Life being transformed!
17th October 2018
A gentleman came into the Foodbank for help- he had been homeless for 12 years, but due to a heart condition had recently been given a flat. The flat was unfurnished, so we asked Acts 435 donors to help buy him some basic furniture. When he received their gift , he asked to send this message:
"I am extremely grateful, I really don’t know what to say. You’ve made an old man really happy. My life is so different now it feels like I’m living in a palace instead of my tent. I’ve met the nicest people I’ve ever met through church and the Foodbank and everyone has bent over backwards to help me. They’ve done so much for me. I love The Light Church, it was the first time I’ve been in a church for forty years and it’s totally different to what I thought. The people are so warm and it feels like I have a family which I’ve not had for a long time.
I’ve seen such answers to prayers. I was really panicking about my heart condition which was the reason why I came ‘inside’ from being homeless for 12 years. Now I’ve been told I don’t have a heart condition, it’s the result of a previous injury and I just need an operation. It was God’s way of getting me inside and getting me to church and alpha and to love coming. Nothing rammed down your throat and you learn about God at your own pace."
