Our ladies in our ministry have really been stepping up and helping me with everything I have had going on, they have sorted clothes for our homeless outreach (some not so appealing, long story and I was sworn to secrecy), and had a lot of fun in the process. We sorted through so many clothes that it started to turn some people (who shall remain nameless) a little crazy
Just me and my girls, having some serious fun.
That was before our canned food and toy drive. The ladies of our ministry stepped up and combined with a few teenagers (and some of my kids) and spent two days in the cold collecting canned food, unwrapped toys and any donations for our Angel Tree party that people wanted to give. All in all we did great! We raised $300 in cash, two tables full of canned food and about 20 toys for our kids that we adopt. If anyone would like to donate or learn more about Angel Tree check it out.
We had such a great time collecting things and I am so proud of what we were able to accomplish! While at Walmart we had a guy walk by that we stopped and told him what we were doing, and he went into Walmart and when he came back out, he stopped by us and unloaded 6 bags, 3 of name brand toys (Disney Barbies and Hot Wheels) and 3 of name brand canned food items (Del Monte green beans, corn, Ocean Spray cranberry sauce) and put the cart away, he didn't have anything for himself. That was the greatest experience out there.
This weekend we did a homeless outreach at Unity Park in Ft. Worth, this was our second time out there in a month. We combined with Shilo Cowboy Church, Victory Family Church and Venus Key Club. We went for the first time and had such a great experience that we had to come back again. There are so many pics that it would take forever to post them all on here. They are all on our ministry page www.facebook.com/noturningbackministry.
Like I said so much has been going on and so much is getting ready to take place with our Angel Tree party, Christmas on the Square and all of our other Christmas things that are going on that I will try to post as often as I can. Just thought I would pop in for a quick post! Thanks everyone for getting me to 427 reads!! You guys know you can follow me too right?
