Tonight, our Homebuilders class conducted a Thanksgiving outreach activity. The goal- to provide Thanksgiving Dinner baskets for some needy families in our community. Our purpose is to share the Gospel with these families. This was the first time many of our families have ever done anything like this and they were truly excited!
We were able to provide 11 baskets of food for the families who come on our bus. It was a joy to share the Gospel many times. But more than that- it was a blessing to see one bus mom bow her head and accept the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Saviour. That’s what it’s all about!
I am thankful that we had the opportunity to do for others tonight. I know that this will be a Thanksgiving tradition in the Zarate household. I have found that (both in studying the Bible and personal experience) joy comes from giving away what God has blessed us with. Whether it’s the Gospel, our resources, our talents, or time, Jesus said it best, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”
