Received the card from: Pastor Ken

Where did you bless someone: Los Arcos restaurant in Lone Tree, Colo.

The Blessing: My sister took me out to lunch to just celebrate some family time together. As we were dining, another family came into the restaurant to eat, and as they passed our table I noticed one of the family members was using bilateral gaiting crutches to walk. I gave them the $50 and a card and told them about this blessing experience. It was a wonderful experience, thank you for providing this opportunity Mountainview; Our God is so good!

Where did you bless someone: Our Neighborhood

The Blessing: Gave our $50 to an older couple who has been like family to me since I was born. They were missionaries their whole life and they still serve others and bring people into their home. They are moving next month and are worried about the costs. So we left the $50 in an envelope on their front door.

Where did you bless someone: Ukraine

The Blessing: We gave 1000 hryvnia (about $40) to a couple yesterday to pay for a month’s care in the hospice for the man’s mother. We are only able to do this because of God’s generosity as demonstrated through His followers, like people at Mountainview!

Who did you get the card from: Kelsey Stockbridge

The Blessing: My daughter, Kelsey and her husband visited your church the day the cards/money were passed out.  They came to our home for dinner and we had just shared that my ride to see family and attend a business meeting in Arizona had just fallen through and I didn’t have the funds to fly.  Kelsey reached into her purse and said “I can help, I can help”.  With the help of your generous “Blessed to be Blessed” dollars, I was able to find a cheap flight and visit with my family and attend my business conference.  My husband is a 1/4 time Pastor at a small mission church in Bailey.

Who did you get the card from: Pastor Ken Hensley

The Blessing: Shortly after receiving our $50 from the church, I had surgery and was unable to get out and give it away.  Today (4/3/15), my husband, Jeff, took the money and bought gift cards to restaurants within a few blocks of Sky Ridge Hospital.  He then went to the hospital and gave away the gift cards to a few employees and a few people in the surgery waiting room.  Some people were skeptical and wouldn’t accept the card.  Those who accepted were so appreciative of the gesture.

Who did you get the card from: Lisa Schuster

The Blessing: Lisa Schuster, on behalf of Mountainview Christian Church, sent us a donation in March. It was a good time for us, as we have added a day care to our program in Haiti that enables parents/employees to have their children in a safe place while they work. We also recently added a computer training program for the adults/employees. The donation is being used to help offset expenses. Thank you so much!
