What can we say?
Ephesians 3:20 has been a verse that we have often been reminded of lately as we witness the Lord powerfully moving here at The Bridge. It reads...
"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more
than all we ask or imagine..."
First... the over 300 people from our community that attended the Community Christmas Lunch were abundantly blessed with a very fine meal and then left with bulging gift bags filled with useful items.
Second... we set what we thought was an ambitious faith goal by asking the Lord to bring $100,000 in for our year end Gift of Dignity partnership opportunity. Well, our supporting community (and likely YOU!) came together and donated nearly $150,000! WAY more than we could have asked or imagined! Now we have enough to get us through a time of the year that donations are typically very slow.
Third... we ran out of eggs one morning and our cook prayed that some would come in. Well, "some" DID come in later that day - a generous donor brought in 40 dozen, and then another two donors brought in some later! And since then, we have been blessed many times over
with an abundance of food and of Free Store items!
AND... we have seen a drug addict hand over all their drugs and paraphernalia, saying that they didn't need them any more, plus two others literally walked away from the drugs that they were about to use!
Yes, we thank God for touching hearts,
and we thank all the people who responded to His prompting.
PRAISE THE LORD!
