Jesus Saves Ministries Delivers Turkey and Toiletries Baskets at Christmas
Christmas week, Jesus Saves Ministries put in work until late Christmas Eve delivering dinners complete with turkeys to five families who have faced adversity this year. Though the economy appears by news accounts to be improving, and gas prices are down, we know that many families, particularly in poor, black and low-income neighborhoods, are still struggling and need help with food and the basic necessities of daily living.
A couple from the Portland area, requested prayer and the wife was overcome with tears when I delivered a box and toiletries basket to them. The couple follows our ministry on Facebook.
A mother of four whom we've helped previously replied, "Thank you so very much!! You are truly a gift from God. He sent you when I needed you, but was too stubborn to ask. Thank you!! May God continue to bless you and use you to do His works."
A young working mother of three, still very much in need of assistance cried when she got word this turkey basket was about to be delivered her way by Rev. Michael Lee (below).
Rev. Syvoskia Bray Pope, Pastor, New Century Fellowship Christian Church replied on Facebook, "We thank you, Minister Angela for the donation that we used to bless one of our church families. God bless you this holiday season." New Century Church received our last box, and a toiletry basket also.
Over the past six years, Jesus Saves Ministries has distributed approximately 300 toiletry baskets, known as "Blessings In a Basket," to the less fortunate, particularly during the fall and winter months. In the last two years, we have been able to include a few food baskets to our distributions. These turkey dinners were distributed in partnership with the WLOU/Praize 104.7 FM's "One Can Make a Difference" Food and Clothing Drive. In November, Jesus Saves Ministries and the Compliments of Ree Hair Salon received enough donations to feed seven families. We are grateful that we have been able to help make a difference yet again at Christmas in the lives of a few families. To God be the glory!
