Gracious Grace Pointe!

A few weeks ago, we stuffed footprints bags with Grace Pointe youth group. We had a great time! I love going to different churches and having them participate in this amazing ministry! I also enjoy seeing children participate in ministry work! What a great lesson to teach young people! I still remember ministry projects I did at church as a youth. These projects can leave lasting impressions on the lives participating and also the lives that receive these bags. Grace Pointe has been such a big supporter of Footprints! Thank you so much to Christy Cronier for coordinating this bag stuffing and also to the youth minister, Keith for allowing us to share this ministry with the Grace Pointe Youth! A big thank you to each of the youth who participated, many lives will be touched by your generous hearts. Below is a letter I received today from a parent who received one of the bags your group made.

Dear Footprints Ministry,
I want you to know that the little gift left by my daughter's bed means so much to me. Thank you so much! My daughter just had eye surgery and is 2 months old. When I received the gift packet I started to read the New testament that was in there and it made me see thing in a better way! I just wanted to tell you thank you! You are very sweet to do this for families in the NICU! God Bless!
Thanks again Grace Pointe for touching the lives of so many in the NICU! Here are a few pics from our bag stuffing.
