Missio Dei Community Weekly Announcements:
Ambatana Threads Open House Boutique
- Ambatana Threads, a local handmade clothing business designed to employ and utilize the skills and ideas of refugee women, will be hosting an Open House Boutique at our community space (170 E. 1st Ave) this Sunday, December 4th from 2-5 PM!
- Coffee, by La Barba, and treats will be provided, as well as an opportunity to purchase wallets, clutches, aprons, kids clothes and much more. All make great Christmas gifts! (Cash or check only please)
- At 3 PM, we’ll have a chance to hear a bit more about the business and how it all began from it’s owner, Stefanie. Please feel free to invite your friends!
Wednesday, December 21st, there will be a candlelight vigil at 6 PM in Pioneer Park in honor of all the people who have lived and died on the streets this year. The vigil will occur a few yards away from where a gentleman died at Pioneer Park a few weeks ago. Afterwards, Joel Hunt and Cat Ryono will answer any questions and talk about their hearts for the marginalized in our community. Joel works as a Physicians Assistant for the Fourth Street Clinic and Cat is a case manager at the Homeless Youth Resource Center. It’ll be a great opportunity to mourn with our city and encounter those who may be different from us, but nevertheless are made in the image of God.
