When we went to the Lost Sheep Ministry’s Under the Bridge on Valentine’s Day we had no idea the effect it would have on every single member of the LFFD team.
We each came back with our hearts and eyes wide open. While under the bridge we saw first hand the need for jackets, socks and shoes…Something we take for granted everyday. We sit there and look at our shoes trying to decide which ones to wear… when here someone is asking for one pair of shoes so they are not walking barefoot on the rocks.
The Lost Sheep Ministry has a food truck set up so these men and women could get a hot fresh meal, a dental and medical outreach truck and even a shower truck. Seeing all of this put everything we had going on in our lives on hold. None of that mattered and after many prayers and discussions at work, the girls and guys at LFFD want to do more.
We have plans to go downtown each month and take items that are in need to the Lost Sheep Ministry. We are sharing this because we want to extend this opportunity to each and every one of you. Spring is coming which means it will be time to clean out the closet… we are going to have a box set up here at Lisa Foster Floral Design and if you have any gently used clothing items or shoes you are needing to get rid of please bring it by here. (See list below of what is needed). We want to help these men and women who are just down on their luck. We want to show them love and compassion. God has laid this on our hearts and we want to help in anyway we can!
