O Most Holy Trinity!!! All Glory, Praise, Honor & Thanks Be To You!!! 1,141 Turkey Baskets!!!


 Everlasting memories of Thanksgiving 2017 will abound for everyone who participated. Most challenging: definitely.  Heroic effort: one week in duration. Sent out an SOS – and you responded generously! Hallelujah!

Thank you, your volunteers, and donors.  We had 15 moms show up and the others were delivered Tuesday. Many hugs and much love, was shared.  I even got to hold a couple of babies that would not be here if the abortion mill had their way. The mom was told she had multiples and there was something wrong with them and that she should abort RIGHT NOW! She only wanted to have an ultrasound to confirm her pregnancy.  She came to us and we showed her two babies in her womb. We were not sure what we would see after that abortionist telling her their anomalies. They are perfect identical twin baby girls who are 4 months old now. The mom is a nursing student and will march at the end of the year. Oh and she did file papers of complaint against that clinic. One mom and one baby (or two) at a time. The turkeys were a great size and the moms were so grateful. My heart is full! God bless you and your heart for service!!

I want to thank all of you from all of us at the Flint Crisis Pregnancy Center for the Thanksgiving dinners! Our 30 clients were so excited and grateful. We so appreciate Daily Apostle thinking of us as part of your work. Praise the Lord!


Friends in Christ,

 Dear Brent, Rose and all your Volunteers,

        Blessings on your every effort and an abundance of grace to each of you who are doing the Lord's works of mercy!!!  This is my daily prayer for you in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament.

         Would you, please, pray for those who are being called to join us in our way of life for His glory and the salvation of souls? Together we are advancing His Kingdom in this life and in the life to come - in glory!

Thanksgiving 2017 -- By the Numbers  
-- 661 Baskets Metro Detroit 
480 Baskets Greater Lansing
Over 8,600 Children of God Fed
-  9 Tons of delicious Turkey delivered over 1,000 miles to recipient families
--  3000lbs of Potatoes
-  Over 6,000 Cookies, Breads, Pies, Empanadas Baked

Special Thanks to: Amira Kassab, Jonna’s To Go, Martin & the Elite Eight, Value Fresh Market Place, D&B Grocers, Heartland Marketplace, Walmart, Meijer, St. Fabian Council 13362, Orchard Lake St. Mary, and Church of the Resurrection. The Food Drives by: Resurrection Confirmation Students/8th Grade Class and St. Joseph Pewamo Sophomore Class yielded a fine harvest. Each person and group that selflessly baked, volunteered, donated, picked up and delivered Turkey Baskets. Well done!

Highlights: A young mom burst into nonstop tears of joy upon receiving her Basket saying, I prayed to God and here you are!  

As we were putting the finishing touches on Thanksgiving 2017 a dad and his three children (a refugee family) were walking briskly on Mount Hope in Lansing. I got out of the van and said, Turkey? He didn’t speak English. So I opened up the back door and showed him a large Turkey. He nodded yes. I got a box of food, set it in the oldest daughter’s arms. Tears streaming down her face, she was very happy; and they in single file strode off, not able to contain their joy.                                   

Many shared on how at both locations that we assembled and distributed Baskets -- everyone worked diligently; directions only needed to be given once, and the cohesiveness was something to behold.

Sr. Michael Paul delivered 25 Baskets Detroit to Romulus in a day. She was thrilled to see the Baskets overflowing with a variety of food and spiritual nourishment of Our Daily Bread booklets, prayer cards, and religious messages giving hope for our time. Sister’s hope for the future is to be able to give out 50 Turkey Baskets for Thanksgiving 2018; our 20th Drive!

The LORD has surrounded us in glory: one more incredible time!  

A Blessed Advent Season, Merry Christmas, and a Fruitful New Year to you and your family!   

Brent and Rose Heyer



When I saw you hungry in the poor, Lord, I fed you and gave you drink.

Thanksgiving 2017 will be Daily Apostle's most abundant harvest. The Feeding of over 8,000 People! Proverbs Chapter 3 Verse 27 reads like a Mission Statement. "Refuse no one the good on which he has a claim when it is in your power to do it for him." “Here I am Jesus; I come to do Your Will. Only in Heaven will we see how much we owe to the poor for helping us to love God better because of them. St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta But another famous statement by Elisha, who was mentored by the Prophet Elijah, when he asked him what he wanted, Elisha said, “A double portion” which he received of Elijah’s spirit when he rode into Heaven in a fiery chariot. This Thanksgiving 2017, we want to give a double portion to all the families who receive our Turkeys.

Though we have pressed toward that mark of fulfilling that double portion; in two years time we have doubled what we began, going from 567 to 1,130 Baskets now serving Twelve MI Counties. Let us strive for this double portion for everyone we bless in our Annual Food Drive. Let the hopes of all those who receive our Baskets soar at the promise of a complete gourmet meal.   

"M-E-R-C-Y Mighty Eternal Redeeming Compassionate Yahweh" -Fr. George Kosicki, CSB Jesus is Divine Mercy in Person. He works in and through us to draw the downtrodden close, to know and love Him, and experience His Truth and goodness with joy.

 During the past eighteen years Daily Apostle has supplied thousands of Turkey Baskets & Spiritual Nourishment: to families served by CCSEM; Baldwin Clothing Closet; St. Damien of Molokai; STVCC Refugee Services; Pregnancy Services, CRCC, Guadalupe Workers, Shared Pregnancy, Image of God, Project Hope, Birth Choice, MAUBC. Our Goal is 805 Baskets to heroic mothers and grandmothers, who chose life in albeit difficult circumstances, and continuously say 'YES' to God, laying down their lives for their family!

"What we do, we do for Jesus Christ, for the honor and the glory of God." Click here to watch video of Daily Apostle touching lives.,

Daily Apostle has been the safety valve for hundreds of desperate families that cannot get on organization Lists. Building the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in Heaven is a year-round Labor of Love. Your annual generous donation, new donors, more volunteers, esp. great bakers are crucial for us to succeed in reaching our goal of 1,200 complete Baskets to needy families. Stand with us in glory as we attempt to reach it. Whatever you give is appreciated. Please have your local group take up a collection or school/business place a non-perishable food basket for students/clients to donate Mid Sept- Oct. Invite friends, family and fellow parishioners to assemble Baskets.

"You are doing this to God the Father, Himself. This is the greatest thing you can do. Your names will be written in the Book of

Life, for what you are doing here today.” –Fr. Steve Mattson 425 Baskets were then delivered into Lansing. Your continued support provides hope, sustenance to our impoverished brothers/sisters in Christ. Tax Receipts are available upon request. Your $55 donation adopts a family of six. They receive a 14-16lb turkey, potatoes, gravy, vegetables, stuffing, dessert, bread & beverage. Your $110 donation adopts two families. A $500 donation adopts six large families; 20-25lb turkeys, extra fixings, groceries for the week. $600-$2,500 donations provide turkeys, apple cider, fruit, cranberry sauce, boxed potatoes, bread pudding, cake mixes, snacks for the kids.
