LAHFH Weekly Volunteer Update April 12, 2019

Through the Lenten season I am going to post 40 positive acts of kindness.  
  • Send someone a check-in text each day just to say, “I’m thinking of you/ praying for you.”  “Heart,” “praise hands” and/or “prayer hands” emojis are encouraged, but optional.☺
  • Share with a friend a book that has been particularly meaningful to you.
  • Give up “indifference.”
  • Surprise someone today with a sincere, unexpected compliment.
  • Arrange your schedule so that you commit to participate in regular meal preparation for homeless persons.
  • . Ask a new colleague to lunc
  • Ask God to change hardened hearts—including your own.
  • Write a letter — an actual letter on paper — to a friend.
  • Read one chapter of the book of James to start each weekday.  Repeat for the six weeks of Lent.
  • Put away devices and diversions for a set amount of time each day for praying and listening to God.  
Happy Easter to all our fantastic volunteers, donors and shoppers!
