God controls all of the events in the world. I say that because over the last three years, Sarah's Toybox has grown by leaps and bounds. Three years ago, Sarah's Toybox distributed stuff to 38 families. Two years, it was 100 bags and last year was nearly 300 blessing bags. Our goal this year, 1,200 blessing bags.
As for God's direction-I truly believe God has led us to where we could spread hope the most. Two years ago, we traveled around Farrell and Sharon and Bruce delivered some to places we ran out of time to see. Last year, we began our day on Ravine Place in the projects. We went to three different housing projects. This year, if we have enough stuff, we will be going to two more places that we have not been able to go to in order to bless those in need.
Also, God has guided some new individuals to become involved. He has used dreams as of old to guide a new believer to help us. He has also brought a man who is a minister in Farrell to become involved. Lee has experience with Spanish-speakers so we can maybe expand to there or they can help us spread hope.
