About Messiah's Branch Mission Church and how you can help their efforts to help poor
Messiah's Branch has been working with the poor in Wichita since June of 2000, before that they helped another ministry with the poor in Wichita though most of 1999.

Phone # for Pastor Dan Catlin is 316-619-4886
We can always use medical supplies (over-the-counter pain meds, cold meds, bandages, etc) backpacks, soap, tooth brushes, toothpaste, hygiene items, sleeping bags, coats, good clothing, socks, hygiene products, food donations. In fact the homeless need what you need to live. If you have something you want to donate and you are not sure if we can use it just call or email.
We can also use your old computers, screens, laptops, or most any electronic devices yes including cell phones.
We are looking to open a New Shelter for women and children because there just are not enough beds to go around in the City of Wichita, we are in constant need of beds for all, but women and children are the highest priority. If you would like to talk about this please feel free to call Pastor Dan Catlin at 316-619-4886. We are praying someone will see the need and donate a large house for a start or a building, of course the money to purchase one would also work.
We have no specific guideline on who receives help and who does not, any who walk in the door can eat, use the phone, have access to the clothing closet, or anything that we have available on any given day. We help with many others things depending on each person their need and if we have a way to fill their need. Many times prayers are all we have to offer, but so many times those prayers are answered immediately, these are Miracle prayers that happen on a regular basis. Many people come for prayers from all over the city of Wichita.
We have helped thousands upon thousands since we have started.

Always in need of KJV large print Bibles (we do not discriminate because of one's beliefs, race, or and other difference, we are all of the same blood) we do not share our beliefs on anyone who does not ask. We share the love of Messiah with all though actions, people see that we are different then they ask why. We do not treat people as clients but as family; this love factor sets us apart from all the agencies.
Messiah's Branch Mission Church is a non denominational Family Christian Church. We are missionaries to homeless and poor of Wichita, KS. We believe in the whole Bible not just part of it.
KJV James Chapter 2
14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,
16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.
25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?
26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
