Throughout the month of December, Redeemer collected many donations for Without Walls Ministry’s Birthday Party for Jesus held Christmas Day at The Citadel’s Johnson Hagood Stadium. We contributed shoeboxes of small gifts for the many children in attendance, hams that were served for the Christmas feast, and bicycles for needy children.
Without Walls Ministry is about “taking the love of Jesus outside the four walls of the church by meeting the needs of the community through physical and spiritual outreach. Ultimately, it is meeting needs and saving souls in a mission field right in our own backyard.”
Redeemer is privileged to participate in these events. Our own Thomas Szymanski said he’s enjoyed participating in past events because “there are a lot of opportunities for prayer, including people asking you to pray for them. There’s a lot of candid discussion, plenty of bonding, and a great sense of God’s presence in the work being done…a real love and passion expressed by those hosting and participating in the event.”
For the Redeemer folks who helped make this event happen, here’s a special thank-you letter from Pastor Gordon Cashwell of Without Walls Ministry.
All of us at Without Walls ministry just want to say thank you for your help with the bicycles for the Jesus Birthday Party. Please know that many smiles will be on the faces of the children because of your generous donation. THANK YOU very much! We thank you, for the great gift you gave us. It is well received and appreciated. Thank you!
