Hello, OLUMC Family! I hope you are well!

We love SEEing your Lent at Home Photos! 🤓

This week, grab a pair of glasses (or cut the ones in your Lent box)! Use them to look at our world and find both the injustices and the blessings. Think about what we can do to correct an injustice or to be a blessing in our community.

We know Rev. Rachel will do amazing things with this organization. ❤️

Last Friday, 850 Shelter guests were provided dinner thanks to Shaza's hard work! An incredible example of love and serving. ❤️

Read her story at https://time.com/a-syrian-refugee-story/?fbclid=IwAR30UMDjl4VwIhZwPkXbD7IhgIcmBZuDORWHx1aMB16qObrUgguGz5ZBmFY.

This is Shaza Alshaara and her family. She’s a Syrian refugee who lives here in Dallas and loves to do volunteer work. She also cooked two nights of dinner (over 600 meals) for those who were sheltered at the Dallas convention center. An absolute inspiration.

Churches serve as warming centers, shelters | United Methodist News Service

"The Rev. Rachel Baughman said the emergency shelter coalition the church is part of decided this year, because of the pandemic, to raise funds to house people in a local hotel. But the hotel faced operational challenges because of the weather, and the number of people in need grew.

So the coalition worked with the city of Dallas to open the downtown Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center."

Read more about the efforts of Texas United Methodist Churches over the past few days at https://www.umnews.org/en/news/churches-serve-as-warming-centers-shelters.

umnews.org With nearly 3 million homes without electricity in subfreezing temperatures, United Methodists come together to provide shelter, food, charging stations and other help.

[02/15/21]   Emergency Shelter Update from Rev. Rachel

“We have now worked to transition everyone from the hotel over to the convention center due to a lack of power and heat at the hotel. We are coordinating meals three times a day for 600 people at the convention center and working to get volunteers to help administer rapid tests for everyone before entering into Shelter at the convention center.

Working to provide this many meals for this many people under these conditions is quite challenging, but it’s been incredibly encouraging to see so many working together to make this possible.
It’s great to see businesses in Dallas coming together to just make sure that everyone is fed and off the street.

Thanks be to God for this incredible unified effort from shelters, city officials, business owners, churches, and individuals. The love of God in action has hands and feet and faces and they are all an active and bold sign of hope in the midst of this crisis.” ❤️
