End of Year Letter from the Executive Director
Equip. Transform. Connect.
I want to personally thank you for your faithful support of this vital ministry to our city. Our city has many individuals who, without proper exposure to the good news of the Gospel, will continue to spiral downward. At Mission: Possible! Austin (MP Austin) our mission is to Connect, Equip the Body of Christ, and empower individuals in life Transformation. Individuals and volunteers through MP Austin activities have the opportunity to be recipients of the transformation that only God brings… the gift of reconciliation. After 25 years of ministry through annual camps and on-going children’s programs, outreach to the elderly with nourishing meals, loving our neighbors that live on the street, community Bible studies, and Church Under the Bridge we are blessed to see God’s transformative power in lives and in the central East Austin neighborhood.
There are many opportunities for Christ’s Body to connect and be involved in someone’s life. Our vision for central East Austin is a growing collaborative community, bringing the hope of Christ with humility, justice and mercy resulting in Personal, Community and Generational Transformation.
Our strategy is to maximize resources for the growth of a collaborative East Austin community that brings the hope of Christ to all. Blessed with a centrally located facility we have established cost effective partnering for a variety of ministries. This ministry “Collective” provides:
counseling and Bible studies for juvenile law offenders both in and out of correctional facilities• music development to the children of inmates while a parent is incarcerated
free pregnancy testing with parenting classes and limited ultrasounds
a creative work environment for start-up non-profits in a shared community work-space
daily evening counseling sessions for all types of substance abuse
a program providing free cell phones to anyone with valid identification and that receives federal assistance.
MP Austin is an independent non-profit 501c3 organization that partners with believers and nonprofits, connecting and equipping through the MP Austin community and programs, with our neighbors resulting in Personal, Community and Generational Transformation.
When you pray for us think of our name: Mission: Possible! Austin – not impossible. God has called us to this section of our City (78702), placed us strategically in central East Austin (12th & Chicon), and uniquely gifted us to reach three distinct communities: high-risk children (orphans), widows and the least and last who live on our city streets. Please pray that our monthly financial commitments will continue to grow and that folks will commit to this ministry with their talents and treasure. We need $100,000.00 to meet our projected 2016 faith budget.
Thanks again for your faithful prayers and contributions to this vital ministry as we serve the least and last of our city.
Your brother and fellow servant in Christ,
Tim Pinson, Sr.
