The love of God is shown while they are still sinners. And we are the servants who show this love to them. Through the "Hope for the Community" Association I got some clothing. Unlike other times, we have not announced in the city about this opportunity to receive clothing but we have asked those who come to our worship service to tell their friends. Surprisingly, a woman came and brought us a little cheese. I tried to convince her that we received nothing in return, but without any results. I understand that she wanted to redeem her recipient dignity of the things I have given.
