The excitement of the Christmas season is behind us and we are now starting a New Year and decade. As I reflect on the past 8 years of me being the Family Ministries Manager, I stand in awe as to how the Lord has moved in the lives of so many students in the Adopt-a-Student Program.
Through this invaluable ministry, the family of God has grown by numerous souls. Entire families that were once lost, are now found to be part of the body of Christ. I receive phone calls from parents that have been reading their Bibles and want to know the meaning of scriptures verses. I believe the Lord allows me to see glimpses of the fruit being manifested in these new Believers so that I may not get discouraged while in the trenches, fighting the good fight.
The joy of the Lord is my strength, and to Him be all the Glory!!
Happy New Year! What a great way to start off a new year. On January 1, 2020 we had 325 guests join us for a special New Years Day Turkey Dinner. Guests enjoyed a coffee, a wonderful chapel service, a hot meal and a gift. The best part of this event was that 58 guest asked for specific prayer and 11 people made a decision to follow Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
This event would not have been possible without the support of you the community. Some gave a donation of cash, others donated turkeys and other food items, over 50 individuals donated their time to help on this day and many of you were praying for the event. We are thankful for all who gave during the Christmas Season, we are excited to see what God will do in 2020 through you and through Union Gospel Mission.
Thank you for everyone who supported Gods work in 2019!
Michael came into the Men’s Recovery Program at UGM last October. This was his third time in the program within the last three years. Michael has been more focused on the program this time around. Especially and most importantly, on developing his relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit seems to be working on Michael as never before. Repentance and forgiveness have been put on Michael’s heart, along with a strong desire to study the Bible.
All of this is a sign that the Holy Spirit is working in Michael’s life. The Word of God is the main way that He reveals Himself to us. It is just like the Holy Spirit to put it on someone’s heart and mind to spend more time in God’s Word.

I am an alcoholic, I had gone 3 years without a drink. Then I faltered and I had to come back to UGM. I am a sinner just like everyone else.
Prov 16:7-9: 'When a man’s ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him. Better is a little with righteousness, Than vast revenues without justice. A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.
if I have faith like a mustered seed, I know God can help me through this journey. I want to thank everyone at the Mission for being like a family to me.
