What a blessing week 5 has been. It all started last Monday when we received a package of food from The Davila Family & 240 Maintenance, LLC. via Stop & Shop’s Pea Pod program. It was such an unexpected blessing that our family truly rejoiced at the thought of another family (not from Rhode Island) would extend their love like that!
But that was the beginning…The Lind Family came through a day later and made a another donation of food that pushed us toward 40 meals.
Then a day later there was another knock on the door and it was USPS with packages from Amazon.com from the Morse Family! You could only imagine the amazing love we felt at the time. And amazingly, it was all non-perishables that we desperately needed for the meals we had already received. It was as if all these families were in contact with each other.
Than the Montondo Family came through on Friday with another donation that helped us surpass the 60 meal marker to 62 meals. Then they also volunteered to come and help do the work (they are local to RI). We were speechless. We all got out on a very hot and humid day and just blessed people. The children are the focus when we are out there. Their big hearts loving, their small hands greeting and drawing, and their big smiles warming hearts!!! When they share a lunch and say, “God Bless you” no one is ever unhappy, offended or upset. They feel genuine love by Angels. These families are blessed and they bless in return.
We need some families to step up this week and help get to 70 meals…what do you say? Can you share some love this week. Send your food donations to:
190 Broad Street
Providence, RI 02903
God bless you!
Well Brothers and Sisters – Week 4 is in the books!!
God has truly shown His love and hand. In four short weeks we have increased from 20 meals to 42 meals…and counting. We are matching our meals to the number of Likes that we get on Facebook. It is a lofty goal, but that’s not our problem…God has the charge of miracle-maker. We are His servants and lovers of our brothers and sisters.
In addition, to all the wonderful families that have joined us on Facebook this week EP has received donations from some families and businesses that have stepped out in Faith:
The Jesse and Stephanie Ortiz Family – Week 3
The Erik and Jaime Lind Family – Week 4
and our very 1st Corporate Sponsor:
240 Maintenance, LLC. (which is a construction company with offices in New York and Pennsylvania)
owned and operated by:
The Wilson and Brenda Davila Family
None all the families that have given The Elisha Project support have asked to be recognized. They simply moved on what God spoke in their hearts. On behalf of The Elisha Project and our family we thank you and pray that God rains a quadruple portion of blessings on your families!!!
And we thank Him for it is already done!!!
We are amazed at the number of people that are starting to inquire about what we are doing. Someone asked last week how we fund this project. I explained that at this point and for the foreseeable future it will be my family that funds this. We felt a call to do something more than just pray for these people.
We are expecting that the amazing people of this world will step forward family by family and do what they can. At this point our cost per meal is almost $2.00 – and that is a bargain these days.
There is an immense opportunity here to not only serve these people food but to serve some compassion, love and hope.
At The Elisha Project we believe that darkness is only the absence of light…we wish to be light!!!
God bless you!!!
