New Green

Progress

We had a very productive weekend finishing up multiple projects at BLC.
We installed a door and added siding to our new storage room next to our new bathrooms, removed the old​ swamp cooler out of the new utility room, added a new outdoor water faucet for the garden, built steps from the new utility room into the garage.
A big thank you to Jim and Hayden for their help. 
Sandra was able to get many more plants, planted in the garden.

NO SPAGHETTI ?

 

 

Are you missing our fantastic spaghetti fundraiser, with delicious spaghetti with meat sauce, mouthwatering breadsticks, crisp salad, and soft scrumptious peanut butter cookies? 
This year, instead of preparing meals that are here today and gone in 5 minutes, BLC is focusing on raising tomatoes, oregano, onions, and other yummy vegetables to feed families throughout the year!
BLC and our partners in ministry are starting a community garden and front-porch container gardens , in the inner city, for at-risk youth and their families. Here’s how it works:
1. Families will provide “sweat equity” to help plant and tend community gardens and maintain their own front-porch garden.
2. The sweat-equity will earn two products for families:
a. Families will grow produce for their table in a direct hour/pound purchase ration 
b. Youth will earn their way to attend camps and retreats at BLC
If all goes well, and the Lord blesses our efforts, we hope to have a Farmer’s Market where organic veggies will be available for you to purchase for your table. And perhaps a new way to enjoy our famous BLC spaghetti sauce! Not only do we plan to teach gardening skills, but plans are in the works to teach preserving and canning skills. This will help make good, nutritious food available to you and our inner city families all year long.
God has been leading and preparing us for this for 25 years. When we answered the call to this ministry, we knew we would be having camps and retreats for at-risk youth. We knew that to be truly effective, we would need to partner with ministries on the front lines in the inner city. For change to truly be effective, it must be a comprehensive safety net.
These partnerships developed when the Lord directed us to hold a spaghetti fundraiser for businesses throughout the Oklahoma City metro area. These partnerships developed when He opened doors to serve hot dogs in the inner city. These partnerships developed when He taught us how to garden so we could share our produce with needy families.
All of these areas of our ministry are coming together to feed the bodies and souls of the precious young people and their families that God has called us to serve. Our calling verses are Matthew 14:22-33 and Matthew 25:35. Please pray for us and for the youth and families who need our help.
If you would like to help us grow gardens and grow youth through a monetary donation, you can go to www.blcministries.com or mail to BLC at P.O. Box 805, Bethany, OK 73008.
In Christ,
Berry

Pastor Lawson brought his church Friday July 22nd for a whole church renewal retreat. Please continue to pray for Pastor Lawson, his church family and their youth. Pastor Lawson is a great brother in Christ and a true obedient servant of Christ. Don't know many Pasors that would close their church building doors on a Sunday to encourage the entire church to attend the renewal retreat.
