For the second year in a row, LifeGuide’s “Share the Blessing” campaign was a great success! We would like to thank those who participated and shared their story with us, it was huge encouragement.
As a reminder, at Christmas (2015) we sent $50 to sixty of our clients and asked that they give the money to an individual or family who was in need of an unexpected blessing. We would like to share some of the stories with everyone.
This is the third week of “25 Days of Blessing,” in which five different stories being shared each week through the month of February! Stay tuned to hear some of the great stories of how God has worked through this blessing for many individuals and families…
- “I was able to help: a single woman who lives in a room at a motel. She has no car, no phone. She walks to work. I have seen her go down the road to work every day in the evening. It is encouraging to see someone who is trying to help themselves. She was shocked when my husband knocked on her door. She couldn’t understand why someone would do this for her. She was very appreciative. We also matched your money. Our hearts are full.”
- “Through Share the Blessing, I was able to help a family across the street; they were just moving in & had many expenses. I had prayed over my phone book & contact list asking God to show me whom He wanted me to bless. I opened my curtains that morning & the answer was right there! I can just imagine how God must feel blessing us! I just had one blessing to give and I know how it made me feel, but the Lord gives us many! How awesome! Thank you for letting me participate!”
- “We were able to help a first year college student from Malaysia, who is a Christian with little financial support. We got to know him when he stayed with us during the college Christmas break when the dorms closed and he had nowhere else to stay. He is a thoughtful young man whose family is a first generation of Christians. During first semester he worked two work-study jobs so he’s motivated to help cover his finances, as well as to live frugally.
- “I gave the $50 to the janitor at my workplace to give to someone at his retirement complex. He said he gave it to an older couple who have lots of medical bills.”
- “Our friend who we helped has not had an easy life. Losing both of her parents at an early age, she was left to fend for herself at the age of 17. She has no car, since she is not able to afford the gas/insurance/upkeep it would take. In spite of this, she is a hard worker & tries so much! Due to an injury, things are tighter than ever for her. We were so blessed to be able to share this gift with her!”
