October 2020
Cranston Ecclesia
Cranston, Rhode Island
Recipient: Providence Rescue Mission   Initiative: Bags of Love Initiative 2020

We delivered 20 sleeping bags to the Providence Rescue Mission, a shelter that makes it their goal to share the gospel of Jesus Christ to every unhoused person that comes through their doors.

The shelter is only ten minutes from our ecclesial hall so we went on aSunday morning, just in time to see them turning over their main room from a sleeping area with rows of neatly lined-up mats on the floor to a seating area for preaching with a podium at the front. It was great to see an organization committed to both the physical and spiritual needs of the community. We had our first snowfall on October 30, so we are grateful to be able to provide the sleeping bags on behalf of the Cranston ecclesia and The Garden.

Thanks for the opportunity!

With love in Christ,
Ben
