Our family received an envelope with $20 at the reverse offering at Hope Hill’s 4th anniversary. We took awhile to pray and think about what to do with it – there are so many needs and worthy causes and charities. Andrew and I always want our gifts and talents to bless people, but with hobbies (like baking for me) its not always so obvious how to do that. I asked Margaret (who is very involved with ministering to the homeless in Woodbridge) and she agreed that the homeless community would really appreciate a special treat made with extra love 🙂 So I got all the ingredients and made one goodie bag for each of the 18 residents in Spirit’s camp. Our family’s hope is just to bring a smile to their faces and let them know we care enough to make something special just for them. Being a part of the Stormin Norman Band’s homeless benefit concert last night and getting to meet and see the people brought this little effort full circle for us.
