13 Apr 365 Days of Love: Day 66 ~ Food for the Needy, Gave to, Prayed For a Homeless Man
Spent half a day preparing food for the hunger, was at Harvesters for half the day sorting snack cups, about 500 lbs of them. Like pudding, Jello and apple sauce into 18 lbs box’s to be giving to the needy. After finishing that I labels unlabeled #10 cans (that’s restaurant sized ones) of green beans. Then boxed them up to be giving to the needy, about 300 of them. There is always a way to give to, help those in need, even if you do not have money to give, you can give time to feed, help those in need. I gave my time to love others, to help those in need.
On my way to the Freedom Fire Staff prayer meeting I met James, a homeless man who was a war veteran. I was able to give him a little money to buy some food with as well as share God’s love with him. Wanted to do more but he was at the top of freeway ramp and the light turned green and lots of traffic behind me so I had to leave after a short conversation with him. If when we are shot of time as well as money, even a few minuets and a couple of dollars can effect a person life who is in need.
Spent the afternoon with the Freedom Fire staff for prayer, prayed for the staff as well as the inner city poor and the children whom the ministry is working with. Heard lots of praise reports about what God did the last week in the ministry. Many came to Jesus, many lives changed. The new church plant has out grown its space, a much bigger place is needed to accommodate the growing number. Praise God for that.
I was able to love on the staff though encouragement and prayer for them. I was able to love on the people in the inner city by giving time to prayer for them, to love on them via prayer, lifting them up to God, going before God on their behalf, what a privilege.
What a great being to this week, doing acts of love for others, by giving time, money and prayer. Lord I pray the rest of the week is even more filled with acts of love for others.
