Many Blessings for the New Year!
We hope you had a Merry Christmas and that this is a blessed New Year for you! We want to say thank you for all of your prayers and donations in the year 2021. Charlie did quite a bit of traveling in Big Red, handing out crosses and sharing the word of God with people across the West Coast. We did 4 amazing children's events this year! Two were in Idaho, and two in Colorado, blessing 240 children with new school clothes! Despite the restrictions, God made a way, PTL!
We have some news to share with you. On October 12, our landlords came in to see Charlie and informed him that they were selling the building we have been located in for 27 years. Charlie was given the first option to buy, a staggering $5 million, or we had 60 days to move out. Charlie passed on the purchase since it was not affordable and started the hard work of moving. As of the writing of this newsletter, the new owners have given us until January 20" to finish moving. Unfortunately, Charlie does not currently have a new location for LHH. Donations have lessened since the outset of the pandemic and LHH doesn't have the finances to pay rent at a new warehouse. We are asking for your prayers that God brings in the finances and leads Charlie to an amazing new place where he can continue blessing God's people!
Update on Charlie... With the loss of our Riverside warehouse, Charlie is finally taking his Rolling Home, and hitting the road. Keep an eye out for him as he plans to travel extensively, meeting people and spreading God's word in between taking loads to Central California.
Update on the children's ministry...After Colorado, Charlie has decided to hang up his hat and no longer run the children's shopping ministry. His heart will no longer give him the physical and emotional strength to do the hard work of the events. We know that the right person is out there, ready to take over; and we are asking for your prayers that God opens their heart and shows them how important it is to take over and continue the ministry for many more years to come.
Update on the food ministry...Until God shows Charlie a new warehouse, his daughter has graciously offered to let us store big red at her business. We are excited about our continued and evolving relationship with Children's Hunger Fund, as they will work with Charlie so he can still take a monthly load to our outreach in Farmersville, CA. We know that with this amazing partnership, God will continue to bless the people in Central California.
Until Charlie finds a warehouse, our new address will be PO Box 365 Beaumont, CA 92223. When sending your donations, please make sure to write a little note, put it on the memo line, or use the little coupon we've included and let us know where to post your donations. We know that God will show you whether to help with a new warehouse, to keep Big Red up and running for the food ministry, or with a faith donation for our children's ministry!
