A team of 16 RBC volunteers led by Pastor Wayne Johnson spent Christmas Eve delivering gifts, food, clothes, cookies and stockings (while singing carols) to a number of large, underprivileged families from our “adopted” school. After their scheduled deliveries were complete, there were many presents left over. They asked that the Lord show them where to go and He did, in a big way! He lead them to an apartment complex nearby where they went from building to building. When they heard children, they knocked. Every time the door opened, they were met with smiles and grateful parents! Adults wept and children shrieked and giggled as they pulled out toys of all shapes and sizes. The children’s’ reactions were priceless! The love of the Lord Jesus Christ was so clearly communicated to these families.
Thanks to all who followed the leading of the Spirit and gave gifts, cookies, prayers, gift cards and love.
