Fresh Start Borders
This week I have been thinking about the work we do with homeless people. When we first started, a group of Christians from all the churches in Selkirk and the Valleys, as Fresh Start Borders we thought it would only exist for a few months and make about 100 Starter Packs. Years later, we are nearing the 2,000th pack. I have been amazed how the work has developed as the need continues in the Scottish Borders. (Unfortunately).
During the church service today I was reminded that God blesses us and our work, when we do His will. How true with Fresh Start, as we could not have existed this long without His help and blessing. Every time we needed items for the packs, God has provided everything through the generosity of His people.
I have said it before…how humble I felt when a seven year-old thanked me for a toaster. We have been given so much from God and richly blessed, while others struggle greatly. Hopefully, we will continue to help the needy and show them the love of Jesus.
What is Jesus doing?– Jesus is doing great things through Fresh Start!
