Turning the calendar page to reveal a new year is thought provoking. Before looking ahead, I reflect on last year and how so many lives were touched with generousity and the message of God's love for all!  When this ministry began at the end of 2005, I never imagined what it is today and all the events in between!  God is faithful and trusting in Him is the only way Reach & Restore moves ahead.  What an adventure to be in His plans!

The first day back today in 2012 and we were tickled once again by God's orchestration.  A volunteer had repaired a baby crib over the weekend and brought it back into the warehouse.  A few hours later, a referral came in and she needed a crib!  Due in a few weeks, this was a huge blessing!  It was picked up within the hour and other baby items were gathered. We learned the father had just recently been laid off from his job with dozens of others.  There is a story behind every need. I pray more of us will have mercy and just let God work through us with "no strings".

Happy New Year and Thank you for your support which will allow us to continue on this adventure.

Thank you for your help bringing your material donations to our warehouse. It frees us up to deliver to families we are assisting.

We have needs for adult and children's winter boots, coats, gloves and snowpants.  Before leaving them with us, please check for stains, rips and working zippers. THANK YOU!

It's wonderful to hear how God is meeting needs. He is surely meeting needs in your life too.

A few days ago we had a call asking if we wanted a sewing machine for anyone. This is not a common item that is requested, but nice to know if there is one available.  About 5 minutes after that call, a couple walked in that we've met before wanting to make a clothing appointment. They are from another country and have a heavy Yugoslavia accent. We have found that women from that part of the country know and enjoy sewing very much!  She was asked if a sewing machine would be useful and her eyes got big.  Hers isn't working and she would LOVE a different one!   This week we plan to make this happen at their clothing appointment.

God is GOOD!
