March Praises

The leader of a brand new volunteer group followed up with this note to us: “We had a total blast. Everyone at WLFJ made us feel welcome and needed! We were treated so kindly and each volunteer left feeling good about their time serving and talking about wanting to do it again. Thank you WLFJ for the opportunity to serve the community in Jesus’ name! ” It’s fun for us to see the WLFJ fever caught by new volunteers. We can’t wait for this team to come back.

February Praises

Jessie came for the first time to receive food.  His young son was coming to stay with him for a few days, and Jessie had no food in the house.  His first paycheck was still a week away.  He listened to the short message.  God tugged at his heart.  Jessie received Christ.  He thanked the volunteer for the message and then stopped in the prayer center for the name of a church.  Jessie left with groceries and Jesus!

January Praises

An e-mail from a volunteer:  “My husband and I were sitting at the dinner table tonight talking about our wonderful morning at With Love From Jesus.  We are building such beautiful friendships with the volunteers, people who are so dear to us, people who bless us in many ways.  And today we both heard many expressions of gratitude from our guests.  People were leaving the building with big smiles and thankful hearts.  What a ministry!  What a great God!  What a privilege to play even a small part.  Thank you!”

December Praises

It was Anna’s birthday with thanksgiving just a few days away. She talked to her parents about the party she wanted to have. It was an unusual party. Anna invited her friends to join her for her birthday celebration at WLFJ. They hung clothes, stocked shelves, laughed, and had fun all day serving the King and giving back to Him to celebrate her birthday. Afterwards they all treated themselves to Bojangles for a late lunch. What a special birthday! What a special teen. What a beautiful way to give Thanks!

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’
