September 2021 Update

Hi Friends!

Exciting news – 6 girls packed 51 layette bundles on Saturday!!  Added to the progress of that accomplishment, was the fact that the week before we had a nearly new 23 x 30 metal shed delivered, paid for by interested people.  Several of the young people helped us move all the totes and boxes to the new LLG shed, so this packing went so much smoother and faster than any other time, and we got many more done in  a shorter period of time.  Another added help was a 12 foot cafeteria style table we’d found at a yard sale just that morning for just $60, as you see in the attached photo.  Amaris was able to watch on a camera.

We did as many bundles as we had Bibles for…. so we have used up the 120 Bibles we purchased exactly 3 months ago! Time to buy some more!!

Boxes 2021:  Because of a couple of large donations last month, we have been able to finish all the purchasing for 150 boxes to be sent through Samaritan’s Purse (or a missionary, if someone contacts us before we arrange to send them off).  In addition, a young single man missionary in the mountains of Mexico contacted us wanting about 30 boxes to deliver to a poor village he ministers to occasionally.  We hope to get those 30+ done mid-Oct, and then do the 150 in shifts as we have help available, before the Nov. 15 deadline.  It is so rewarding to see this coming together, all to the glory of God.  We pray over these bundles and boxes while packing and after we finish, that each one they go to will be influenced for eternity, and then they will influence someone else.  If you can’t go, and you can’t give, then please PRAY!  Transportation for getting these boxes where they need to go, is a big expense and logistic to work out still.

I believe God has sent this ministry as a lifeline to me and I pray that it will be a Lifeline to many others.  Thank you Jesus for what you are going to do. 

Thank you so much for considering Lifeline Gifts!  We appreciate every dollar and try to make each one count! We couldn’t do this without you! To Jesus all the glory for every life touched.

Blessings,

July 2021 Update

Just a quick update from Ezra here! Amaris’s health has been very poor for the last few weeks, and she spent almost 2 weeks in the hospital. 🙁 She is home now, and making some small improvements, but is still very weak.

On the bright side, Lifeline Gifts has never been busier! We had a “packing night” where 42 layette bundles were prepared this month, plus 20 gifts for moms. Many of those have already been delivered! I took a whole carload of layette bundles to a couple of different locations the other day, Mom just delivered a few this morning, and more will be going out tomorrow! We now distribute to 10 Centers within a 100 mile radius!

We are also praising the Lord that in the last two months generous folks have donated more than $4,000 for buying supplies, and we have found some super deals on reduced goods that we need for the boxes and layettes. We’ve also received some donations of diapers, bottles, etc. for the layette bundles!

Thank you for your giving and for your prayers for this ministry. May God bless you!

June 2021 Update

Hello friends,

I wanted to write and give an update about Lifeline gifts!

As many of you know, I have a chronic illness and am still going through treatment for Lyme.  Unfortunately we have not seen the results that we had hoped for and I had become very discouraged. The Lord really convicted me and gave me this verse of song — “Rescue the perishing, duty demands it; Strength for thy labor the Lord will provide. Back to the narrow way, patiently win them; tell the poor wanderer a Savior has died.” It really helped get my perspective back in the right place! Whenever I’m starting to get discouraged or I’m feeling really bad, I try to think about Lifeline gifts. I would be in the depths of despair if I didn’t have something to work towards. I don’t have much energy so it takes me a long time to get anything done, but I have been doing a lot of thinking and planning.

So that brings me to my challenge for you. Would you prayerfully consider telling someone about Lifeline Gifts? Please help spread the word to a friend, your church, a business, or even to your neighbor. Attached is an advertisement that you can print and can give out.

I would love to be able to send out 400 boxes this year, and also make many more layette bundles. I only have $2,000 right now which is enough to fund about 75 boxes. I am setting a goal of $20,000. I know that seems to be a big figure but I believe that God can provide. We can use much more than that but this will be a great start.

We’re excited to send around 20 backpacks (boxes for children) to Mexico this summer!  We sent 20 layette bundles around Christmas to a ministry that does sidewalk counseling in front of abortion clinics. We just heard from them today — “I have only 5 left!!!!! We have given them away to the moms who changed their minds this year!  The Lord gave us a bus (size of one that’s like 25 seats) – but seats are out and it’s getting remodeled to look like an office inside with table for moms to lay on for an ultrasound — I’m having shelves added and was going to contact you in a month to get more!! The moms loved them as they un-layered them!!  Van should be done in about a month!” Praise the Lord!  (We’re planning to send more layette bundles to them soon!)

Also my Mom has been diligently calling around to different pregnancy centers and we are trying to find more ministries that minister to women considering abortion. We will be sending 6 layettes to our local pregnancy center. 

Jesus said in Matthew 28, “GO into all the world and preach the gospel.” That is His command for all of us. For me right now it means 10 minutes a day of computer work and many hours of thinking and planning. But for you it might be giving financially, actually going, praying, or giving of your time.   If we get enough regular support we can proceed with becoming a non-profit, which would really help us with tax exemptions and getting supplies cheaper.

If you can’t give financially, I totally understand, but please pray for Lifeline gifts! I believe God has sent this ministry as a lifeline to me and I pray that it will be a Lifeline to many others. Thank you Jesus for what you are going to do. We glorify your name. Amen.

Thank you so much for considering Lifeline Gifts!  We appreciate every dollar and try to make each one count! We couldn’t do this without you!

December 2020 Update

Dear Friends,
     I wanted to send out a little update about Lifeline Gifts! We have had some very generous donations over this sale season that have allowed me to get some really good deals and start stocking up for 200 more boxes and 50 layette bundles. We have been receiving packages in the mail every day, and it has been very exciting! I always really enjoy getting packages in the mail and seeing all the different things in them.
     The Lord has been so faithful in providing the funds. Each time I have made a big purchase and get low on funds, the Lord has provided more funds so that we can continue. I have been very blessed by that, and I get so excited every time I see another donation come in!
     Lifeline Gifts has been such a blessing to me personally in this season of my life. My health limitations keep me from being able to be a part of other ministries as I have been in the past. Knowing that I am able to bring joy to others and make an impact on their lives gives me hope. I have been learning how to pace myself as I work on Lifeline Gifts, and I usually do computer work for about 15 minutes at a time. It is tiring, but so fulfilling, and I can’t say enough how thankful I am for this ministry.
     We are working on partnering with more pro-life organizations and clinics. Around Thanksgiving, all the girl cousins got together and packed 26 layette bundles which you can see here in this video.
     Ezra has also been working really hard on the website! You can visit it here to see the new pages. It’s looking more professional and has more information!
     Thank you for partnering with us, as we continue to look for more ways to bring funds in and for people to possibly commit long term! We really appreciate your generous donations and your support of Lifeline Gifts. We couldn’t do it without you!
     Please be in prayer for Lifeline Gifts and the people who are being touched by it! Two hundred boxes have gone to Samaritan’s Purse for this Christmas season. Pray for each of the recipients, that God would use the boxes for good in their lives and bring them and their communities to a saving faith in Jesus Christ!

     We are thankful for all the blessings God has provided and are thankful that He has called you to participate in this work!

Blessings,

November 2020 Update

Hello Friends,

I started Lifeline Gifts about a year ago to help needy children of all ages around the world. I have a chronic illness that leaves me unable to perform normal daily tasks. I’m mostly confined to my bed or recliner, but I was seeking something that I could do, something for people and for God. So, I started gathering the needed funds. I was able to order all the supplies and, with the help of many willing hands, we have prepared 200 boxes that are ready to be sent out.

Lifeline Gifts packs boxes or backpacks filled with toys, hygiene supplies, school supplies, arts and crafts, and clothes and a New Testament. They are then sent around the world by Operation Christmas Child (Samaritan’s Purse) or similar organizations to children who are in very needy situations, such as war, famine, natural disasters, or those who have physical needs. I am also looking for more places where they can use these boxes or layette bundles.

During the recent 40 Days for Life campaign, I would have loved to have taken an active part, but since I am not able, I instead posted a prayer challenge on my blog to encourage people to pray for the campaign. I am very passionate about ending abortion and saving babies, and I want to do anything that I can to help. Recently the Lord has laid on my heart the idea of putting together small mom/baby gifts to be given out to moms who have chosen to save their babies.

We at Lifeline Gifts are hoping that there would be a way for us to partner with you, whether short or long term. I wondered if you would prayerfully consider sending any of the supplies mentioned above or a donation of money. We can’t do this without you! Our goal for 2021 is to pack as many boxes or layette bundles as we can. We are currently considering the possibility of turning Lifeline Gifts into an official non-profit organization, and we want our ministry outreach to touch as many lives as possible. We have organized a board and team to help me out with all that is involved with this undertaking.

You can donate online any time at www.lifelinegifts.com To donate supplies, or via check, please contact me for more details.

Visit our website to watch a video documenting the 200 Lifeline Gifts boxes that have already been filled.

I look forward to working with you and I hope you have a blessed holiday season. Thank you for your consideration of giving to Lifeline Gifts and for helping this ministry plan.

Blessings,
