I pray this finds you well & Blessed beyond compare. I know that we have been. Even in the midst of enduring 2 hurricanes (in less than a month!) this year, our families are safe. However, there are many others who are struggling to recover and are in further need of our help once again. Loss and need can make people feel even more hopeless during Thanksgiving and Christmas. We must reach out to our neighbors who have the most difficult time recovering.
God has been faithful to provide for this effort every year, but this year is starting off remarkably different than the past. I am being humbled to have to ask directly for assistance with the financial needs. It takes about $20,000 per distribution to provide for those with the greatest need. Our bank account is currently less than $1000. The need is real and it is urgent!
While we have great faith in Jesus and are witnesses to His provision in the past, His word tells us that “faith without works is dead”. We need YOUR help now more than ever. Please consider helping us by contributing financially now & sending this out to whomever you may feel might help us also. 100% of your donation will go directly to feeding our neighbors who are hungry. All administrative costs are donated. Your money WILL feed people.
This event has helped to make a huge difference in the lives of those in need right here in rural Pitt County. Over 1200 complete meals (meat, vegetables, drink & dessert) assembled for families of 8 were distributed in 2017. Many of these families stretch it further to feed even more. That equates to almost 10,000 MEALS for the hungry!!! This was accomplished In only 2 days….. for approximately $30/box! GOD IS GOOD!!
This is not a one-time but a LIFE-time event. As long as people are in need or hungry Jesus calls us to meet those needs.
““Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’”
Matthew 25:37-40 NKJV
Please help us by giving and by coming to the distribution and volunteering. The joy of being God’s hands and feet is hard to describe in a letter, but a blessing awaits you for giving and for helping.
With God's Grace & Blessings (& YOUR help!), the food distributions this year are scheduled for:
Thanksgiving Saturday, November 17, 2018 - 7:45 a.m. - 12 noon
Christmas Saturday, December 22, 2018 - 7:45 a.m. - 12 noon
Please know that your assistance in ALL areas (Prayer, Volunteering & Financial!) is NEEDED again this year. With your help and generous gift we can again make this a successful distribution, so that 1200 families can sit down to a meal at Thanksgiving and Christmas .
Looking forward to working with you to help our neighbors in need!
Thank YOU & God Bless! https://www.facebook.com/FirstBornGrimeslandNC
