Mercy in the Margins (June – 2022)

Greetings friends,

Spring has come and gone, and now we head into the summer season. We praise the Lord for some wonderful events and ministry expansion for the Idaho Falls Rescue Mission. God is good.

Here are some of the highlights from the past two months:

  • April 2: Prayed at the IFRM Walk in the Cold event (319 people registered)
  • April 6: EIPC luncheon (20 ministers) – special guest, John B.
  • April 7: Steering Committee Mtg.; evening youth workers meeting
  • April 12: Pastors prayer meeting (7 pastors)
  • April 14: IFRM staff breakfast – Pastor Kenny (16 staff)
  • April 15: Preached in Good Friday service
  • April 20: Began Bible Public Reading Project at Courthouse
  • April 29: EIPC Dinner Fellowship (30 people)
  • May 4: EIPC luncheon at IFRM (13 ministers)
  • May 5: National Day of Prayer: prayed in the gatherings at New Destiny Ministries Hub, Courthouse, and Fuente; finished the entire reading of the Bible at the Courthouse
  • May 10: Pastors prayer meeting (5 pastors)
  • May 23: Officiated in a funeral and graveside

Would you like to contribute financially on a monthly basis to my missionary work?  Here are a couple of ways: (1) Send the contribution to Providence Downtown Church and specifically mark it as “missionary fund for Todd Wood”, or (2) You are welcome to give directly to me.  Thank you so much!

Prayer requests:

  • Pray for the men enrolled in the Navigate Discipleship Program at the Idaho Falls Rescue Mission. We have three men in the program – Ruben, Josh, and Jay.

My four current ministry objectives:

  • Be a servant missionary-pastor with Providence Downtown Church which specifically ministers to the incarcerated, the addicted, the homeless, and the impoverished.  It is a church ministering and bringing mercy to those in the margins.
  • Bring Bible messages and pastoral encouragement to the Shepherd of the Falls Lutheran Church family in American Falls and to the Seasoned By Grace Fellowship in Pocatello.
  • Minister as a pastor with the Idaho Falls Rescue Mission.
  • Be a blessing to the pastors in Idaho Falls and throughout the region through the Eastern Idaho Pastors Coalition (EIPC).

May Jesus reign as King!

Todd Wood (downtown missionary)
