This morning we both woke up with the pile of bags we had seen yesterday on our minds. We set out to find homes for some of them. These bags contained specific items for women and children. These bags were not appropriate for our ministry with the homeless. We found a shelter that helps women in bad situations and their children…perfect. We found a home for 36 bags.
Later today we had a conversation with a sweet woman who works in the entrance booth of the park. We found out that she had a friend who along with her friend’s 20 year old grandaughter lost everything in a fire recently. We were able to put together a bag of items for each of them. The thoughtful friend’s name happens to be Mrs Angel….she says she wasn’t born an Angel but married one!
Today was a great day for us…can’t wait to see what’s to come.
