November gratitude

For every church, youth group, community group and individual that volunteers or collects resources for us, we are thankful. You are keeping us in “business.”  God’s great business is all around us. Your partnership with us in this Kingdom Business is wonderful, exciting, and valued greatly.

September Praises

Watching the beautiful Body of Christ come together to make Jesus known is a constant joy!  Believers from many different backgrounds, cultures, ages, stages of life, and diversity help us value and appreciate God’s unique plan for displaying unity among us.  With our recent expansions in our Wake County facility and the growing numbers of honored guests in both places, we find ourselves always needy for God to show up and do the impossible.  Change is very challenging but also needed if we are to grow!  Growth means that we have to make the accommodations for these great ways that our God is at work among us. 

August Praises

We love the Body of Christ. With Love From Jesus wouldn’t exist without the Body! Watching believers from many different churches come together to display our unity and bless our communities is always a blessing.  In these huge transition days of moving into our two new spaces, we have more than ever been encouraged and blessed by the diversity of His Body.

July Praises

The admin volunteer answered the phone to hear a voice on the other end say: “Yesterday two volunteers prayed with me for my sister who was very sick and she is now much improved.  I just wanted to say thank you and let you know your prayers made a difference.”  Now that is the kind of phone call our team loves to answer!

June Praises

A financial gift arrived in the mail with an out of state postmark from someone named Kathy.  We inquired from the donor to learn how they  knew about With Love From Jesus.  A subsequent gift arrived along with a lovely note.  Kathy had been a guest of the ministry for 10 years and regularly visited the prayer center.  During those years she had been in an abusive relationship.  Several years later, the Lord not only helped her to get away from the abuser but had blessed her with a godly mate.  She desired to pass onto others from the deposit the Lord had made in her!

May praises

It is always a blessing to see the Body of Christ come together to serve our community. We don’t allow ourselves to get side tracked with doctrinal differences, political opinions, or even the conditions in this world right now. We focus on the what all believers agree on:

  • There’s only one way to Father God and that’s through His Son Jesus
  • We all stand on equal footing with the Lord–children of the King
  • Our focus is to display we are ONE
  • Our mission is to get others to join ‘The Family’

April Praises

A teary donor came to donate 2 dressers her late father had made for her daughters when they were young. Her daughters, now in their 40’s, wanted to pass them on to a family with small children that could be blessed by these treasurers. About 10 minutes later, they were given away to a young mom with two little girls. The donor was able to share her story with the new owner of these precious gifts. It was a blessing for both donor and guest!  A bi-lingual volunteer explained that the guest had recently moved to this area from Guatemala.

March Praises

The new giver arrived dressed up like a leprechaun along with many others from his company. They came bearing gifts!  Paper products, paper products and more paper products. Since his visit with us two weeks earlier, his company had been busy. Every client was told about WLFJ and invited to purchase a pallet of paper products. Many took him up on his offer to purchase and deliver their gifts. He rented a huge box truck and delivered the treasures along with lunch for our volunteers. What a fun day! 

Two days later, we had youth groups and a local church scheduled to serve. 

February Praises

Mary Ann is a regular guest in Johnston County. She asked several times for a bed, but we didn’t have one. On another visit she asked again and received prayer again. This time we had exactly what she was looking for–a nice single bed was perfect for her small room. As she shopped for food and other needed resources, a donor came to the front door and handed a volunteer a bag. It was a beautiful comforter set for a single bed. Mary Ann not only got her bed but freshly washed linens as well. Each time she comes back to shop,

January Praises

A father and his young son came to shop.  The dad was asking for blankets.  We had given all we had away, however, the volunteer remembered sleeping bags that were set aside and shared those with the guest.  The little boy was excited and thankful, continuing over and over to thank the volunteer for his new blanket.  Most children his age are excited about a new toy or gadget.  This little guy was blessed to have a warm blanket.  “Thank You, Jesus.”  It was our pleasure to meet this need in Jesus’ Name with the prayer that every time they cover up on a cold night,
