking. Getting from the parking lot into the park can be a painful if not impossible experience. Recently, a friend of the ministry stopped in to borrow a wheelchair for a relative who wanted to spend the day at the park as part of a family gathering. Fortunately, we had one available to loan him. When he brought it back, he shared with us what a blessing it had been to be able to use it, as it enabled his family to spend the day together. Remember, the medical equipment you have that may be gathering dust in your home may be just what someone needs to make a memory that will last a lifetime!
