Stories From JumpStart!

What a blessing to visit Mr. Mike Egli. He knocked on my door when I was 8. We had just moved to Springfield Oregon when my dad got out of prison. Mr. Egli invited us to go toSunday School. There is where I accepted Jesus. They picked me up for church, along with others from Calvary Temple for the next 10 years. I am who I am because he listened to God and knocked on doors, drove the bus and took me to Sunday School. I am Thankful and forever grateful.

Steve and were shopping at Walmart getting ready for the Philippines and ran into Eddie. Eddie went to JumpStart years ago. He came up to me and let me know he is graduating from college this summer! This is a kid I talked with during visitations and he told me he would never go to college, no one would help him, and I need to be careful so I don't get "shanked" in the neighborhood Now he came up and said thanks for helping him and he was all smiles. God is so good and I am so proud of Eddie!

Free Garage Sale-free hot dogs - free Cheetos-lots of smiles-lots of thank yous = a blessed evening. What a honor it is to serve a God who loves us. We had fun giving clothes, shoes and toys away. After a 12 shift Steve came and BBQ 80 hot dogs to feed site 3 where we have Sidewalk Sunday School. We love these families and are humbled to give them the items they need. Thank you to all who have donated.

As successful garage sale it was!
