24 Bags of Clothes to Charity, Repurposed Money and Helping our Brothers and Sisters
Several weeks ago, I delivered the last 24 bags of men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing to local charities. We collected two truckloads of clothing for the homeless last year, delivering the bulk to PiN Ministries in Va Beach, VA. In fact, we collected so much last year that we had to lease a storage unit to hold it. The storage unit has been cleared out, and the money for the lease has been repurposed for other ministries.
Over the past few weeks, we also had the opportunity to help an elderly couple remove furniture from their home that was repurposed for another person’s home. We also moved a challenging couch and chair from a room over their garage to another room in the house. It didn’t end with moving furniture; we also took care of over 3 acres of lawn maintenance in the past several weeks.
The goal of this post isn’t to say look at what we did, but to illustrate the importance of doing for others, the least of our brothers and sisters. Jesus Christ set the example we are to follow, … are you following His example?
In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”Acts 20:35
