DECEMBER 15, 2022 Meeting

Presenting member: Chuck Pottenger
For thirty years, The Power Company Kids Club has been a Christian
501(c)(3) organization committed to equipping the children of Pontiac and
Detroit to become leaders of the next generation. PCKC’s vision is to
bring the life-changing power of the gospel of Jesus Christ to children and
their families who will, in turn, reach future generations for Christ. Through
a mentoring program, 1200 kids are visited in their homes every week and
are part of a weekly Saturday program that nourishes the hearts and
stomachs of all those who are blessed to participate. Food disparity is a
problem PCKC works hard to help by feeding every child physically,
spiritually, and emotionally, and boasts a 100% high school graduation
rate of its program participants. This program is vital to the lives of the
children served by The Power Company Kids Club. Our donation will
provide over 4000 meals through two months of Saturday programs.

Amount donated: $9,750
*Total amount raised reflects 100% participation of 92 current members.

Also presented: We encourage members to pray for and support
all of the wonderful charities introduced at our meetings.

Nepal 2023
Presenting member: Eden McCullough
In February 2023, our member Eden, age 19, along with 10 others will be traveling
to Nepal with the “Our Daughters International” team. This mission trip will help
teach healthy relationships to victims of sex trafficking in Nepal. Each year
25-30,000 young girls are tricked, persuaded, forced, or sold as victims of human
trafficking at the border between Nepal and India. Donations made directly to
Kensington Church for this global partner’s trip will help defray travel costs.

Another Day Resource Center
Presenting member: Doug Roehm
For 15 years Cynthia & Gordon Lietz have driven their big white bus into Detroit to
meet the homeless in need of food, clothes, and if allowed, prayer. It might be
sandwiches, or gently used and donated clothes, they take what they have and
distribute it to those in need. They are always accepting gently used coats, winter
wear, sweatshirts, underwear, and socks, especially in XL sizes. They have no
paid staff and are a volunteer-manned, prayer-fueled, Holy Spirt-let ministry
committed to spreading hope, truth, and love by being the hands and feet of
Jesus. They are thanking God for Another Day and helping as they can.
Donations would be used to help fix and paint the white bus, and help the
homeless community with hand-to-hand, frontline help.
