Kinder & Gina Write…
Through an unexpected connection with a local bakery, we started weekly distributing their surplus bread and cake through knocking on doors and connections from local agencies in our community. Within 18 months we have a thriving ministry on the doorstep of local families and businesses.
We’ve loved getting to know our community. One lady seems to know everyone, and cares for her neighbours.
SHE’S ALWAYS PASSING ON WHAT SHE RECEIVES TO THOSE AROUND HER – INCLUDING ONE FAMILY WHERE THE SMALL CHILDREN LOVE THE LITTLE BREAD ROLLS FOR THEIR LUNCH – IT MAKES THEM FEEL POSH.
It’s been amazing to connect with people and their everyday needs. There have been many practical ways to help, from sourcing essentials – like a bed, microwaves, blankets, and clothing, even Christmas gifts – as well as helping people navigate the council systems.
Another lady lost her husband suddenly and we were privileged to be invited to the wake, and to take her to collect his ashes, and to pray for her and her family. She said, “You show people who are lonely and struggling that you care. I know if I wanted you to sit with me when I’m struggling you would make time for me.”
