Boxes packed to go to our neighbors.
As a church we decided to use this past Valentine's Day as a day to minister to our neighbors. We realized that this world puts a lot of emphasis on having somebody to love them on this one day. We wanted to let people know that they are loved by God everyday. Here is a pictorial tour of the Show the Love Outreach our church did:
Jorge preparing the CD's.
The CD we included with each pack.
The bags are being packed.
We included a New Testament, a CD, a tract, pen, and church flyer.
Some of the cookies that were baked for our neighbors.
Notice the cross on each cookie.
More cookies. Yummy!
Packing up the last of the boxes.
All the boxes ready to go. We had set a goal of 25 boxes, our church
responded so well, we were able to prepare 50 boxes of cookies to give out.
Richard letting everybody know the plan.
This is most of the group that went out.
Abby and Richard handed out the packages as each team came back.
We kept track of all the addresses, so we can continue to follow-up.
Abby took her job very seriously.
We are praying that we were able to open up communication with our neighbors through this outreach.
