This year’s annual fundraiser was by far the most spoken about banquet our ministry has put on. We feel the heart of it was our children speaking for themselves and declaring what Heart to Heart has done for them. This is what you “our supporters” have done for them; taken them off the streets and given them a family with food and shelter. But more than that, you have truly given them hope for their future. Many of our children are in their teens and experiencing hopes of a secondary education or developing a trade which is marketable. Some simply want to give back to others like themselves. who have suffered much yet gained so much. These children value relationships. not things .and it puts my heart in awe. Didn’t the Lord say, “ And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. Love suffers long and is kind; loves does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up, does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails…..” It is here I want to “thank you” for loving. This is a great commandment, one which blesses unmeasurably.
