Jan, from Early Seekers, sent me this awesome note today:

God Morning Friends and Family

Thank you to all those who came this morning to help out at KP. We love and appreciate you so much. We seemed to have plenty of lunches for everyone today… I know many of us have been making extras so that no one goes without. Thank you ! We are very grateful to you all !l. Thank you guys for lugging all our bags of clothing onto the truck for us. And thank you to all who donated the beautiful clothing. Ginny and I go thru them all at church during the week and lable them with sz tags and then we pack them up in our zipper bags, and we take as many of the bags that will fit in our cars and we bring them to KP each week as well..The rest of the bags we leave in our clothing room at pt. The guys on the food truck are so gracious to take them out and lug the rest of them to KP for us, so thanks so much guys.! We love you !

When we first arrived today walking into the park with our stuff a few of the homeless came up to us and said good luck girls… they told us that many people were acting up in the park before we got there . We said a silent prayer, and we didn’t have any huge issues. Thank you Lord, and thank you that you are always there and watching over us and looking out for us and our safety .

Prayer Requests

Homeless needs……… men and ladies, hoodies ,sweatpants, winter jackets, and mens pants (all sizes)

Sharon has many pressures to meet deadlines ,and many responsibilities on her shoulders, also healing of spot on her lung.

Jan ( me ) I need prayer for myself. Today I was a little short with someone who very often gets demanding. I love my friends at kp with all my heart. I really am a huge advocate of the homeless and I am usually very understanding and loving and always standing up for them. anyone who truly knows me, knows that about me. They are truly dear to my heart, but sometimes when some of them get demanding and take advantage of that… It is sometimes” trying” to always respond with a Godly spirit as they are yelling , and today I was not as loving with my words. Although this man knows I love and care about him and he teases me every week because he knows me … but cons me into giving and giving to him, because he is a very close friend of my nephew , and many times gets more than his share…because he thinks I should always favor him. so today he was just getting so demanding and I kind of told him that.I feel bad because I want always to respond nicely and be pleasant and not let my attitude affect anyone wrongly. Please pray that I will always catch myself and respond with a soft and loving answer. I know this man was not offended ( he knows how much I love and care about him) so I am not worried about that,…. but I do want to be always loving and respectful to everyone in all situations. Feeling sad about it all …and need your prayers……. forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 3:13-14

Kelly she was in tears , as her boyfriend got arrested this week and is in jail…God knows the situation,…pray for him ,and her needs at this difficult time.

Dina…. very distraught this morning complaining about the 4-5 ladies who stand in the front of the clothing line each and every week and grab so much clothing that she never gets any, we saved some aside for her but she left and when she came back we offered it to her.. . she apologized and said she was just having such an awful morning.

So the Early Seekers Team had a great day this morning.  Even though it was cold, some wonderful friends warmed their hearts…for more details, please see their updates below:  (I love the Early Seekers!!!!!)

Update 1:

The Early Seekers Ministry is in great need of many items for the  homeless on the streets of Providence. Many of whom are Veterans. If you  are not familiar with us, what we do is meet every Saturday morning at 6:30  AM,  at Kennedy Plaza in front of the bus station. We provide  food, clothing, snacks, beverages, hot coffee and hygienic products for  those who have little to nothing to survive on. If you are able to help,  we are in need of  hygienic products such as soap, lotion, shampoo, razors,  shave cream, etc. as well as socks, cookies, crackers,  apples, bananas, coffee, powdered creamer, sugar pkts, mayo ,mustard  etc.
 
Week after week, the need is getting greater. Right now we are  feeding and providing for 200 -300.
 We are asking anyone who can…. to place a collection  box at your place of employment  or business.  Sharon Cogean sets  up a box  at her office and people bring in all the  complementary toiletries they have gotten from hotels  etc.  This has been a great blessing to  us.  Anything You can do to help would be a huge  blessing. 
 
We will work with you to get the donations to us. 
 
Thank you , Love and Blessings, Jan
 
PS…. Thank You Sharon Cogean for all the much-needed items you are  always providing for us !
 
 and Thank you to all those who provide sandwiches for us every  week… Barbara and Bill McKeon, Josephine  Zinni, Maria, and  Lynn Tatarian, Tommy and Tracy King, Bola, Colleen and Ken,  Dianne. the many friends that make them for Lidia,  All the Early  Seekers who make them as well. And those I may have left out,( sorry if I  did,) God knows who you are. (But Please let me know who you are so I  won’t  forget  you in the future.)

Spring is on the way!! since it was a whooping 6  degrees this morning, I picked this picture to warm you and what can be more  warming than Prayer?
Good morning,  
What a huge blessing at Kennedy Plaza this morn.
We had the honor of having 3 lovely ladies from “HELP  THE HOMELESS IN RHODE ISLAND“, with us this morning at KP.  Coreen St Jean  and Barbara O’Connor Smith  started their own outreach program 6 weeks ago and they and their group have  been giving tons of Food, Clothing toiletries and personal need items to many many Homeless in Rhode Island. They have been moving in leaps and bounds and have moved mountains to bring tons of daily needed Items  to the homeless.
Coreen St. Jean, Barbara O’Connor Smith  and Andrea Smith, Not only took the time out of their already very busy out  reach program but got up Early this morning and brought tons of clothing,  food, and much-needed items and graced us with their presence and worked right  along side of us the whole time to serve the homeless at KP God bless  them.  We can’t thank you ladies enough you are awesome!!!  This brings  tears to our eyes!!!  There had to be 300 people at KP and God sent much-needed help and clothing ETC.  Praise God! Hats off to you ladies you do an  awesome work and thank you for your loving giving hearts.
Andrea Smith, the sneakers you gave us last week went  to a war Veteran that had asked for them; he thanks you so very much. and the blanket went to a man who sleeps outside. He thanks you so very much  also. God bless you. Thanks for making a special effort to meet their needs.  Raymond the war Veteran was not there this week, we were hoping he was so you  could meet him.
God bless Chad, George and Andy and all the helpers that came with you on the food Truck. Sorry We were so busy  across the street we did not get chance to get the names of those who came with you but thanks To You and all for your labor of Love and God bless you  all.

He kept coming back to thank us. he just couldn’t believe it. Brian  Always looks out for our safety at KP. and He helps us carry  stuff and  pack stuff up .

  • A young Man   Said to Jan “I just have one  question for you. “Jan said “what?” He said “Why do you do all this? “Jan said”  because of Love.” He said “but  where does that Love come from?” Jan  pointed to Heaven and he yelled out” Praise God! God bless you all.”

  • Then a  Spanish lady said oh can I have one too ,  Well I had one left and she was so happy.

Hope you had a great weekend…if you have time, please take a look at the update below from our Early Seekers Team.

Last week, I shared the blog on the Facebook page of the Help the Homeless in Rhode Island Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/homelessri/), and they were actually able to donate some of the specific requests that the homeless had voiced a need for when they asked us to pray for them on Saturday morning.  It’s so wonderful to be the answer to someone’s prayer, and I am glad we were able to work together to meet the needs of those less fortunate in our state.  Coreen St. Jean, Andrea Smith and the other warm-hearted individuals in the Help the Homeless in RI Facebook group, thanks for taking the time out of your day to make someone else’s day special.  It’s pretty fun, isn’t it!!!

Without further adieu, the Early Seekers update:

We Had another very blessed morning at Kennedy Plaza,  We passed out many bags of clothing, shoes, toiletries, blankets, lunches,  drinks, snacks, coffee, and Bibles, thanks to you and your labor of love in  prayer and giving and all you do in this very blessed ministry.
