Homeless Bags

My husband is the most compassionate man I have ever met.

He is generous, giving, and passionate about Christ.

He has a heart for the needy, and the hurting of this world. We sponsor three kids from World Vision...{{check them out through the tab above!}}. And I know he has a heart to sponsor as many as we can possibly afford. This compassionate side of him is only one of the reasons I fell in love with him...but it's a MAJOR reason why I love him still.

We heard a great talk from a lady who works with the homeless at church a while back. She spoke of what the homeless needed and what they didn't need.

She said that they didn't need money as much as they needed things. Like socks, food, or water. But mostly they just needed the know about Jesus and needed to know that people care about them.

So this is what James decided to do...



A Homeless Bag

And here's what's inside!


Socks

Tissues

Rain Poncho

Toothbrush

Deck of Playing Cards

Bottled Water

Granola Bars

Trail Mix

Pocket Bible

Hand Sanitizer

You can always add different things in your bags too! One of the things that they are always grateful to receive here in Colorado are the socks. And we make sure to not have food in the bags that could melt, or rot. That way they can just stay in our car until ready to be given away.
We stocked up on them and always keep them in our car. James makes sure to pull the car over, get out and talk to them. He finds out there name, a little bit about them, and always tells them he's praying for them.

It's a blessing to be married to a man of his character.

Now go make your own!!!
