“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” -Matthew 5:16
Just before the start of a new school year our children were blessed by a local Boys Scout troop in which Garret Goodwin led a project to update our Children’s Shelter. Garret took it upon himself to raise funds with the help of his troop to bring the children some joy. They children were very surprised when they came home and saw brand new things in their game room (which was originally all donated from a church member and her family). They received fishing poles, basketballs, footballs, a tabletop game which includes air hockey, foosball, basketball, pool, etc. They received the newest video game system, Nintendo Switch, and much more! On top of that the troop brought us another dining room table so all children and staff could sit together and share meals as a family, they brought new furniture for storage and our TV, but most of all they brought glory to our Father in Heaven! Sharing the love of Christ with these children goes beyond any reward one could receive here on earth. Watching your hard work pay off with the smiles of our shelter’s children could be your reward as well when you partner with us. Thank you, Garret, for allowing your light to shine before us so that we may give all the glory to God!
