Matthew 25:40 says “…whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”  You and I have the amazing privilege of showing the love of Jesus when we practically get involved in big and small ways in the lives of those who need it the most.  Here at Life 101.9, we have so enjoyed watching friends like you provide for the needs of people who are homeless in Eastern Iowa during Life 101.9’s Share the Love.

Ready for the final totals? As of this morning, a total of $16,120 has been given to homeless shelters around Eastern Iowa!  This total will provide 1,075 nights of warm beds, hot meals and other necessities.  What an amazing finish!  Thank you for your generosity.

Over the last few weeks, we have been able to hear many stories of lives that have been impacted because of your gifts.  One real life example of life change involved a woman who was forced to leave her home with her children because of an unsafe situation with her husband.  Imagine the host of emotions that she must have been feeling as she found herself homeless.  However, because of the generosity of friends like you a shelter in Eastern Iowa was able to find temporary shelter for her and her children.  They also supported them financially as she finished her education at a local community college.  She just recently found a job and will now be able to provide for her family moving forward!

It’s amazing to think about the lives that will be touched right here in Eastern Iowa because of your gifts to Life 101.9’s Share The Love.  Thank you for collaborating with us to show the love of Jesus in this practical way, giving hope to those who need it the most.

In Christ,
Matt Deane
