December Praises

Ella is a regular guest.  After shopping, she returned to her car to find that the battery was dead.  Another guest, dressed in scrubs, offered her jumper cables.  They struck up a conversation as these two ladies together got Ella’s car running.  Ella found out that her new friend worked for a home care service for the elderly.  Ella took the information and contacted the company about a job.  She was hired.  Ella recognized that in the midst of her difficult circumstances, God was doing His own work of provision for her.

November Praises

Alice had been coming to the ministry for a few weeks with a friend.  She was in a car accident and struggled to walk using a cane.  As she labored to make it from her shopping cart to the restroom, she asked the volunteer if we ever received the type of walkers that have a seat.  The volunteer prayed with her for God’s provision.  As she began to shop, a volunteer brought her a walker exactly like what she had prayed for only a few minutes earlier.  A donor had just left one at the donation door.  God’s perfect provision and timing were a great blessing to both Alice and the volunteer.

October Praises

She arrived thirty minutes after we closed for donations. Her day had been challenging. She was headed out of town, but wanted to get her beautiful ‘treasures’ to us. Praying all the way to our building for someone to be there, Alice walked in the door apologizing for being late. We were still cleaning up and organizing things after our own challenging day. We were thankful that we hadn’t left yet for the day. She had been to Bed, Bath and Beyond where she found a huge sale–80% off. There was nothing in the sale rack that she needed,

September Praises

We praise God for the release of book #2 of our CEO Linda H. Williams titled Ordinary Days. Blending stories from the Bible, the lives of volunteers and honored guests at WLFJ and her own personal life, Linda shows us that when we celebrate and share the goodness of God, our faith is strengthened, and we become part of the amazing things He does through ordinary, normal lives.

August Praises

THANK YOU BODY OF CHRIST. WE MATCHED OUR GRANT!! Thank you for every prayer and every dollar given to help us match this great and timely provision. Summer can often be time in the non-profit world where donations are lower. We watched again the Body of Christ pull together in unity to let Jesus be seen! It was wonderful to have this gift and all the gifts that came together to match it. God takes care of us!  Thank you for being part of His Provision.

July Praises

For many who come to the US from other countries, With Love From Jesus has become a place to receive not only needed resources but also prayer and compassion. What a privilege it is for this ministry to have such a beautiful stewardship into the lives of so many.

June Praises

Thank you to everyone who prays for our staff and volunteers who are serving in these hot temperatures. We understand that many can’t tolerate the heat. Each day we are thankful for those who can serve and give their time to this Kingdom work. Sweating for Jesus is a privilege.

 

May praises

As volunteers sorted donations many beautiful treasures were uncovered. New–in the-box–flatware, cookware, toys in their original wrappings. (We aren’t allowed to take used toys, but these were brand new!)  Several sets of gently used sheets were also sorted. Each set was bagged with top, fitted, pillowcases and a tag with the size included. These are treasures to our guests, but also help get items on the shelf more quickly!

March Praises

Vickie came to the prayer center with her little daughter. She needed a twin mattress. They had a box spring but no mattress. We had a mattress but no box spring. God made it work. Yeah Jesus!

January Praises

Looking back at 2021 can only produce praise and worship to Jesus. He has again carried us through a year that had more than its share of challenges. However, His provision, His wisdom, His guidance, and His redemption have been greater than any hard places. We are overcome with gratitude to Him for His goodness poured into us and our community.
