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,
Why do I love doing LOL……there are simply so many reasons why but the most important one is knowing that our organization has and continues to make a difference and in the lives of the homeless, inspires the donors and volunteers. We all experienced spiritual growth, blessings and grace as we do our events each year. This is one very inspiring example of we do in LOL……
Last week I received an email from one of our volunteers, Tenisha McDonald, a member of the Chosen Vessel of the Second Baptist Church in Monrovia, where Larry and Renee are the Deacon and Deaconess of this church. Having joined and experienced our 2016 LOL Easter, Teneshia and other young adult volunteers were so touched by what we did; they took the initiative to appeal to their church members to donate so they can buy toiletries for the homeless! They delivered more than 1000 packs of toiletries that we will distribute on December 3rd in Downtown LA. I was so touched and ecstatic to see and feel the love for poor by our LOL families and friends. Our LOL mission is not only to reach out to the poor but also to reach out to everyone, especially the young ones, to feel the Love of Jesus Christ! We are in the right track with that! God bless all our LOL families and friends!
