THE STORY:

Jennifer Beasley-Depaepe wrote -

Night In A Car is a fundraiser event to support the Home Sweet Home Ministries in Bloomington Il. Our family will participate, along with others, in spending the night in our vehicle to simulate and bring awareness to the many unfortunate people in our own communities. The Home Sweet Home Shelter is a faith based organization that provides food, shelter, and services to hundreds each year. In 2016 alone, it has been reported that the Shelter has housed 413 individuals and served 108,000 meals! Last December, my Husband and I, began doing a bible study on The Great Commission. Through that time of reading and prayer, we felt God calling us to get more involved in serving and volunteering. We reached out to the Home Sweet Home Ministries and have been increasingly involved since. Our two teen daughters soon joined us and our younger two look forward to serving as soon as they are old enough. The Shelter offers so many wonderful services..all while spreading God's love and His word. Time spent with the staff and residents has been a true blessing for our family. Home Sweet Home Ministries is close to our hearts for many reasons, one of which hits extremely close to home. When first discussing the idea of volunteering with my husband, he opened up about a period of his past that had not previously been shared. He had spent some time living at a couple of the local Shelters during his early 20's. After much praying, we knew that it was going to be an important part of his story to return there with his family and serve. God has used this experience to redeem and heal past wounds that my husband has carried. We have watched as God has turned a painful memory into a beautiful testimony to share and help others. Please help us in our efforts to raise money for this wonderful organization that changes lives! We pray that God will continue to be glorified through all of their works. The King will reply, "I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me." Matthew 25:40
