After several months, and nine thousand miles of travel, the boxes that we shipped to our partners in the Philippines finally arrived a few days ago. In these boxes were shoes, medicines, shirts, socks, handbags, and much more.
We get most of the medicines from a local organization that receives returned items from Walmart. There is first aid items, vitamins, cold and flu medicine, and all sorts of other helpful things. These items are too expensive, or not available at all to the people we send them to. It is always a blessing to them to have access to the much needed contents of these boxes.
This time we were able to ship boxes to two new pastors whom we have not sent things before. They are using the items to help the poor and needy. They also use the items as a way to start gospel conversations with people who are lost and need Christ. Many of the items are also shared with the families in their churches.
We are able to send these boxes because of your generous giving to our ministry. Lives are being touched for the glory of God and souls are being saved as a result.
As a reminder, we have two BIG opportunities to give coming up soon.
The special offering Sunday is this coming week on Sunday, February 26th. We are asking our supporting churches to receive a special offering for the unsheltered on that day. All the info is here https://www.unsheltered.org/livebenefit.
Next up will be our annual Live Benefit held on Thursday, March 9th. You can find all the info on that here https://www.unsheltered.org/livebenefit
Feel free to reply to this email with any questions about these two awesome opportunities.
Thank you and God bless,
