Michelle uses her crafting abilities to support these ministries.
God's Caring Bees
Michelle coordinates God's Caring Bees, providing encouragements, supplies and lessons where needed.
God's Caring Bees is a ministry of City Light Church of Victoria. It is crafters — quilters, knitters and crocheters — serving missions and the needs in our community and around the world.
This group has supplied knitted/crocheted dish cloths, prayer shawls and more for those in need.
This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. — 2 Corinthians 9:12 NIV
Open Arms Ministry
Besides being directly involved in Open Arms Ministry, Michelle (through God's Caring Bees) has provided hats created from old sweatshirts for distribution to the homeless this winter.
Open Arms Ministry is an outreach to the youth on the streets of Victoria. Launched in January 2014 this ministry has seen some incredible successes in growing relationships with youth. Saturday evening street events featuring barbequed hot dogs and other donated foods provides the opportunity to establish a real relationship with hurting people; an opportunity to pray for them.
Our job is not to end homelessness but to end hopelessness. How do you help end hopelessness? We help end peoples hopelessness by getting to know them without judgement and condemnation, by becoming their friend and showing them that we truly and honestly care about who they are. — Open Arms Ministry
Compassionate Resource Warehouse
Michelle also provides services and supplies to the Compassionate Resource Warehouse both personally (along with other members of her church) and through God's Caring Bees.
The Compassionate Resource Warehouse (CRW) is a registered Canadian charity based in Victoria, British Columbia. Since our launch in 1999, our volunteers have collected, processed, packaged and shipped a variety of donated goods and equipment to responsible charities and other groups around the world. These goods are distributed free of charge to people in need and provide opportunity and hope. — Compassionate Resource Warehouse
