We are back from Macon and all of us are changed in some way. Today we stopped at Piedmont Park in Atlanta and walked through handing out Grace Bags to the homeless. We got the idea from Sandra who had seen it in a devotional. All of the youth and leaders went to Wal Mart and picked up items like t-shirts, bottled water, canned food, socks, etc…… we packed them in backpacks and then handed them out. It was a great idea and we were blessed more than those who received the gift.
We met and talked with at least 18 people, some shared some of their story and some thanked Jesus right there on the spot for the gift. We were amazed.
As always we went to serve and we were served by others. Look for pictures from the trip soon.
