Try to imagine checking in to a one-star motel on December 24th with no family, no friends, no tree, no gifts, etc.
Then try to imagine a knock at the door and the visitor saying, “We just want to let you know that God loves you. Here’s a small gift to brighten your day.”
That is exactly what we did as we hand-delivered gifts bags to the residents of the Reedsburg Homeless Shelters and Motels on the afternoon of December 24th.
Each bag contained a gift card to Quick Trip, homemade holiday treats, a copy of the New Testament (bookmarked to Luke 2), and a personal note expressing our love.
