Review & Vision

2017 Letter.

2016… Dare I say that it was another amazing year in the Lord? I know that I sound like a broken record and at the same time, it's beyond my comprehension that ministry gets more amazing every year!

The "numbers" that we served are similar to years past. We served 11,031 people groceries, 2,155 hot meals, 240,683 pounds of food were distributed and literally tons of clothing, Bibles, hygiene items and pet food. Most importantly we engaged in countless prayers, encouragement and conversations with anyone who asked or accepted the offer! The prayer tent, I believe has become a symbol of the place people can go to talk and find some refuge and comfort.

Our name, “Dimensions", represents the 3-D personhood of human beings. We (people) are body, mind and spirit. The name “Dimensions” also represents depth. The Lord has brought depth to the ministry in people's lives. The numbers may seem the same as last year, but not the depth of what we do. As I look at the whole picture, myself included, the Lord has brought His concept of Love, true Love, to a whole new level. I have people asking to remind others that God loves them! Our volunteer base is strong and I see people growing! I see struggle and freedom from bondage happening! I am privileged to see people downtown and at the food pantry accepting the Lord in salvation and re-dedication to Him! Glory to God!

The streets are just not a life-giving force! What I have discovered is that we are all so extremely unique, and individual, that God truly does have an individualized plan and purpose for each of us. So would you join us in prayer, service and giving, that we would be a catalyst in helping people discover God, Who He is, who we are in Him and the life in abundance He promises for those who belong to Him! John 10:10. He truly wants to set the captives free!

Thank you for supporting us, thank you for letting me continue to minister! In his service, Fran Richardson

I am looking forward to new growth in 2016. Several areas we will be focusing on are deliverance ministry as well as recovery ministry in downtown Reno. I am looking forward to exploring new ideas for volunteerism, grant writing and leadership. My dream is to one day partner with local ranchers, farmers and various companies to provide more healthy alternatives for folks. One prayer has already been answered! We are privileged to further our partnership with Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada Resource Network in "Hoop Houses” that provide year-round fresh produce!

Thank you all for helping Dimensions to be an awesome ministry of compassion to our neighbors in this community!
