As the fourth annual Backpack Giveaway was commencing at C3 Church on Saturday, August 9th, Relational Ministry client “Martha” was not there to enjoy the festivities. “Martha” missed the distribution of her much needed backpacks because she was at the hospital’s emergency room with one of her twin boys. He had suffered minor injuries after falling out of his bedroom window. Martha relayed the unfortunate news to Love INC as soon as she could.
Thankfully, the search for an alternate solution to her backpack dilemma did not last very long. Mary, a longtime financial partner with Love INC, heard about Martha’s story and agreed to help her purchase new backpacks and supplies. Martha was overwhelmed with gratitude. She had thought an ill-fated circumstance was going to set her back again; instead, it provided her with a fresh glimpse of the mercies of God.
“Answer me quickly, Lord; my spirit fails. Do not hide your face from me or I will be like those who go down to the pit. Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.”- Psalm 143:7-8
