Hello, my name is Michael Anctil, my wife is Nicole and our son is Obadiah. Several years ago, God gave us a ministry to start with the Homeless, Addicts and those suffering from Mental Illness in our community. This ministry started with giving out ice cold water or Gatorade on hot days in the summer while telling people that Jesus Loves them and sharing our testimony where we could. We now mainly give out new pairs of socks and snack bags filled with a bunch of granola bars, snacks and sweets. We love doing this ministry as we can relate to them because I have been homeless before and my wife and I struggled with Mental Illness and numerous drug and alcohol addictions before we were set free by Jesus Christ. The name God gave us for this ministry is Quenching The Thirst Ministries
The Scripture that drives us is Isaiah 61:1-3 The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD'S favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion – to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.
