Making a child's day

The first three Saturdays of each month our awesome volunteers serve so beautifully as the homeless and needy come to our ministry center for help with food, hygiene items and clothes. The homeless also come to take showers and to have their laundry washed.

We also see children. They are all precious, and most are from single mother homes. There are two children we see each month who are always smiling, and they love Rick and Martha Denney. Rick and Martha are faithful volunteers and leaders at LIA. They always take up time with the children.

Rick found out this one young boy likes basketball. However, the child didn't have a basketball. Rick told the child that he would get him a basketball. Rick delivered on his promise today. The smile on the child’s face was priceless.

Click here for a link to the video showing Rick surprising the child with the basketball.
Thank you, Bro. Rick, for showing this precious child the love of Jesus.

This video epitomizes how all of our volunteers serve at LIA. Lives are being changed for the glory of God, because of people giving of their time to show the love of Jesus to the "least of these."
