Helping Out

Last nite I did something that I've wanted to do for a long time... I found out about a tent city here in our town, I pass it every single day, ok, well, every single time I'm out. You can actually see them as you drive down 301. I knew of these guys, but how many more are out there? It's been cold and windy here...

So a friend gave me a bit more info and I decided that we needed to go THIS week, I wasn't going to wait any longer. Friday nite we delivered some soup, blankets, hats, and cookies.

It was very humbling to see the look on the Mr Washington's face as we were walking down the trail to deliver the goods. He was very honest and said they were good on blankets, but he did see 2 bigger ones that would keep them warm and kept them. Then Wyse and Mike and Mr Washington picked out 2 hats. Mr Washington said that if we ever came across a propane tank with a hose, he could use that. They use it to cook, but the other nite they turned it on during the nite because it was cold.

Found out Wyse is starting to get a cold, so he got another bowl of chicken rice soup, he said it felt good to eat it! ;)

I can't afford to take them food every day, but I know that I can do something, and I'm going to do what I can. I am going to look through and see if we have any extra hats, extra large sweat shirts to give to them.

I am going to do what I can do as often as I can. This is not going to be a one time service act for me and my family. I will deliver food to Mr Washington, Wyse and Mike again next week.

Please pray for these 3 gentlemen! Especially Wyse as he was feeling like he was starting to get a cold. You know how you feel when you start to get a cold? But you can go to the doc and you can stay in the house away from the cold if you need too... But these guys can't...

Sunday a couple of us are going to get together and going to deliver the rest of the soup and blankets that we have. We found out about a couple other places from Mr Washington...

I'm not writing this to announce and say look at me, look at what we are doing, but I'm saying this so you can pray. Pray about how you want to help...
