Abby G. was wondering if anyone has a Men’s coat, size M or so, to donate to someone in need. She teaches some Nepali refugees English and their father has a broken coat that won’t zip. Thanks!

This week is Moody’s ‘Urban Emphasis Week’ and Daniel Higashi’s senior Urban Ministry class will be giving neighborhood tours throughout the city. He and a couple classmates will be leading a tour of the Pilsen neighborhood in the UIC Area on Thursday (2/24) from 4:00 – 7:00 PM. The purpose of these tours is to introduce students to the wonderful cultural diversity of the city they live in. He also wanted to extend an invitation to Immanuel. It would be a great opportunity to learn a little more about Pilsen and contribute your thoughts concerning ministry here. Participants will grab dinner as a group and debrief at Nuevo Leon or Abuelos when they’re done.
