In this MIT, men, women, youth groups, and families at Grace Evan will be participating in projects that will mainly benefit two areas of Memphis Union Mission's ministry.  We will focus on the men at The Calvary Colony and the women & children of The Moriah House.  These two facilities are long term rehab programs for men and women in crisis.  We will minister by participating in group projects, as well as individual activities.

To begin our MIT, we will focus on these two programs.  We may expand in the future to other programs.  Opportunities may include parties/fun activities at the facility or off campus, Holiday events, Bible studies, child care, emergency relief, dinners with guest speakers, transportation, etc., all with the desire to interact with the clients and show the love of Christ to them.  "I tell you the truth, when you did it to the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!"  Matt. 25: 40
