The ladies of Community Grace Brethren Church, Long Beach, assisted by Pastor Glen and Cora Sykes of our San Diego Grace Brethren Church, celebrated Christmas by giving to families who were affected by the recent
Southern California fires.
What started out with 5-6 ladies getting together to “Knit, Crochet & Sew for Fire Victims Relief” ended up with what you see in this picture — a van load of 42 Christmas gift bags of varying sizes filled with large blankets, baby blankets, kitchen towels, sweaters, hats, scarves, slippers, baby toys and more.
There were also multiple large and medium plastic bags filled with donated clothes, bedding, jackets, household items, toys, books and more all to be given to families in the San Diego area who lost all, or most, of their possessions in the recent fires.
Like the loaves of bread and fish, God multiplied our efforts and desire to help to provide much beyond our wildest dreams.
We serve an awesome God!
