Below is an article written by Joy Bolton of Kentucky Woman’s Missionary Union. The original article can be viewed on her website here.

Folks in Shelby County are organizing a free one-day clinic to be held on Saturday, April 24.  The primary purpose of this ministry is to meet needs in Christ’s name. Organizers want to meet medical, spiritual, and physical needs of guests who receive services at the clinic.  Services to be offered include medical, dental, optical, haircuts, clothes closet and food pantry.

Judy Phillips, a member of Salem Baptist Church in Shelby Baptist Association, is leading this effort.  She participated in a Touched Twice clinic in Lynch last summer and determined to bring it to Shelbyville.  Touched Twice is a national ministry that organizes clinics.  Learn more about them at http://touchedtwiceunited.org.

Shelby Touched Twice now has a website through Salem Baptist church: http://www.shelbytouchedtwice.com.  Additional volunteers are needed for this effort. If you would like to help with the Shelby Touched Twice effort, please visit the website and register.  Volunteers are needed before the clinic as well as the day of the clinic.

Shelby Touched Twice is collecting non-perishable food, spring and summer clothes, toiletry items for gift bags and Bibles (English and Spanish translations).  STT hopes to send each guest home with a bag of food, toiletry gift bag, Bible and clothes if they wish to receive them.

Shelby Touched Twice is also receiving financial donations for the clinic through Salem Baptist Church.  Please visit the web site for more information.  Or contact STT at: contact@shelbytouchedtwice.com

A significant part of the Shelby Touched Twice story is that about 20 people from Salem participated in the Lynch Touched Twice clinic last year.  That might not seem remarkable, but when you consider that this congregation runs about 80 on Sundays, that number represents 25% of their people. The experience not only made an impact in Lynch, but it has had a profound effect on Salem Baptist Church. Now they are leading the way in organizing the ministry in Shelbyville.  Missions involvement always takes people to a new level spiritually and one touch brings another and another.  It is not just the guests that are touched twice.  So are the missions volunteers.

Want a second touch from the Lord?  Get involved in missions.  You’ll find that you are touched twice, too.
