It was a great initiative on the part of the church board to bring about such a fantastic way of giving to the next person, sowing a seed into a fellow church member’s life and into the kingdom of God. Members of the church were asked to donate any item of clothing, personal effect and property to the church to create a mall where our members could shop for free.
Bright and early, the members of the Hands of Grace (a volunteer department of Grace House Family church) gathered to organize and build a make shift mall. Ideas were swapped around as everyone tried to bring together the idea and design of our mall. Within a few hours the mall was set up and we were ready to go. An hour of teaching from our man of God pastor Chuks Ozabor energized us for the task we were to face.
After the service, we returned to our make shift mall, excited and waited in anticipation. The weather held although bad weather had been predicted. We prayed that the heavens would hold and not drop of rain would ruin our day. And by the power of God, it did not rain although the day had begun chilly and overcast.
The mall was declared opened and floods of people poured into our mall. The donations had been generous and so there was so much to be ‘shopped’.
There were a lot of pleased faces that were caught on camera.
By the grace of God we look to make this an annual event. An event to be looked forward to and a chance to impart the word and a gift into a fellow church members lives.
