When Pastor Venetia Wilson of Lighthouse Temple Community Church COGIC learned about the tiny homes being built directly behind her church, she wanted to do something that would be a blessing to the residents.
Upon further inquiries, the Wilson discovered that the organization responsible for the tiny homes village were planning to cook and serve Thanksgiving dinner at the tiny homes site for all of its residents, but they were in need of an additional $200.00 to help cover the costs.
Upon further discussion with Light House Temple’s Home and Foreign Mission and Outreach Coordinator Evangelist Gloria Durant, it was agreed upon that the church would bless the tiny homes residents with the additional funds needed for the event.
Last Fri., Nov. 13, Pastor Venetia Wilson and Outreach Coordinator Evangelist Gloria Durant, along with other members of the congregation, met with Julia Griffith, the tiny homes arbitrator and internal affair coordinator, where Evangelist Durant, on behalf of the church, presented her with a $200 gift certificate along with a number of hygiene items and personal tote bags.
“We are the Light House in the community and we just want to do the Christian thing,” said Pastor Wilson said. “It was truly a blessing to be a blessing to others.”
Light House Temple would like to thank Sister Elise Carey of www.imyoungandempowered.org in Las Vegas Nevada for her generous donation towards this effort.
