Freely You Have Received; Freely Give

At Open Door Mission we rely on the generosity of others. This is especially true at the Timberlake Outreach Center. The Outreach Centers, we have 3, meet the needs of our guests, as well as those in the community. We serve those living poverty and the working poor. We provide a “shop for yourself” pantry, where each family can go through the aisles to choose what they want. Evelyn, who works at the Timberlake Outreach Center captured this touching moment. No bill, prayer.

Once you have received the Grace of God in your life you cannot keep quiet. The power of the love of God works through us cleaning our heart from everything that kept us from understanding that we are His masterpiece, once we understand that we are free to share and love others, just as HE says to us.

He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with your entire mind; and, “Love your neighbor as yourself”.   Luke 10:27

Today I witnessed the love of God in action and this picture says it all. Here is a picture of one of our RBL students, Buck, and a family who came to the Timberlake Outreach Center for the very first time.
