We took about $50 of groceries to the Thanksgiving service at UALC on Thursday (nicest church service of the year with the best hymns). But I kept aside a bag of personal care items I’ve been buying—shampoo, sanitary napkins, deodorant, bar soap, toothpaste, tooth brushes, liquid hand soap. These are for Tammy Jewell’s ministry, “God’s Hygiene Help Center,” which offers basic hygiene care to people who have lost their dignity because they simply can’t afford everyday items. Some are for children, some for out of work men and women looking for jobs, some for the elderly and homeless.
Jewell is a former victim of human trafficking who came to know Jesus. Now she reaches out to addicts and trafficking victims. When she shares Jesus, she also offers some small material aid.
