So happy to see that you have wandered over to our blog section! You may have found your way here because you were wondering---“How can buying a phone change a life”? I'll explain! A portion of EVERY phone sold will be donated to Upward Ministries. And because Upward Mobile is a small family owned company in Cincinnati, Ohio we think that is pretty cool. Bryan began Upward Mobile two years ago out of his basement. And I, his wife Erin, worked as a social worker for a local non-profit. It has always been our dream to have our own ministry and now that dream is finally coming true. And let me tell you, it has been a LONG time coming!
Exactly one year ago, we came up with the mission statement for this ministry, 5 years before that we started our journey to become foster parents and 15 years before that (wow I feel old) my heart stirred for the first time for the foster care system and the families involved. All those events bring me to the point of this blog---the launch of Upward Ministries. Over the upcoming weeks, I am going to be giving more and more details about Upward Ministries but today I just wanted to lay the foundation for you. Upward Ministries will be purchasing a house that will be used to help low income families become self sufficient by showing them the love and mercy of the Lord while assisting with their short term needs. We will be targeting families who are involved with the child welfare system with the ultimate goal of helping families stay together.
There are so many exciting pieces that I can’t wait to share with you over the upcoming weeks. But it is late (and I have a crying toddler on my lap) so I will be closing with our mission statement. I hope you check back frequently to see what’s new with Upward Ministries.
