Luke 12: 6-7

 Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God.  Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Serving the residents of McDowell County, West Virginia, Little Sparrow Ministries is tasked with helping to feed and clothe the “poorest of the poor.”  Additionally, Little Sparrow works to provide spiritual guidance to their served population.  Little Sparrow relies entirely on donations of food, clothing, household items, and financial donations to complete its work.  The all-volunteer Board of Directors continuously seeks to develop programs that show their customers the Lord’s love for them.

Little Sparrow Ministries also relies on mission teams from various churches and service organizations, to accomplish their mission.  Little Sparrow is currently able to house teams of up to 30 volunteers, with plans to expend, in the future.  Whether it is work in the Little Sparrow Mission Center, or work in the field, there is always something to be done, for those who are so inclined.

How to help

Like any ministry, Little Sparrow relies on the generosity of others to survive.  Without the donations of food, clothing, money, and time, Little Sparrow would not be able to do the Lord’s work in McDowell County.  While the members of the board are volunteers, it doesn’t mean they are without expense.  Please consider helping in any way possible.  Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, and God bless!
