Gerson and Betsy Tejeda prayed for a tangible way to show God’s love to the McAllen, Texas, community where they serve. The Lord planted a vision for a ministry to provide free gently used clothing for needy families. Soon after, they opened a clothes closet called The Sparrow’s Nest located at Taylor Community Center.
When “shoppers” ask why the shop is called The Sparrow’s Nest, Betsy and Gerson share the lesson of Matthew 6. If God cares enough about the birds to feed them, isn’t He concerned about whether or not we have enough to feed our families? The answer is yes!
- Those serving in the ministries of social work and counseling carry heavy responsibilities. Pray that they will take time to be renewed in their relationship with the Father as they share God’s love with others.
- Pray that more will be obedient to the call on their lives to serve in this cause. The ministry opportunities are many, but the workers are few.
- Thank God today for the many blessings you have in your life and how God has provided for you and your family.
