Over 30 students and parents got together Tuesday (Dec 9) to pack sandwiches to bring to downtown Toronto for people who are experiencing homelessness. This is the second sandwich run Middle School has taken on this year. This time, our Junior School families contributed a large amount of winter accessories for the mission team to distribute. The team was divided into 5 smaller teams and walked around downtown Toronto, covering about 4 sq. km of area. The team talked to the friends on the street and expressed their genuine care to them. Many friends were happy to see the winter accessories. Our prayer is these friends will experience God’s love and know that someone cares.
At the end of the run, the team gathered at Church of the Holy Trinity and paid tribute at the Toronto Homeless Memorial.
Some of the sharing from the team, “Friends on the street are very friendly and grateful. Sometimes even more so than some of us who have a lot in life.”, “They are not greedy. They did not ask for things and we need to ask them, “Do you need gloves? Do you need hats?””
This Christmas, may you experience God’s love to you.
