HOMELESS SAY THANK YOU for Caring to provide Food, Clothing, Shelter!
Cipriano Bargas is a convicted Felon, Court Ordered to perform Community Service work as a part of his probation agreement. One of our Training Center Leaders, Banjo, watched Cipriano as he was moved by compassion to see the 100+ Homeless enter our gates, with so many needs.
Cipriano could not bear to see the Homeless man enter our gates barefoot, walking on asphalt with a heat index over 118 degrees. Cipriano took off his own shoes and gave them to the Homeless man, whose eyes suddenly came to life when his feet were relieved of searing heat.
Cirpriano went to his car trunk and pulled out an old pair of tennis shoes he used for grass cutting. He wore his old work shoes the rest of the day, content in knowing he had relieved suffering.
Having given up my own shoes to barefoot Homeless men, in the dead of a brutal cold winter as well as a brutal hot summer, I know the blessing that is shared between us…the bond of love as a Homeless man is comforted by the sacrifice of another moved of God to act…that personal, three-fold bond is an unforgettable blessing, exactly what Christ intended for us when He commanded us to Feed the Hungry, Clothe the Naked…
Are there no clothes in your closets that would be best worn by a person in desperate need?
Are there no funds in your savings to help us gather surplus food and clothing for the Homeless? Are there no minutes in your life to obey God to personally “Feed the Hungry, Clothe the Naked, Shelter the Homeless, Preach the Gospel, Make Disciples?” or pray for us who do?
THANK YOU WHO DONATE OR COLLECT THESE VITAL CLOTHES!
They are not proud of how they look at the moment, or of their circumstances. Good used clothes lifts the poor in spirit, encourages them that somebody cares enough to help them up.
SEE THE DIFFERENCE YOU MADE IN THEIR EYES/FACES/LIVES!
MORE PRECIOUS MEMORIES!
