February 2023

At YAIPak Outreach everything starts with the Extravagant Love of Christ. God pursues each one of us to redefine our identity, restore our dignity, and remind us how deeply we are loved. With a focus on women, children and veterans, we are witnessing that power of Extravagant Love each day. Our warehouse for donation drop offs and volunteer hours is located at 1255 Paradise Hill Rd. We are open for donations and volunteers on Mondays from 9am to 12pm, Wednesdays from 12 to 2pm, and Thursdays from 5 to 8pm.


 

YAIPak Outreach in the Community


Just knowing someone is there can make such a difference. The presence of someone who cares can lift the heaviest of burdens…as if to say you don’t have to walk through this alone.


We may not be able to take all their problems away but we can genuinely care and give the time we have. With the growth and expansion of all that is going on, we are continuously humbled by the opportunities.


However, we will never forget where we have started. We exist to LOVE THE ONE. The one that is hurting and needs Hope. The one that is broken and needs healing. The one that is running and needs restoration. We exist to let them know THEY ARE IMPORTANT. Their place in our lives will never be overrun by busyness or newness. They will always be important.




YAIPAK TEXAS DIVISION We took our first load, and spent our first day with some extraordinary people. There was such an excitement in the air. Everyone started their day out, worshiping at Powerhouse Church with Pastor Robert and his church family. We proceeded to have lunch at Chris and Michelle‘s, an extraordinary couple who opened up their home and fed about 20 of us. Michelle had worked all day to provide a buffet that met everyone’s needs. At a time when it’s easier just to go out and grab a table for convenience., nothing can beat the atmosphere that was so perfect in their home with all of us focused on the mission at hand. We were able to talk, not only about our history and our own testimonies of where we come from and why we were at this point in the journey. This perfect setting allowed us an opportunity to be knitted together as a unified team.

When it was time, you could feel the excitement and anticipation to get to the new warehouse. As we approached, all we could do was smile, hold back the tears and dream of what was to come. The Clarksville team was in the new box truck that has recently been dubbed, big mama. Each vehicle given to us to continue our mission has always taken on names. This was “big mamas” first journey. And what a doozy. They carried down 17 pallets of brand new goods to meet the needs of thousands of families. Bombas socks were on hand... lots of hygiene, detergent, children’s toys, clothing, and shoes. YAIPAK Clarksville also gifted the Texas outreach team our Ford F-150 to haul trailer loads.

We received the grand tour of the entire facility from the gentleman who owned the property, and so generously donated the area. What an extraordinary family. They were very humble with a mission to touch lives. Just like our very own Millan Enterprises LLC. We were so excited about giving, not realizing that our journey home, we would be so filled with the utmost of joy. Including surprises we did not expect like getting "stuck" in Mississippi for several days! (Each day filled with its own God sized moments)

Our hearts are overflowing. Our minds were trying to comprehend the magnitude of what has transpired in that weekend. The Team here in Clarksville continued to meet the needs of very urgent situations. Together we ALL can do great things one precious life at a time. Continue to dream and build with us as we impact lives in the mist of their trauma. Bring Hope. Bring Change, Be someone’s hero. YOU ARE IMPORTANT PEOPLE ADMINISTERING KINDNESS = YAIPAK

Congratulations to The Joshua Movement on their new warehouse space. We were honored to help with some future renovations for their space by providing light fixtures for each room.


It’s because of YOUR generosity that we are able to share the resources coming in and we couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity to support a great organization!
