In Memory of Tommy Winters

We received a letter a couple of days ago that I thought would be well worth passing along to our supporters and ministry partners:

"My son and daughter-in-law, Michael and Lynn Winters of Evans, GA, told me your organization 'Kingdom Here' could use some help in the ministry to the homeless.

I am enclosing a check for $100.00 as a memorial gift in memory of my granson, Tommy Winters. He died on December 30, 2005 at the age of 19.

Hope this gift will help you a little bit in your ministry to the homeless.


Kathleen Winters"

What an incredible way to carry on the memory of Tommy by helping those in need! Kathleen's gift not only honors her grandson's life but will also provide 100 meals for men and women in downtown Augusta who otherwise would quite possible be hungry that day. Here's a big thanks to her.

It's also worth noting that Lynn, Tommy's sweet mother (who Kathleen mentions in her letter) has been one of KH's most committed supporters. Every other Tuesday night, without fail, Lynn drops off crackers, juice, clothes, shoes, hats, & WHATEVER else we might need for our Wednesday morning missions. Lynn doesn't do this for any sort of recognition. She does it because she believes Matthew 6:19-21:

"19Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and ruste destroy and where thieves break in and steal, 20but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

We are incredibly grateful for people like Kathleen & Lynn. They truly are the hands and feet of Jesus.

So, here's to Tommy!

Be Love!
