Please pray for this amazing event! For all in the Baton Rouge area, please consider getting involved in the event announced in this email from my friend, and a genuine servant of Christ, Clayton Hays:
Gardere Giveaway Outreach – Almost Here Again!
If you were a part of last year’s Gardere Giveaway Outreach, the picture above brings back some great memories!
Last May about 250 folks from at least 12 churches teamed up to show the love of the Lord to over 1,200 people who live in the Gardere Area. We provided clothing, household items, medical evaluations, food, caring conversations, and the Good News of God’s provision for us all through Jesus Christ!
It was such a time of joy and encouragement as the believers in the Gardere churches were so excited for other believers to come help them reach out. All the folks from the churches had fun getting to know each other and many people in the surrounding neighborhood were touched to see that others cared about them. In addition, people became involved in the Gardere churches. The Hispanic church doubled in size within four weeks of the outreach!
This year the Gardere Giveaway is planned for Saturday May 1st at the same BREC park on Gardere Lane. At this stage we are focused on gathering and organizing donations of clothing, household items, small furniture, and toys.
Here are some ways you can be involved in this outreach:
1. Help organize items and put clothes on hangers Monday’s in April (5PM to 8 PM).
2. Donate items.
3. Show a DVD about this outreach at your church to invite others to become involved.
4. Collect donated items at your church and haul them to our storage facility.
5. Help put up the tents at the BREC park on Thursday April 29th.
6. Help move all donated items to the BREC park on Friday April 30th.
7. Volunteer at the outreach May 1st.
If the Lord is moving you to be involved, please let me know by responding to this email or call my cell phone (225-803-4566).
Please pray that the Lord will touch many people in significant ways through this outreach!
Thank you for your prayers!
