Today we had the opportunity to furnish and dedicate the house to the wonderful family we built it for. We were able to fit 3 separate bunk beds in the house along with a shelf and two rocking chairs!
The family was incredibly gracious, and it was a life changing experience to be able to be the hands and feet of God to provide this new home and feeling of safety and security for this sweet family.
The smiles on their faces (and even some tears) after they unlocked and opened the door to their new home was unforgettable. After helping this one family, God gave us the opportunity to help the community surrounding the family as well.
We filled the bellies of 36 families in the community today and were able to donate clothes and treat bags to all. I’m sure that we all felt God’s presence as we prayed over each family. One of the things that stood out the most today was that even though most families had nothing, their first prayer requests were for us; their thankfulness for our team and for what we were able to bring them.
It was important for me to remember that all the thanks really goes to God. Our team hopes and prays to keep our hearts open as the week goes on so that we can continue to spread the love of God to everyone we meet.
Later in the evening, we were also able to go out on the streets and feed the homeless. I thank God for giving us the resources to be able to do this and to give strength to everyone that needed it tonight. We excited for what the end of the week holds for us!
