The Fruits of Seeds Planted

Many times, we don’t get to see full-circle what happens with a neighbor in need’s situation, but every once in a while God gives us a glimpse. Our Clearinghouse Coordinator, Karin, shared this story from last week:
“A neighbor recently served by Libertyville Covenant Church‘s furniture team stopped by today to donate several items and return bed linens we had delivered to her in March. She was not in need of the linens and wanted to share them with someone else in need. (The returned sheets were more answered prayer, as our shelves are currently empty!) She shared that she and her husband are doing better right now. He is back to work and she is finishing school.
Long story short… all of the acts of kindness, and more importantly, Christ’s love, expressed to this young woman and her family, moved them to want to give back. She was truly grateful for our help and keeps us in the forefront of her thoughts. Things are getting better for her, and I know our incredible volunteers’ time and efforts certainly had a very needed positive impact on this family.”
