Extreme Shopper helping others - follow up report

A few weeks ago, I posted a call for help and I'm glad to report that with your help, we were able to bless the socks off this woman in her time of need. You donated food products, hair and beauty items, cleaning products, household items, clothes, and more. The items made their way to the Island where she is, and I recently received an email from her, expressing her gratitude, a portion of which I will share below, but first here is what was donated:

"OVERWHELMED!!! Kah-Mei, I don't know how else to put it.....I just could not believe that people "Who do not even know me" would go out of their way to do this.....You all will have no idea just the impact you had made until you get to heaven.....I'm sure of it.

I received the goods about 10 days normal settings I am quite prompt about getting back to people.......a combination of not having time to sit down and share my gratitude and not being able to find the words to express that impact this has all made...has unfortunately allowed me to procastinate.

This is Christ.....these are people who have Jesus in their hearts....I think it was around Acts 6....Kah-Mei, do you realize the bible clearly states that the christians were not in need as everyone contributed into the body of Christ.....Your folks giving....not only met desperate needs but also opened my eyes to what it says in the bible about letting resources flow to and from my hands....I apologize Kah-Mei, but between crying and just simply overwhelmed.....I cannot find the words to express my gratitude.

My four and a half year old son just looked at me surprised at why I was so surprised....."Jesus always wants to give us good gifts mommy".......

I'm probably not making very much sense or relaying the impact this has all made on me......but I want you and the others to know that I am very very gratefull for all that you had given us.....I pray God will both show you that as well I pray that the Lord will bless each and everyone of you a tenfold of all that you have given have no idea what your generousity has done.

Thankyou.....thankyou for everything Kah-Mei.....I apologize once again for taking so long to share w/ you just how gratefull I am.....I wish I could find the words to show you the impact it has made on me.

Blessings and thank you."

Although the email was addressed to me, she knew this was an effort that included others, so I wanted to pass on the thanks to you as well. We never know when one small act of kindness can help someone else in a bigger way than expected, and in the same vein, we never know when we might need to be the recipient of kindness. I want to thank you for participating and blessing this woman and thank you to Marianne, who let me know about this need in the first place, thank you for allowing us to help!
