I live in New York State. I have 2 children--both boys--and they are 24 and 23. I have 3 grandchildren--boy age 5, girl age almost 3, and boy age 1 1/2. I run a ministry of my church that gives out clothes, toys, books, furniture, household items, personal items and many other things. We also supply a free meal. It is open 2 times a month to the public in the community. We have people come from many miles for fellowship and free stuff. So many times there will be places open just for the poor, but we are open to all. There are many people who work hard to pay bills and have no $ left to buy clothes, especially trying to raise children too. Many elderly people come to have fellowship and partake in the meal. One elderly woman was so grateful for the clothes she received. She told me the gas bill was so high and she was unable to afford clothes which she desperately needed. As she was telling me this, she started crying because she was so blessed that she didn't have to pay anything. These are the people and the reasons why God blessed us so much to be able to open this ministry. Everything is donated--even the building that we use along with electric and wood stove heat and water. God is good!!!
