I am very proud of the work my sister, Linda and her husband, Rob are doing with homeless people. They are spearheading a mission to feed the unfortunate people who find themselves without a home in which to live in their area. They cook food and deliver it, on site, to hungry individuals and families. These people live in a nearby park and depend on the kindness of others to meet their needs. Rob and Linda, along with some long-time friends, Gary and Charlene, do an excellent job showing the love of Christ to these people.
They shared with me today that, this time of year, several churches are delivering food to the homeless. I am reminded that homelessness is an issue beyond the holiday. Maybe we can all do something to help address this growing problem in our country and maybe 2010 will be a year of action. I like Bob Hope’s quote here: “My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?”
Way to go, Linda and Rob and friends. We are proud of you! And we know that God is using you to make a huge difference!
