You Are Never Too Young To Start Changing The World
“Man, oh man. So tonight I had the privilege of taking Eden to the Victor Valley Rescue Mission Donor Appreciation Banquet and it was such a wonderful night. Eden was listening to the testimony of some of the people who had gone through the (recovery) program and she was beaming, hearing about how Jesus had given those people a whole new life.
Near the end of the banquet a man got up and shared how the mission was going to be serving Thanksgiving dinner and how, for many, it would be the first step into a new life. We all prayed and I looked over and Eden was crying.
I asked her what was wrong and she said that she was happy that this Thanksgiving Jesus was going to change peoples’ lives. She asked if we could help at the mission on Thanksgiving, handing out food and telling people that Jesus loves them. We went and asked Bill Edwards, the director of the mission, and he so kindly got down on Eden’s level and said he would love to have her out to help.
Our kids are never too young to get involved in God’s work. So proud and so happy to see God working in my daughter’s heart!”
