I am happy that you are reading this message, and were blessed to make it through 2020, to see January 1, 2021. Last year was a trying year for us all, to say the least. Although we were all in the same storm, we were not all in the same boat. There were many who actually prospered in 2020, while others experienced financial ruin and death.
2 Corinthians 5:20 reads, "Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God." This scripture is the foundation that Ambassadors of Memphis was created. Believers in Christ, appealing to those that we come in contact with, to be reconciled to God. We make this appeal, NOT with words, but with our ACTIONS. Always looking for Peace, Truth and Justice in how we do business. Being open to use our Time, Resources and Influence to help those who are in need. Now, more than ever, our city needs an Ambassador of Memphis.
In 2021, AOM is committed to returning to our core mission. Supporting the members of Ambassadors of Memphis as they go out to make this appeal to the City of Memphis. Showing the love of Christ through our actions. First, we are reinstating the monthly meetings as a monthly prayer meeting via Zoom. The meetings will be the first Monday of the month at 7am CST, no longer than 30-40 minutes. You may email prayer requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Send email to email@example.com to request login link and meeting schedule.)
Second, we have adopted Feeding All Ministries. Led by Joy "Mother Wit" Scott, this ministry feeds and provide supplies to homeless individuals and families in Memphis, TN. AOM will continue to support their efforts by providing monetary resources and volunteers as needed. We encourage all members of AOM to support whenever possible. Your donations to AOM are tax deductible.
Finally, we are open to the ideas of our members. If you have a project that you would like AOM to support, please feel free to reach out to us. We will require that you spearhead your project and articulate exactly what kind of support you need from AOM. We look forward to serving with you all in 2021.
In His Service,
