This lo has pictures from when we took the church youth into Manchester city centre to distribute care packages to the homeless or vulnerably housed Big Issue sellers on a cold December evening.
This eastern European lady had a whole stack of unsold magazines at 5.30pm whereas her English counterparts had just one or two magazines left. There was a strong Anti Eastern European immigrant feeling in the natives at that time and she was really struggling. My son touched by her story gave her the £20 note he had taken with him to buy himself something on the way home.
She wept with gratitude and praised God calling for him to bless our family I was humbled by her attitude and my son's giving when I had not done so.
On our return home my son's lizard had laid her first clutch of eggs.The baby lizards when hatched he sold to the pet shop for £10 each. In the next 18 months my son sold over 100 lizards to the pet shop and became pretty rich on it, he who was so free with his giving was blessed so that he has more than enough to have for himself and to continue to give to all good causes.
I made this using my CFK November kit, I made the embellishments from a left over disposable coffee cup which we used on the day. All the journalling is hidden behind the photos.
