CHRIST IS RISEN!!

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!

Dear LOL families and friends,

I hope everyone had a good summer. It’s time for our Christmas Feed the Homeless events again and I’m looking forward to seeing you all and meeting new friends.

Thank you Lord for allowing us to serve you through our less fortunate brethren. Congratulations and more power to us for keeping our mission stronger than ever. We continue to grow and provide one decent meal twice a year because of your generosity and kindness. What a blessing to all!!!

To our new friends, thank you for your support and we hope and pray that you will continue to serve our brethren in Christ. 

Apologies for sending this email late as I was trying to find a place to serve our less fortunate brethren for the Winter Shelter-Feed the Homeless.

Thank you note 2017 Easter

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

Hello everyone!!

Last Easter week, we fed 1,030 homeless brethren. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all LOL families, friends and new volunteers!!!

Our Easter events were successful even though there were only a few who came last Saturday to distribute. We miss you and hope you can join us in our next events. I am so grateful for the leadership of Larry and Renee Willis. They continue to lead our friends in Downtown LA to serve the poor by feeding them of the food we prepared and praying with the people they met. Our food feeds the physical hunger but the evangelization and spreading of the good news feed on the spiritual needs of the people we encounter during our mission. God bless and let us continue to serve Him.

For this event, we received $1,060.00 and 480 Soda from Coca Cola. I do not have our expenses yet. Linda and I have not met since our distribution. I will keep you posted as soon as we gather all the receipts.

God bless you all for your generosity (financial, your valuable time, and prayers) and sharing your Love of God to the poor!

Here are our next events for 2017 Christmas Feed the Homeless Events, please mark these dates in your calendar and join us in serving the Lord on His birthday!

Friday, 01Dec2017 @ 2:30pm: preparation of the care boxes

Saturday, 02Dec2017 @ 7:00am: distribution in Downtown LA

Friday, 08Dec2017 @6pm: Serve dinner at the Winter Shelter at St Christopher Church
