Continued ministry and growth in Metro Detroit!! A city that was known for its innovation and its manufacturing suffered one of the greatest devastations following the economic crash almost a decade ago. This city that once had thriving businesses and manufacturing plants, new buildings and growing churches was left abandoned by over 1,2M people! Left with 1/2 the population and few jobs to be found the city quickly became a barren place. This left houses, buildings and yes, even churches abandoned. Churches from every denomination were being abandoned and even the Catholic Church started moving out. In a move unprecedented in U.S. Catholic history, they closed 43 churches, representing almost a third of Detroit’s Catholic parishes. The crumbling, burnt-out buildings can be seen as you drive through the streets of Detroit. Landmarks that once provided hope are now simply gutted and empty buildings with no sign of life.
As you have heard me say many times, we are blessed to be a blessing. A significant life changing ministry is the work we are a part of in Uganda.
I visited Uganda with my family in April, and our hearts were touched by the overwhelming need and by the difference a few dollars can make. The specific ministry that DMI is supporting is a program called “STAY IN SCHOOL”. This ministry provides feminine hygiene products to the girls. Without these items, the girls are forced to stay home from school each month during their cycle. After two or three months of missing school during this time, they are so far behind that many drop out of school. When this happens, as has happened in the past, the girls now have no education or way of making a living. At this point their parents tell them they have no future so they need to find a man to take care of them, which leaves them prey to prostitution, human trafficking, abuse, and teen pregnancy-all because they did not have the feminine products they needed to "STAY IN SCHOOL".
We were so moved by the plight of these girls that we committed to be a significant source of funding for this program.
Many of you have prepared or are preparing for your children to go back to school. While you are shopping for back to school needs, please take a moment to help this very special group of girls in Uganda. Will you become a young girl’s miracle?

Vision Rescue is a non-profit, registered charity involved in feeding, providing non formal education, medical help, skill training and other kinds of help to addicted and abused street children.
Biju Thampy founded the ministry in 2004 after seeing the enormous need and feeling compelled to step in and make a difference even if it was only for one child.
Vision Rescue now run four buses in Mumbai where children are given food and a non-formal education with the aim of graduating into vocational training, as well a medical van and a mobile dental unit.
Their work has expanded out beyond helping the street children to include working with Mumbai’s prostitutes, drug addicts and other vulnerable groups in the city. Another project from Vision Rescue is the Dream Centre, a shelter and transition home for trafficked girls.
Our goal at DMI is to purchase one bus, which is $25,000 and then support that bus each year. If you'd like to join us in supporting this cause, click the make a difference button below.
