As a community, we try to encourage each other not just in our struggle to save money – but also in our calling to give to others in need. When you’ve come from a place of need into a place where you are able to give – you know what a joy it is! So I have a few “Saving” and “Giving” testimonies to share with you today:
Terri French posted this on our Facebook Wall:
“Woohoo!!!! First time shopping while couponing. Spent $102 for $301 worth of product.”
Rose Thompson Smith got all this for $3.24! Way to go Rose!
And now for a story we received from a sweet lady this week (Grab a Kleenex!):
“This last Sunday in our life group meeting (some call it Sunday School), a lady told us about an unchurched family, where the dad has lost his job, they have no car, and there are 4 children ranging from 8 to 16. School is about to start and then I actually found out that the oldest son and his dad were sharing the same pair of shoes. It was through the love of Jesus Christ and the Ministry that you have brought to some of our church ladies that enabled us on Thursday morning to take 2 boxes of slightly used clothes and 2 boxes of food and staples, and school supplies to help this family. My husband said that they were so appreciative. I would have never thought 3 weeks ago that we would be able to do this. God has truly blessed us. Thanks again for all you have taught me. The bible says that before we start telling, to start by showing. I believe that we truly got to show Gods love this week.”
