This Weeks scripture

Ruth 1:16-18

New International Version (NIV)

Naomi and Ruth 16 But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. 17 Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the LORD deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.” 18 When Naomi realized that Ruth was determined to go with her, she stopped urging her.

The homeless men and women there need warm jackets, now that the weather is getting cool in the evenings and they sleep on the streets. They also could use some of your old luggage – rolling style luggage and backpacks. This type of luggage, are things that the homeless can easily take with them. Remember they take all that they own with them on their backs or following behind them in a pull type piece of luggage. If you have these items, please bring them to the church office and we will get them from there to JUSTA Center. Thanks so much.
