One of our great volunteers, Ginny, sent me an email this morning providing me with the following update on today’s happenings with Early Seekers down at Kennedy Plaza.  They are down there (and at Crossroads) every single Saturday morning handing out clothes and bagged-lunches to the homeless as they are getting off the buses (most shelters close early in the morning and the homeless have nowhere to go but the bus station).  The Food Truck gets a lot of publicity, but the Early Seekers are the very essence of RI Dream Center.  I hope you enjoy her update as much as I do:

What an awesome morning we had at Kennedy Plaza, It  was  so exciting to see so many of them with the backpacks we passed out on  November 16th,  Praise God!  God bless you all once again for making  it all possible and for all you do all year long.

We had the honor of having Bob Ekno with us this morning. He brought Clothing to pass out. He is the host of  a Christian talk show In California which gives all beautiful testimonies of how  God turned peoples’ lives around. He is also the author Of the book “God bless America  before it is too Late.” He Also works with the homeless in Calif.  He is up here  visiting his family and plans on coming to PT tomorrow also.  He was so touched with all we do at Kennedy  Plaza . the food truck etc . Even though it was a whooping 14 degrees out , he stayed the whole time, It must have been extra cold for him as he came from  much warmer climate. God bless him. 

We had the honor of Christina & Randy helping on  the food truck this morning. God Bless you

We passed out many bags of clothing and shoes and  blankets and many lunches as well and People were so thankful. 

Here are some of thing things we are thankful for…

A man we gave some clothing to, we gave him a canvas bag to put his clothing in and then we noticed that the top of the bag was torn, so I said oh wait a minute that bag is ripped We will get you another bag, we have a lot more.

He Insisted that the bag  we gave him was fine he said see I just fold it over like this, save the other bags for someone else, This is good. I said God bless you he said no God bless all of you I am just so thankful  for the clothing and al you do.  Wow! How many of us might be hot under the collar if someone gave us a torn bag? Talk about being thankful!!!!! Beautiful people with thankful hearts. ( Brings tears to your eyes)

John  a homeless man gave me $2:00 and said I want to make a donation, this is so awesome all you do here. I want to help out he said. I said God bless you, He said no God Bless all of you. ( brings tears to you eyes)        

A homeless Lady came to us and said I have a whole bunch of cloth ,canvas and sturdy bags with handles on them for you to give to people to carry their clothes in. I said oh that is so very nice of you God bless you, She said No God bless all of you for the awesome work you do here. (It brings tears to your eyes) how they want to be a part  of Giving and how thankful they are.

Ken:  My sister Jan had bought some backpacks and supplies with her own money to give to anyone who did not get one and really needed one. Last week Ken said I don’t have anything and Jan said I will bring you a backpack with supplies in it. So she Gave it to him and he was so thankful. He opened it and found the bag of toiletries in it and came running back with the bag of toiletries in his hands and said oh my God I need these so much, I can’t thank you enough. He was also thrilled with the hat scarf gloves other supplies and the backpack. Praise God. And God bless Jan For his and all the others she gave out. They were so thankful also.       

Many People were so hungry they ate their sandwiches as soon as we gave them to them and because it was the first of the month and there were not as many people there we had extra sandwiches and we gave some of them another  Sandwich and they ate that second sandwich right away and said i was so hungry Thank you so very much

Many People said that they went to Praise Tabernacle on thanksgiving day for the Thanksgiving Dinner they served, They all said what an awesome dinner and that the people at that church were so warm and loving and they want to come to our church. LOVE Speaks once again!!!!!!

A special thank you Veronica,  Barbara Sista, (Ginny Tom’s aunt) and Jan also the other Jan for the lovely things you donated and (Susan Jan’s daughter) for all the lovely shoes and sneakers and To Paul Jan’s brother- in – law for the beautiful leather all the jackets, hats scarfs and gloves and to all of you and your friends, coworkers and relatives Who donated clothing Etc, All went and they were so thankful .
