“Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:7)

It was late at night, the night before a November cold front that the night shift shelter manager went to take the trash out to the dumpster. He was startled by the sounds of a baby crying in a car parked in our parking lot. Getting closer to the car he realized there was a family of five huddled in the vehicle. The shelter was full all except a newly remodeled room that had been completed that very evening.

Holding back the tears from the sight of children trying to sleep with barely room to stretch their legs, the house manager inquired of their homeless situation. This family recently moved to Pensacola in hopes to start a new life. The family member they were staying with no longer welcomed them in their home. That evening in November, we were able to invite this family into a newly renovated beautiful shelter room.

Through our Emergency Family Shelter Program their immediate survival needs were met; allowing the parents to focus on higher goals for their family. Both parents have been able to accomplish their goals of gaining employment. They are now saving for a house of their own!

Praise the Lord for the “Holiday Cheer” that comes from the abundant giving of our supporters! Your giving and prayer support helps Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen give the hope that these families need to change their lives for the better. The Lord is pleased with your cheerful giving!!

 

Peace in Yeshua,

Rick
