The True Meaning of Easter

Yesterday, Chris and two of her boys went down to see the new trailer… It won’t be long before we can tow it “home.”

Every year, we’re challenged to explain the true meaning of Easter to people with their backs up against the wall, to people who sense little hope.

Thank you to everyone who gave a better trailer to this homeless mother and her family. Hope dawns.

 

 

Compassionate Gifts Bought This Trailer for Chris and Her Family

We’re thankful to announce that the compassionate gifts of many people made it possible to buy this beautiful 31′ X 8′ trailer for Chris, her four children, and dad. It’s bright, cheerful, and has enough space for everyone to have their own bed!

In case you missed it, Chris is giving her old trailer to a man who has been homeless and sleeping in the woods for three years.

We’ve learned that compassion is a miracle that gives hope to people every day.

Today is Palm Sunday.  Christ said, “Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves.” John 14:11, NIV

Our thanks again to those who gave of themselves through monetary gifts, prayer, and encouragement to make this happen. And here’s a plug for Fife RV and Mike, our salesperson, who made it possible! http://www.fifervcenter.com/

A punny inspiration!

A work of art by Isaiah. This could have been made just for me. It’s funny, thoughtful, and applicable to exactly where I am in life.

Thanks Isaiah!

Nearly Had a Fire!

Chris nearly had a fire in her trailer this week. It was her daughter’s turn to sleep on the floor and her stuffed bunny got too close to the heater. Its ears and face were singed off while everyone slept!

Two of them cram on a tiny sofa, one sleeps in a hammock, two sleep on the floor, and grandpa needs to sleep on the only bed. We are thankful they didn’t have a fire– all at the same time, their situation is more urgent.

Guess what Chris is going to do with her old trailer? She’s giving it to a homeless man. It’s the perfect size for one person and he already has a safe place to park it!
