She looked up at me and smiled and said,… Read more »

Another first

Drenda Thomas   December 12, 2012   No Comments on Another first

Each bag contained a homemade bunny, plastic egg with an encouraging scripture inside, an invitation to church, a number to call for prayer and chocolate candy.   Below are pictures of the bunnies. The first 40 were fun to make. The last 100+….not so much…. Read more »

March 13th & 20th

On both of these nights we went to the strip clubs and took gift bags containing candles, an encouraging scripture, an invitation to church, a number to call for prayer and chocolate candy.

Tuesday Night (2/21/12)

This is Valentine’s month, and we are taking gift bags to the clubs every week instead of once a month for the next 8 weeks. The gift bags for February all contain the same thing:  stuffed animal, candy, encouraging scripture, and a number to call for prayer. It was a really fun night. Here are highlights: The college team was excited to… Read more »
