Operation Bethlehem

Should Zion gift people in our city, currently sleeping on the floor, with bed? We've done this for the past three years near Christmas. We do it to honor Jesus, who had no place to lay His head.

We're having financial troubles. Should we plan on ordering the beds this year? The cost of the bed set up is around $110, which includes a single mattress, box spring and frame. In the past, we done 60 beds. If you're interested in donating to this project, talk with Pastor John.

This assessment has a ten year history an it was originally designed by our own global ministry equipper, Rev. Dr. Brad Miller! the entire assessment has been recently updated and Zion is among the first to "test-drive" the newest version. Uniquely to accommodate Zion, we will have paper forms available at the Mizo and Swahili services.

Farewell, my friends!

Dear friends,

I would like to thank each one of you for giving me the opportunity to serve at Zion. This month I'll be my position as the "office lady" here at Zion, and my last day is the 16th. I'll be coming to help with some tasks but I won't be in the office during weekdays.

A few months ago, my husband decided to start a business and while we still have a month or so for the opening day, the project demands more hands and it is for this reason that I'm leaving. while I'm excited about the new project, there is also a big part of me that's sad to say goodbye. I can't  say enough how much I've enjoyed working at Zion, where every day is different and where Jesus shows up constantly.

I would like to thank Pastor John and all the staff. I learned so much from your experience, advice, and guidance. My time spent here has been such a valuable part of my spiritual growth. I'll carry the things I learned forever

It has been amazing working at Zion!

God Bless,

Ximena
