Mission News:
as I meet with the Mission Sta-
tion Directors and Volunteers
who are answering their call
to Missions. Realizing that
we were all designed for
Missions, it is my prayer that
this Made for Missions
newsletter will cause you to
hear the cries of those who
live with intimidation, insults,
abuse and the feeling of
helplessness. Will you notice
the people placed on your
path today? Do you see
them, do you hear their cries
and are you responding to
their needs? Enjoy reading
how others are answering
the call to work in the har-
vest field and we invite you
to join in.

Then he said to his disciples,
"The harvest is plentiful but
the workers are few. Ask the
Lord of the harvest, there-
fore, to send out workers into
his harvest field." (Matthew
9:3638 NIV)

Read Hebrews 4:14-16
When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears,
and rescues them from all their troubles. The LORD is
near to the brokenhearted, and saves the crushed in
spirit.
- Psalm 34: 17-18 (NRSV)

I have been single for many years. Since my children
left the nest, I have experienced bouts of loneliness and
depression. Simple tasks like grocery shopping for a
family on one can overwhelm me with despair.
One Saturday afternoon at the grocery store, I sorted
through the banana bin and found just the right bunch.
As I pulled off one banana that I didn't want and put it
back in the pile, I felt a deep, unexpected sadness. I
know what it's like to feel isolated, left out, and discon-
nected.
That day as I retrieved the single banana, I remem-
bered how God retrieves us. God understands our deep-
est needs; and in our loneliest times, God draws us close
in fellowship and love. We can rest
assured that we are God's precious
children, held gently in God's care.

Prayer: Thank you, God of comfort, for your constant
presence in our lives. Fill us with your love, your hope,
and your promise.
Amen.

Thought for the Day:

Though we may feel left out, God retrieves us and
draws us close.

Prayer Focus:
THOSE WHO FEEL LEFT OUT OF THE BUNCH

A SINGLE BANANA
We had a special visitor at the Women's Well in September.
She is a precious woman of God who loves the color purple.
n fact, all her many friends all call her "Grandma Purple.
Grandma Purple always wears something purple (hats, shoes,
dresses, jewelry).
On September 6, we honored Grandma Purple (i.e. Marga-
ret Hammond) for all she does for others by wearing purple. In
her hometown of Thomasville, NC, Grandma Purple ministers
to patients in hospitals by her visits and
prayers for their healing. Just being
around her will make you smile and feel
better.
This year's Aiken Charity Bazaar was
another success. We met so many peo-
ple in those two days. Our banner dis-
played "Wagener Women's Well, a
Christ Central Ministry on it. Most peo-
ple were not familiar with the Women's
Well but were familiar with Christ Cen-
tral. Comments were positive in ex-
pressing appreciation for the Christ
Central ministries of Aiken. I hope that
those who visited our booth will now
have a better idea of the ministry in
Wagener.
Tuesday, October 4, we will start a
new Bible study at 10:30. These studies have brought women
together who would not otherwise be together. Our discussions
are scripture centered and our fellowships filled with fun and
good food. We welcome and invite all women from all denomi-
nations to join us.
More events are on the calendar for October. The trip to
Hendersonville, NC for apple picking will take place the middle
of October (13 or 20). We also will be exhibiting our handiwork
in Columbia on October 19 at the
SC Christian Chamber of Com-
merce. We plan to include break-
fast at Brookland Baptist Church
on #378 that morning.
Until next month, Be Blessed.

As I stood at the bus stop waiting for our new crop of kids this school year, the neighbor-
hood moms were lined up and down the sidewalk as well. They were lining up
to place their children on a waiting list for our program-most of them begging

Why I Want My GED

It has come to my attention, that many job opportunities are unavailable to me for
the simple fact I do not have a high school diploma. I plan to acquire my GED and attend a technical
school before college. Nothing would make me happier than to be successful in the field of medical
sciences; however, only medical training facility requires a high school diploma or equivalent. After
dropping out of high school to work full time, I soon realized it to be the worst decision I've ever made.

Although a high school diploma would have been the smarter easier choice, I am glad the GED pro-
gram exists to aide people like myself in achieving a better life. A GED is the first stepping stone on my
path to a happy comfortable life. Without it, I am doomed to minimum wage work for the rest of my life.
I have always aspired for greatness, but being under educated has severely stunted my financial
growth.

There are many people that have helped me since I've been on my own. My most important goal for
earning my GED is to return favor to these whom have aided me in my time of need. That is why I
want my GED................this was submitted by a GED candidate.

Here is a report on my brother who is in a rehabilitation facility in Columbia with Christ
Central ministries (Bethel House). Addica is doing great. He left fort mill with nothing and
have gained everything which is wisdom from God. He was home for the weekend and we
had a family cookout he put together. It was really good to see him and I know he felt
good to see most of his family in the surrounding area and not have to do drugs to main-
tain. Since he has been in the rehabilitation house they were able to show him how to get
his veteran benefits going so he could have veterans' healthcare. Ny brother was once in
the Air Force and his job was a chief airman mechanic but because of his addiction he was
discharged. He worked for Bowater, Duke Power and Freightliner and so many more great
companies as a certified welder, but because
of this addiction he lost these positions. He
just got another chance at employment with
the VA hospital. This is a temporary position
and he is praying they will hire him permanent
so keep him in your prayers. Just would like to
say thank you for your support and God
Bless...submitted by a family member.

CCM - Concessions of Hope

RefIections from a famiIy member.

A group of us met this past Thursday. Next weekend will mark a year since I
walked onto the Hope Plaza property. In the last year, I have met so many people and
learned many lessons. Larry and I met today. We sat in the plaza for over an hour. This
week, it was evident we need to firm up the foundation of our coffee shop. I told Larry we are
being pruned. Over the last year, the need continues to minister to the homeless. Every day,
people come to the plaza, seeking friendship, and a cup of coffee. They leave with both.

God is teaching me to stay on the path that he as laid our
for me through His Word. I'm learning not to lose myself
and get caught up in the everyday battles of this world. I'm
focusing on keeping my eyes fixed on Christ and not let-
ting small insignificant things distract me. I have also
learned not to put limits on what God can do. think, hope,
and dream for big things.
Jesus is a friend to those who don't have friends. We
can count on Him through thick and thin and I love that I
can do that. I know sometimes it seems as if I am standing
all alone but I will get through it because His grace, love
and mercy won't let me fall. God is there to help us carry on
