GIFTS

We have angels among us!  One of the greatest benefits GIFTS has had in my life is the opportunity to witness our Christian principals in action.  When we hosted in October, there was a morning when one of the guests, when leaving for work, found he had a flat tire.  He was devastated because he was going to be late for work and didn’t have a spare to change the tire.  He would not have the money to buy a new tire until payday at the end of the week.  One of our overnight supervisors gave him a ride to work.  Upon his return that evening, the guest found that his tire had been replaced with a new one.  He was humbled and amazed that someone would do such a nice thing for him.  There was no fanfare, no expectation of repayment, not even a hint of who had blessed our guest.  The anonymous gift of time, labor and money to help out another human being reminded me of Jesus’ instructions on how to pray:  But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen.  Then your Father who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.  Matthew 6:6

 

We serve our heavenly Father by serving one another.  We look forward to the opportunity to serve through the GIFTS ministry when we host at the their new location January 21- 27.
