Dear all at Food For Friends:
Thank you so much for the opportunity and the blessings.
There are many great stories to this event here are few I like to share.
One family that received a blue bag was an elderly couple with very low income. The husband was just released from the hospital after few weeks in treatment with a life threatening event. His adult daughter is fitting a battle against cancer. They are a Christ loving family and I know they are thankful for the blessings.
Among other families blessed with the food bags were four families that recently came from Puerto Rico after being displaced by the damage caused by hurricane Maria.
And one other family is from the local school district from the student homeless program was also blessed with a food bag.
We received many thanks from the community. The volunteer are super excited and already planning for next year if it is God’s will.
Also like to share that few of the local pastor are asking me how to get involved next year, I will coordinate with those as time get closer to next even. I also have a friend pastor in Aurora that is interested in participating on next year even.
God’s willing we will be able to to this again.
On behalf Iglesia Cristo Redentor and the Elgin community; I like to express are must sincere thanks. May the Lord bless all that are involved with the Food for Friend ministry. We pray that the merciful Lord continue to provide to you and bless you in abundance in the coming year 2018.
