It was a light night tonight – just 59 households, representing 189 individuals. But it was a special evening just the same. A few clients came with ashes on their faces, but most did not. However, Pastor Stella “brought” Ash Wednesday to the Food Pantry! (In case you didn’t know, Stella recently transformed the old library room into a warm, inviting prayer room, complete with comfortable chairs and other furniture, low lighting, wall hangings and soothing colors.) Tonight, Stella was in the prayer room, offering the imposition of ashes and prayers to all who wanted. And several wanted! It was great. Thanks so much Pastor for your involvement, support and encouragement – it means a lot!
Blessings to you all. Please pray for all our clients.
