Man it’s been eventful here over the past couple of months…………
The rain kept coming in through the roof an’ windows, the ‘phones just won’t stop ringing, the emails keep a coming and then the BBC turn up!
Can’t be bad y’know for a little outfit from the Black Country.
We’ve had a young couple sleeping in a tent locally that we’ve been helping and supporting for about three weeks now.
Please will anyone, who has a heart to, pray that they’re found somewhere to live asap.
And still we keep on feeding and clothing local people in crisis……………
Walsall and Dudley distribution centres are reporting that they’re feeding more people, especially families. For instance I’ve had a text message from Church @ Junction 10, Walsall; in just three sessions, totalling just 9 hours, they’ve fed 88adults & 52 children. That’s 1400 meal equivalents in 9 hours!
Without you’re continued support we couldn’t do any of this.
I’ve just had a lady brought to the Storehouse by a Children’s Centre for clothing and bedding, thank goodness you’ve all been so generous. We managed to find everything she needed with the exception of boys shoes, I know boys can be tough on their footwear.
Because of your generosity we were also able to provide basic school uniforms which means Mum can think about decent shoes for the children in September.
Mum was so grateful and wanted to know how bcfb was started, when we told her about the God-given vision back in 2002 and starting on my dining-room table she started to praise and thank God for His provision
You missed a great time on Sunday; Blue Watch at Brierley Hill Fire Station held a charity car wash and split the proceeds between The Fire Fighters Charity and ourselves. click here for more info.
Kelvin’s been in from The Storehouse and even though we had 1.75tons of food donated by 300 church youth from across the Dudley borough there are a few items we’re short of, if you wouldn’t mind sharing the burden and asking your community to donate just one item each.
Tinned RICE PUDDING
Small Tinned MEAT
UHT (longlife) MILK
and if you wouldn’t mind; JAM as a treat
Adult & Children’s TOOTHPASTE
Don’t forget we’re closing The Storehouse for a break from this Friday, 3rd August, and will reopen on Monday 13th August.
If you need anything please email; email@example.com as someone has offered to check that address daily, all other addresses & ‘phones will be unmanned.
