Do for the one…

“Do for the one what you wish you could do for everyone.”

It’s a good word. Sometimes we don’t do anything because we’re so overwhelmed by the needs that surround us, it can seem like what we have to offer can’t possibly make a difference. Our experience has taught us that it almost always can, if we start in the lives of just one or two people.

We have that opportunity before us this week. There’s a homeless couple that one of our students is doing life with. Here’s a list of their needs we can meet:

From SAM’s Club:

  • Heavy Winter Socks
  • Distilled Water
  • Diaper Wipes
  • Men’s and Women’s Deoderant
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrushes
  • Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Laundry Detergent
  • Dryer Sheets

They also need:

  • Three Large Laundry Bags
  • Rolls of Quarters for the Laundromat

If you can purchase any of the above items, or take care of the cost to do so, please contact Melissa by calling or texting at 618-973-6625 or email her at penguinjoy4life@gmail.com. Items can be brought to church on Sunday evening or dropped at Cornerstone.

Let’s be praying for Jordan and Zeke that God will bless them and keep them. That He’ll make His face shine upon them. That He’ll turn His full countenance upon them and give them peace. (from Numbers 6:24-26)

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me….Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.  —  Jesus   (Matthew 25:35,40)
