After issuing an urgent plea, you responded and responded BIG! Thank you from the depths of my heart. Thank you for taking the time to listen, and thank you for sharing with those in need from your storehouse.
You have answered God's nudge and enabled The Well to meet the needs of our neighbors who are struggling. It has been such a blessing to see all of this unfold. You are providing the funds, God sent a contact with a local grocery who is helping to fill our orders, and we have young volunteers and interns who are filling the grocery bags and making the deliveries. We are meeting the needs with as little social contact as possible. Together we are feeding the hungry.
a huge impact is being made to love our neighbors well. I have seen love in action in a profound and moving way!
Perhaps you are like me and wonder ~ What can I do to help? I am vulnerable--so I am socially confined to my home base. How can I help with limited mobility? By using the talents God has given me and keeping the need before you of those most threatened.
Yes, Praise God, we are helping feed the sheep, BUT it is not a one time and done deal. The sheep must be fed weekly and we will be working to make these deliveries weekly as long as the need exists.
We see the government stepping up to fulfill some of the needs, but let me promise you---it is never enough. Living on a shoe string that is fraying is difficult at best. Please continue to help us to keep our friends and neighbors fed as long as this crisis lasts. We don't know what tomorrow holds, but we do Know the provision of a loving God. Share your provision and help take care of your neighbor is what I am asking. When you sit down to eat, remember the women and children who are vulnerable and struggling and pass your surplus.
Above all--no matter if you are isolated are not---PRAY! We can all pray---God will answer our prayers--but first you must lift those prayers to a merciful God. Pray without ceasing for those who are most vulnerable, those who are affected by the virus and their families, those who are mourning their loss of loved ones, those who are putting their lives on the line by continuing to serve us in many areas, for our local, state, national, and world leaders. PRAY, My Friends, PRAY! And may we all continue to put action behind our love as we walk this uncharted path. God is not surprised and He is by our side, now let's all take action and love our neighbor.
Do not be anxious about anything,
but in everything by prayer and supplication
let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God,
which surpasses all understanding,
will guard your hearts and minds
in Christ Jesus.
