"Last evening, Dec. 17, my wife and I set out to give away our Christmas Jar. We prayed before leaving that we would find the receiver of our gift.

"As we drove downtown, we were hoping to give it to a homeless family in great need. We decided to drive around in the area where those who are homeless are usually gathered.

"We parked near a homeless shelter, and after we waited for about 20 minutes an older car drove up and parked near the entrance.

"I went to the driver's window and started a conversation with the occupants. I found out they were a homeless family of four waiting for the shelter to open, so they could secure a place to stay for the night; it was going to be a cold night.

"My wife and I presented them with our Christmas Jar. They were so happy and appreciative! I will never forget that joyous feeling of being able to help that familiy in their time of need.

"We wished them a Merry Christmas and left seeing their hands waving and faces smiling. God bless them and all of you, and may you all have a happy and fruitful new year.

"By the way, next year's Christmas Jar is already receiving funds."
