June 2021 Pulse

June 1, 2021

“And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God” (Colossians 3:14-16).

Whatcom Jesus Taxi
God provides! This month, Jesus Taxi volunteers from six different congregations visited a battered woman who had been sleeping, along with her daughter, on the floor. We visited a disabled woman whose bed was broken. We visited a woman who was recently widowed. We visited a man whose recent debilitating health problems make it hard to take care of himself. We visited a homeless woman, delivering a Love INC partner donation to help her obtain notarized copies of her marriage license and school transcript records.

God provides even more! Beginning this month, the Jesus Taxi will be running three shifts monthly, including a minimum of 27 volunteers each month PLUS an orientation is being scheduled for one congregation’s middle schoolers and their families, PLUS we have a confirmed orientation date with another congregation’s students and leadership (25-30 people). We could see 30 to 40 volunteers monthly by the end of June. These numbers include, and are bolstered by, the support we have received from YWAM North Cascades, who are providing 5 vehicles and 10 volunteers twice each month.

The Jesus Taxi is a mobile blessing unit. And it’s fun! You can sign up for an orientation at http://whatcomloveinc.org/jesustaxi
