Recipient: Devereaux Center   Initiative: Bags of Love Initiative 2020

We became aware of the Devereax Center for the homeless quite a few years ago. We have supported them over the years with clothing and food donations. So when the bags of love came up we automatically thought of them.

Inside the top of each sleeping bag we included a New Testament in the new European version with one of the little leaflets for ThisIsYourBible.com. They do have access to computers in the center and of course many with smart phones. I asked the center folks before I did that and their response was very positive. Inside the front of each Bible I wrote “We remember you in our prayers, your local Christadelphians”.

The manager said for some this would be their first ever new bag in which the zipper worked and everything. They were jazzed.
