I’m excited on one hand for tomorrow as we give the toys away we’ve been able to collect over 200 so far. I could not have done this alone without the help of a few friends who stepped up to help the many kids with presents and because of that we will be helping the mom and dads too.
Yesterday I was sharing about tomorrow with a mom and her young daughter said “mom could we please go since we don’t have a tree and presents. She said of course we will be here her little girl paused could I save my present for Christmas morning?” That’s what it’s all about my friends. It’s such a joy to be able to help others in need.
We also once again because of my friend Alvin the Store Director of Albertson’s in Redondo Beach raising money for Christmas dinners for families. If you could help please go to our website now at www.newchallengeministries.com or here on our face book page at http://www.facebook.com/#!/NewChallengeMinistriesInc?fref=ts or you could come buy….all donations for the dinners will go exactly for that. Here is our mailing address too: New Challenge Ministries, P.O. Box 5152, Torrance, CA 90510 just put a note if your donation is for the dinner or if it’s just to help us help others.
I hear this a few times:
“Do I heat the house or feed my children?”
What do you do when you work hard and still can’t pay the bills? Things have been bad for mom’s and dad’s and without help from friends like you, Christmas might be just another day on the calendar. A day filled with rumbling stomachs and painful hunger.
Please give generously today to help us to help the mom’s and dad’s to feed their children like a Christmas meal. Send your gift before December 25 so we can feed as many as possible.
Your gift large or small will help us to help families and children in need.
If you’re like me, you believe that no one should go hungry at Christmas. Over the next two weeks, let’s care for as many as possible. Let’s show Christ’s love to families this Christmas.
As Solomon wrote many, many years ago, “Blessed are those who are generous, because they feed the poor.” Proverbs 22:9
I also have a young mom and dad looking for an apt. they have one boy 4 and a little girl two. They can only afford $750.00 per month if you know of anything in the Carson; Wilmington area please let me know as soon as possible. Thank you.
The sadness is the many that want to take their lives that I have spoken too or are dying that have shared with me they may not make it to see Christmas or the New Year.
The mom, of the young boy of 12 sent me a note with $5.00 “Pastor I can’t tell you that this year I could be at the graveyard for my son but you stepped in to help him to let him know that you care and no money or words could tell you how grateful I am. I know you’re a very busy man but you’ve been calling every other day to let him know you care. He’s so excited for Christmas what a difference you made in our lives. Thank you. With the help of North High Key Club my wife and I bought him the PS3 he has always wanted and two games another friend is sending a game to him too.
God bless you all.
