"Sandy" Relief Post 22

"Sandy" Relief

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

Dear Friends,

Christmas is always wonderful; and for me personally, the best Christmas is written about in the messages below of a loving work given because of a loving savior. May Jesus always be lifted up before men by our lives, no matter what the date, so that all men will be drawn unto him.

Below is a message from Matt Recker, Heritage Baptist Church, New York City, NY; and Brother Farrell Osborne of Grace Baptist Hour in North Carolina.
"Hello, Bro. Jan,
Greetings. I want to thank you for your faithfulness and labor of love to keep in touch with those of us in New York City who are still working through the aftermath of Sandy. Long after news media gives much coverage and pretty much moves on to the next big news story, and overlooks those still struggling to get into their new homes, with their finances, or to return to anything close to normalcy, you have continued to keep in contact with us and to work to help us in New York City.

Thank you for recently connecting us with a dear brother, Evangelist Farrell Osborne, who had a trailer full of supplies, toys, clothes, and even some used furniture to give to those in Sandy. I appreciate your work to put us in touch with each other. Our plan was to meet at 12 noon in Far Rockaway and to distribute the items, and it worked without a glitch. The people of Far Rockaway who are still in a very difficult circumstance, gladly received us, the supplies, Bibles, tracts, and our prayers. (I am attaching a few pictures of our outreach. There are more pictures at our Heritage Baptist Church Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151345666855569.524253.237485640568&type=1)

We appreciate so much how God uses you in a multi-faceted way to bring the hope of the Gospel to those recovering from times of devastation. May God continue to prosper, provide, and produce great fruit through your labor of love! Sincerely in Christ, Matthew Recker"
 
Brother Farrell who gathered and brought the supplies, also sent this message.

"Dear Brother Jan, We made our trip to New York the other day. We met with Brother Matt, and unloaded a truck of goods to his people. Thank you for your help in making the contact for us. We still have some things in our warehouse; I would be glad to take back there or to someone else who needs it...Merry Christmas to you and yours. Brother Farrell. Grace Baptist Hour"
