Love ought to show itself in deeds over and above words. ~St Ignatius de Loyola
Dear LOL families and friends,
Christ is Risen, Alleluia, Blessed Easter to all!!!
We had a very successful 2018 Easter event. We have served the Risen Christ for Easter by feeding the Hungry. We delivered 1,050 lunch bags to our brothers and sisters in Downtown LA, Baptist Homeless Shelter in Buena Park, West Covina and Pomona.
Our 2018 Easter Event collection was $1,630.00. We received bottled drinks from Reyes Coke Cola, cookies, energy bars and chips from LOL donors.
As always, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for your generosity and love for the poor! My Easter message to all, please let us continue our mission to serve Christ through our less fortunate brethren. Be reminded that whatever we do for the poor, we do it for HIM!!! Our care and love for the poor unites us with Christ.
2017 Christmas Rollover money ($3,343.60) plus 2018 Easter Collection ($1,630.00) is $4,973.60.
Our total expenses for this event is $1,781.71.
Balance is $3,191.89—>this is now our rollover money for 2018 Christmas Event.
Great gratitude and appreciations for allowing us to continue our mission to feed the hungry and spread the good news. Let us share and spread the blessings and love to the poor. For all new donors and volunteers, WELCOME and THANK YOU. I hope to see you again in our future events and please share your experience to others.
Please continue to pray for our sick friends and families. We will continue to dedicate our events to them. Let us also pray for JaKyshia Blandon, who joined us last 2017 Christmas Event in Downtown, LA. One of her lasting act of love was feeding the hungry. She has joined our Creator last February 2018.
Kindly share our blog to your families and friends and invite them to join us. The pictures of the events had been posted. Everyone was beautiful! Love was among us!
