My wife Helen and I
worked the garage sale this year for the first time and it was a very
rewarding experience for us. Our job was to welcome and assist those who
came to shop for an item. The story I would like to share is about a
little girl probably 7-8 who came with her mom. Her mom also had a small
baby and they needed furniture for their apartment. As we walked
through the parking spaces shopping the little girl was very excited
about all the furniture possibilities and she also kept telling her mom
she wanted her own children's bible. I told her we would get her a kid's
bible to take home, but later found out there were none available.
Since her words kept ringing in my ears, "mommy I want my own bible" I
told her we would see that she got her bible. We purchased and mailed a
bible to her and now we are praying that God will use His Word and this
little girl to bring her family to Him. Also I wanted to thank Sheri and
Steve for the great job organizing this event, but I also want to thank
John Thompson who help coordinate deliveries to the homes. John's
enthusiasm and friendly personality was great to work with and as I told
him he truly is the "Face of Grace Baptist." Jerry Mayes

Grace Family, Thank you so much for the tremendous generosity of spirit, servant hood, and giving we experienced this last weekend at the Free Garage Sale! It was a great day! We had an abundant supply of furniture and appliances to give to our guests. Several were able to share their stories of how Christ has saved and transformed their lives. We we were able to encourage about 120 guest families and we praise God for the 8 people who made decisions to follow Christ!
