Psalm 90:17 was prayed over the new St. Cloud office site by this group of supporters: “May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us – yes, establish the work of our hands.”

We are so excited to announce the grand opening of our new Arrive Ministries St. Cloud office site!

This new site location is an answer to prayer for Samantha, Melissa, and all of us at Arrive Ministries. We have been looking and praying for a spot to meet for ministry activities like sewing, tutoring, and various classes, plus we were in desperate need of a storage space to house donations.

We are able to offer a greater depth of hospitality to those who walk through our doors.

God swiftly answered our prayers in January, and the keys for the site location were given to us just two weeks ago. Since then, we have been moving in sewing machines and supplies, setting up internet and classrooms, and working our hardest to create a welcoming space to gather with our refugee friends in St. Cloud.

Our sewing teachers are already dreaming about how they can begin meeting students during off-hours or stay late after class time, bringing lunch to share, something that was previously not possible. Debbie, a long-time SALT volunteer coordinator told me she is excited to have a SALT classroom site since SALT tutors currently mainly meet in individual homes.

A St. Cloud sewing class meets at our new office site for the first time

In the new St. Cloud site we’ll be able to host meetings, parties, and SALT tutoring classes, as well as expand our sewing and arts exchange program since space will no longer be limited. We are able to offer a greater depth of hospitality to those who walk through our doors. Will you join us in praying for this site, and ask God to continue to bless St. Cloud Arrive Ministries in new and fresh ways?

Though we had plans for a heated storage space within blocks, sadly, that has fallen through. This is an ongoing need in St. Cloud, will you join us in praying for and finding leads on an affordable (climate-controlled) storage space?
