Mission Update: West Kensington Ministry

December 31, 2020

Rev. Adan A. Mairena, Director

By God’s grace, ministry continues to happen at WKM–even during this time of Covid. Like in other places, their ministries might look a little different, but God is leading them forward into a new year.

Things to celebrate:

  • A virtual Book Study on The Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and a virtual Bible Study of the Minor Prophets in combination with members of Yeadon and Chestnut Hill churches.
  • Food distribution on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., averaging 10,000 pounds per week. Food comes from Small Things (formerly Easter Outreach), Port Kensington Community Farms, and churches and volunteers who donate casseroles and sandwiches.
  • Churches and schools have provided lots of blankets, coats and masks.
  • The Gage Recording Studio is fully operational (with masks and social distancing) and a song is being recorded. A podcast (La Calle Project) has also been created.
  • An Immigrant Relief Fund is in place and is being publicized.
