MERRY CHRISTMAS 2021
A Psalm of Thanksgiving
SENIOR FOUND A NEW WAY TO SERVE
Here is a message from one of our saints who wanted to share his experience when he started with the Red Wagon.
My name is David. I am 71 years old (I had a hip replacement) and I can't do very much! I attend Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, CA. I hope you will read this message. I thought it might be of some interest to you. It shows what the Lord can do if we listen to him and then follow what he has to say!
My wife and I belong to what we call the "Red Wagon." The Red Wagon started as a church group that fed the homeless on Mondays and Thursdays. We fed approximately 300 homeless people every week!
Over the years, I have prayed for something I could do for the church. I can't carry a tune, can't teach, etc. Well, finally the Lord spoke to me! As I was wrapping the forks and spoons into the napkins (our health dept. requires us to do this!) the Lord told me that we are feeding the homeless food so why not give them a Bible verse to take with them, more food! Well, I finally found something I can do! I print out approx. 300 Bible verses each week, 25 verses, then change to a new verse. I hand write them, using a colored marking pens. Only three colors: red (title), blue (the verse), black (where it is found in the Bible. I print them on my home copier. I get two on each sheet of 8.5 x 11 standard paper. I cut them in half and wrap one in each napkin with the fork and spoon. Everyone gets a verse with their meal.
Very few people have thrown them away! One lady found hers. She had accidentally thrown it away with her napkin. She says she saves all of them. This is something simple that anyone can do.
Maybe you know someone that wants to serve the Lord and doesn't know what to do. By taking the first step which was joining "Red Wagon," the Lord showed me what I can do. I AM REALLY BLESSED!!!
Thank you for reading this message. I hope you enjoyed it!
God bless you!
