When they came to the office the next day, we offered a children's storybook bible for her son, and a bible for Gina*. She said that they would love them. She told us "what you guys are doing here is really amazing," and she expressed her thankfulness many times.
We got to pray with her and talk to her son about how he was starting school. As they left, I could see her son already carrying the bible and smiling so big. She called us later and told us "thank you" again for the products. Her son had very sensitive skin and the Hygiene Ministry had the same products she used to buy for him. She said, "I know they are expensive... it's all just awesome and amazing."
Because of church volunteers giving their time, this woman was met with genuine concern and love. She received prayer and a few items to get back on her feet, which opened a door to relationship. We are honored to witness these interactions!!
