Today I brought lunch to a homeless man at the park who also happened to be an alcoholic.  I talked to him about Jesus and prayed with him.  I also gave him info on where to find help at my church.

Scott -

What was the name of the book you read that you were describing on the radio.  I heard you talk about it while I was driving and by the time I got home, I have forgotten the name of it.

Sometimes I think of MAD Mondays in the big things that we do, but my father-in-law was recently at a funeral for an employee who worked for him 20+ years ago.  One of his other employees came up and thanked him for something he did every day that changed his life and how he manages his employees now.  That something? He always said "good morning" to everyone working for him.  The young man said it put him in a good frame of mind to start his days.  Two words, remembered for 20+ years.  That's making a difference.

As a flight attendant, I see many homeless people and buy them food instead of giving them money, so I won't further their addditions.  Recently in Chicago one homeless man eating out of a corner trash receptacle, drove me into prayer.  No one in America should have to do that. I usually carry Christian tracts to hand out, but I was out of them that day. I'm a custom seamstress and have been sewing since I was nine years old.  Next time I'm in Chicago want to deliver a drawstring "sportsteam bag filled with healthy snacks, to him.  My prayer is that God will put him into my path once again so that I may witness to him, share the love of God with him, and give him this special gift from my heart. Nothing is impossible with God (even in such a huge metropolis such as Chicago.  Next time I get a trip from my airline, I will act on faith and go prepared with the gift for him.  Glory to God!

Same Kind of Different as Me is one of my all time favorite books.  I received it for Christmas about 3 years ago.  I googled Ron Hall and Denver Moore and was able to listen to audio of their appearances on various radio shows that were aired shortly after the release of the book. Also, I just checked Amazon and you will find some companion books, one looks like a DVD w/participant guide.....might check that out.

And a special note to Kelli....before you buy, check your public library!! At our small-town library, books by Christian authors are specially marked to make them easy to find.  And if the book I want is not at my local library, I can get it from anywhere in the state through interlibrary loan.

Today, I cooked lunch for 23 high school students.  Last year, I started cooking lunch on Mondays for 9 of my daughter's friends.  This year, we opened up the door to several high school students that haven't gotten plugged into a youth group.  The kids love coming and I love sharing the kindness of the Lord with them.  It is always neat having "Make a Difference Monday" playing in the background.  Smile  Thanks for all you guys do!

As a flight attendant I see many homeless people.  Last week in Chicago saw a man eating out of a sidewalk receptacle.  No one in America should have to do that.  He drove me to tears and prayer.  Lord use me for your glory!  I make custom drawstring bags in sports team logo.  Nextg time in Chicago, I will take a couple of these bags filled with healthy snacks to hand out to those hungry people.  God help me to find that particular man once again to share the good news of Jesus and His great love.  Glory to God

I work at a senior housing facility, and last week one of the residents there had a very sudden and severe stroke.   She is 89 yo, but a little spitfire!  full of energy and so warm and funny.
She is not expected to survive through tonight.  There is another resident who was very close to her, they were always together.
I took time this afternoon to take her up to the hospital so that she could say good-bye to her good friend.   The family was so glad to see her, and Rita actually opened her eyes when her friend took her hand and spoke to her.......it was so precious.   This other resident had been a little anxious about going up to see her, but afterwards she was so happy that she did that, and was feeling at peace with letting her friend go Home, and said that she would see her again soon.

I went to my eye doctor this morning to return my brand new pair of broken glasses so they could be replaced for a fee. There was a young man there who was listening to my dilemma and said, "man and I thought I was the only one who has problems."  So I enquired about his problems outside in front of the building and he told me that he has less than a year to live because he was recently diagnosed with heart pnuemonia.  He said that at any moment he could drop dead.

All-in-all I took time out of this day to pray for him after I and my mother gave him words of enocuragement about Jesus Christ and how He can do all but fail.  So I'm asking you at KLove to pray for this man because I honestly don't know if I'll ever see him again.

Today, I have perhaps made the biggest difference in my own life by just enjoying and worshiping our Creator.

However, I did speak with a woman at school who has Asperger's syndrome. I didn't really do anything special other than sit with her and talk. She is the sweetest girl and she showed me her drawings she'd done for class.

Later, another guy came up to me while I was facebooking and I stopped that very addictive behavior to give him my complete attention until he was done talking, which was maybe 7 minutes.

He told me about a pond near me which I later hiked nearby.

I just got back from a mission trip in Jamaica.We as a group helped at 3 Christian based shools. And where we stay the roads are nothing but pot holes and we filled potholes and did some repairs on the campus.We put up a basketball goal for the teens and swing set and b-ball goal for the little ones.We also put up new guttering to collect rain water for everyday use. If it doesn't rain much they don't even have water for bathing.God loves Jamaica!!!

Wed is "Good Neighbor Day" but it is also the day for Jr. High Small Groups Chapel at Calvin Christian School in Escondido.  I'm a small groups leader for 8th grade boys and it can be fun to get that age to interact and opening share the love of Christ.  Tomorrow we will be handing out roses to unsuspecting folks...just a small way to spread the beauty of God's love for all people.  Because they are Jr. High boys, I always tie in a snack to the scripture and/or lesson....I'm thinking Chocolate Roses might be fun....Part of my message is that MAD is not just for Mondays; trying to get them to always look for that opportunity to make a difference.

We moved out of our apartment complex and are praying that when our lease is up God will send us back.  Our friend, Dani has two young children and a husband who can't work due to a back condition.  We found a resource that provides two boxes of food a week for $20 a month.  Each week Russ and I share our food boxes Dani and her family.  The last time we did that she looked through the box and said: "Praise Jesus! We have enough food to feed our kids for the next three days."  We get to go back each week to see the people we love and miss and are blessed by the food God lets us bring.  Dani also shares the food with other neighbors. I can't do enough for Him.

I would like to know the name of the book Scott mentioned on Monday evening?  It was about a husband/wife in Texas, I believe, who volunteered at a shelter.  Their lives were changed by a man they met there.
Thank You

Our Lord has endlessly used a bookmark He inspired me to design, that has an image of a lighthouse over a dark stormy sea, with message inviting people to consider God wants to be their best friend, security, and helper through His gift of reconciliation in Jesus Christ.  Most everyone receives it when offered, as is perceived less threatening than a gospel tract, since everyone uses bookmarks. "Can I leave you a bookmark with an inspirational message?"--so easy. Are likely to be saved in remembered place for a "rainy day".  Has been a great icebreaker for  conversations over spiritual truth too.

I'd like to think I can make a difference.  I am currently trying to set up a ministry to supply medical missionaries with supplies.  I heard Scott and Kelli speaking about "Make a Difference Monday" as I was driving to Sacramento from my home in Chester, CA.  I am on my way to a conference with one of the largest hospital chains in the US to see if this ministry, Medical Materiel Ministries (MMM), can become an affiliate with this chain. And, yes, there is a reason that materiel is spelled that way.  Becoming an affiliate will allow MMM to purchase supplies at very low prices.  Much lower than most other hospitals can buy supplies, even.  

We have an agreement with Cardinal Health, a large healthcare supply distributor, who will allow us to buy from a warehouse in Charlotte, NC.   They will, in turn, deliver the supplies directly to World Medical Missions (WMM) in Boone, NC.  WMM has the infrastructure to get the supplies to any of their 14 hospitals, which are located in the poorest parts of the world.

I hope that KLOVE and all those who read this will pray that Medical Materiel Ministries can help, for instance, those in Haiti who still haven't fully recovered from the earthquake, and are dealing with the aftermath of a hurricane, now.

For a little over a year I have been visiting a lady in a nursing home who has no family that visits her. I help out in a local community resource center. My husband and I sponsor a child in South Africa a few ministries that support justice, serving the poor, and freedom. I just got back from a medical mission trip to Ethiopia. It was fantastic and motivates me even more to serve locally. One more thing- I take my grandchildren to church, as their parents are not attenders.

I was in line at the Starbuck's drive through today....being impatient because the two black SUV's ahead took forever to pay.  They are overdoing the Welcome to Starbuck's friendly banter, I tought.    Turns out the first car paid for the coffee for the care behind and the one ahead of me bought mine.  Yup...I bought the coffee for the woman behind me.   It made me smile and I wonder how long that chain reaction continued this AM.  I hope and pray whoever started the chain was a K-love listener. Next time I will buy the coffee and give the recipient the K-love station I listen on line and at 91.1 in RI.  God Bless you.  K2

I good friend of mine is a senior in high school was telling me today how he is really stressed out about picking out colleges.
I sent him a text message including some of my favorite Bible verses telling him not to give up and to know that God is always there.
He sent me back a thank you and I just couldn't stop smiling knowing that God worked through me to help reassure him that God is always there.
