6 Weeks to go ’til Christmas Event!!

Love ought to show itself in deeds over and above words. ~St Ignatius de Loyola

Let us NOT love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth….1John 3:18.

Dear LOL families and friends.

I bring great news and blessings to you all!!!  two weeks ago, our precious granddaughter, Midori, was born.  Kiko, Rhonda, Tony and I are so happy and blessed to welcome her into our lives. We hope and pray that when she is old enough she can join LOL in our mission.  We will make sure that we instill in her the love of the poor, to be caring and compassionate.  We finally met our precious Midori last week.  She is simply a beautiful blessing!  It was an awesome feeling. We are so blessed.

Our 2016 Christmas Events is fast approaching, just 6 weeks away. I need your support in making this happen.  We are serving 1000 brethren in downtown LA and 150 at the Winter Shelter in St Christopher Church.  For those who volunteered to bake cupcakes, prepare the care bags, drive to Downtown and distribute, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

Please spread and share the good news of serving Christ through our less fortunate brethren.  Share our blog to your families, friends and co-workers.  I know that there are so many, who want to serve Christ, please tell them about LOL and what we do. Let us show them how LOL loves the poor!!!
