Because of Him

Ephesians 3:20
Now to him who is able to do immeasurable more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us

It is because of God the Father our Savior Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit that lives in us that anything at all is accomplished, provided for and carried out in this Ministry.  Praise be to the one and only God, ” I am the Alpha and the Omega,”  says the Lord God, “who is and was and is to come, the Almighty.” (Rev. 1:8)

Isaiah 43
“You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord, ” and my servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe me and understand that I am He.  Before me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after me.

Serving Hands Ministries belongs to the Lord, we are honored to serve Him through this Ministry. Here is a recap of what was accomplished in 2018…

In 2018 Serving Hands Ministries has helped 28 people at no cost to them. Mostly widows, and it is so exciting to see how God has orchestrated all of the connections to Serving Hands Ministries.  Through SHM we were able to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with them,  when God has opened the door, pray with them and repair things in their homes that they had no recourses to do themselves.  We repaired and replaced roofs, fixed plumbing, installed a new furnace and repaired furnaces, built wheelchair ramps, replaced rotted flooring, installed an ADA toilet, trimmed trees and shrubs among many other things.

There were many seeds planted and one of the women we were able to help is now in a Bible study with a woman that had compassion and chose to disciple her.

Just last month we went out to visit a few people  We prayed that God put on our hearts who He wanted us to visit.  We went to see Nancy, a sweet older woman who’s husband is in the nursing home.  Serving Hands Ministries was contacted by Social Services asking if we could help with repairing their roof.  It is leaking severely and needs to be replaced. Both Nancy and her husband have had strokes.  She was at home and graciously invited us in. We were blessed to sit with her for a while and she shared about a time in her life when her husband and her started a Ministry, they would help people in their community that had needs they couldn’t meet themselves. She also shared about how God has worked in her life over the years. It was a sweet time listening to her share about her life.  We were blessed to kneel beside her and pray with her and hopefully encourage her.  She surely encouraged us, what a blessing.  No doubt that this was where we were supposed to go that day.

We will be doing their roof soon.  We were able to tarp over the roof to stop the leaking until the weather breaks.

See pictures below. Tarped roof shown in picture on the right.



Ephesians 3:20-21
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.  Amen.”



We had a call about a woman that was diagnosed with MS and her son who is on disability for serious health problems.  She was taking care of him and then she was diagnosed, he is now taking care of her. They needed a wheelchair ramp and Serving Hands Ministries was able to provide one for them just 2 weeks ago.  The Lord opened the door for Brett to pray with this man when he first met him.  And while Evan and Dave were there building the wheelchair ramp they were also honored to pray with him, but God has not opened the door to share about Jesus with them yet. We are praying for that opportunity.

We want to send out a special thank you to Granite Ridge Builders and Nuway Construction for donating laborers and to an anonymous donor for materials.




Hebrews 6:10
God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.
