"For I was an hungered, and you gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick or in prison, and come unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto youm Inasmuch as y have done it to the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me"
"Blessings In A Basket" is our missions initiative to provide personal toiletries and supplies to "the least of these," the homeless, the unemployed, the elderly, and to disadvantaged people in Louisville and Southern Indiana.
This is the fourth year for this initiative. Our goal this year is to distribute 50 baskets to shelters, transitional homes, nursing homes, and to individuals for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Generally, our baskets contain a Christian t-shirt, toiletries (and/or undergarments) tioletries including shower gel, perfumed body spray, and lotions, a Christian novelty gift, a New Testament Bible, Memory Cross Card with A, B, C's of Salvation, Jesus Saves Newsletter, and candy. Matthew 25:35-40.
