March 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



Some memories live forever, whether as a scar or a stain — they can’t be wiped away.We continue to receive calls on women struggling. The burden of homelessness can erode even the strongest minds.

This elderly woman enjoys reliving the past. We’ve met her before. Today, she’s wearing a motorcycle helmet. We listen while she waits to catch the bus. She knows the exact minute it’s supposed to arrive. Her eyes light up as she starts telling us her story.

Sometimes we hear things she wished for and not necessarily what was. Who can blame her for wanting to change her story when she was younger and happy in the prime of her life? She’s doing her best to keep it together, but that isn’t always possible. Thoughts of people who wronged her take up all her energy tearing away at her self control. She crumbles and needs time to pick up the pieces of her wounded heart. She’s easily misunderstood.

We share her joy over happier days when life was simpler, in a place that holds her best memories. We applaud her accomplishments and admire her triumphs. Her memories are sustaining her for a time. We know how important it is for her to share them.




It was a full and busy Saturday the last weekend of February. Our team was joined by the Next Generation Department of LifePoint Church. We watched as a flood of red shirts took over downtown Clarksville, the location of our previous home on 2nd and 3rd Street, where you can now find the Press.

Millan Enterprises in all their generosity provided these spaces for years before our move over to Paradise Hill Rd, which is now our forever home!

The project of the day...to clear out these two spaces and finally bring all of our items under one roof. We are so incredibly grateful for the hard work of these students and young adults. They had a major undertaking when committing to this project, but as we looked around throughout the day we saw laughter, joy, inside jokes forming and bonds that are only made while serving together. It is our greatest joy and honor to be officially HOME IN PARADISE!

Thank you LifePoint Church, the Gathering YA, and LPC students for all you have accomplished. We are so grateful to be home.


 

Your Generosity at Work



YAIPak Outreach - Texas Division is thriving! Since their launch and delivery of first supplies in late January their impact has been incredible! Whether touching local organizations in Katy, TX or their recent reach to Mobile, AL, they have stayed true to the mission. Finding those in need and letting them know how truly important they are. Here are some of the things they have experienced and been able to do in a very short amount of time...They are ready and zealous to do so much more!!


"YAIPak Texas in partnership with PowerHouse Church Katy and The Attic ministries had an awesome outreach tonight at Green Meadows Apartments. We were able to bless these kids with toys and the Gospel!"


"PowerHouse Church Katy and YAIPak Texas we’re meeting the needs of Tender Mercy Ministries. They have a transition and sober living house for men and women. YAIPak Outreach was able to supply clothing and hygiene products to help further their ministry!"


Thank you YAIPak Texas for truly grasping on what it means to "Reach the World, by Impacting Communities". We can't wait to see what's next!
