Ever get tired of hearing the phone ring?

At the other end, there may be turmoil or a good report!   This week we had an update that a swimmer (client) moved back to the area and found work here.  We are excited to reconnect and celebrate.  Today, we've been searching for housing to prevent another family from being homeless.  Each ring is important to us.

Case workers report they love to bring their clients to us because we are different.  We are thankful God is using us to bless others and that we have the opportunity to share Good News with our guests!

We can now accept your "equipment" donations.  Working items such as lawnmowers, power tools, newer exercise equipment, generators, power washers, business equipment etc.  A new store in Eden Prairie called ReQuip will be selling them and proceeds from these items will benefit Reach & Restore.  These are items that we can not give to our clients but will help with funding our ministry.  Please call us with questions  952-933-1393952-933-1393 .

Currently, we are in need of pots/pans, beds, cribs, infant car seat (6 yrs old or newer), small microwaves, toasters, can openers, towels, men's jeans, boy pants, women's socks and underwear, children's tennis shoes and zip lock bags.  We will always accept deodorant, razors, travel toiletries, t.p. toothpaste, toothbrushes and dental floss, Bibles and Christian Books.

Thank you for contributing towards New Life.  Recently, we have been able to get quite a few people up off the floor with mattresses that were donated. Some of them have health problems and sleep will be a major gift!

One of my favorite gifts is when we get a call or note from someone who has been impacted by Reach & Restore. Christ is Alive and works through us to demonstrate unconditional love as we meet basic needs together.

It's time to celebrate rebirth!  He Is Risen!  Happy Easter!

Today, two of our clients expressed their feelings of depression and weariness.  By the time they left Reach & Restore there were smiles and deep appreciation after spending time listening and praying for them.

Love is the word of the week as Valentines Day approaches.

God IS Love.

Please take time to love by sacrificing your time for the sake of another.

It was a fun weekend to celebrate with St. David's Church this week as they had a baby shower for Reach & Restore. Thank you to those who contributed to the future children and parents who will be needing the gifts this year!  We will be able to make the new arrivals much easier for many families who are needing support.

Another fun way you can support Reach & Restore is by saving your cans for recycling and putting them into our collection trailer located at 4420 Ridgewood Road in Minnetonka.  This is a great group activity or service project any time of year!

We are in need of adult winter boots, adult gloves, boy and mens clothing, plus sized clothing and walking shoes.  There has also been a request for a refrigerator and a washing machine. Please call us if you know of one that is available.

Today, another gentleman is sleeping off the floor in a bed tonight, because of your support of the ministry. THANK YOU!
