...... it was awesome taking her the stuff. I was truly over-whelmed with the generosity of whoever all it was - and on such short notice. I'll confess - I had decided it wasn't going to happen and I was just going to try and put everything on my credit card. After that night (and sorry I misunderstood and kept y'all waiting) God kept bringing to mind "ye of little faith" - except it was "me of little faith." So anyway, I was so excited when I saw everything. Nothing like an answered prayer sitting on your kitchen counter. I took her the stuff Christmas Eve - she got teary-eyed (again). I met more of the family, and the kids were running around (very excited too). I gave her a "fish" card - turns out she lives about 5 minutes from the new Columbia County campus - probably not a coincidence. So you can keep that in your prayers - I would love for all of them to come. Anyway, thank you for your help. It's neat to be so obviously reminded of how good God is and how much He cares for all of us.

The Need:My husband and I have a friend who is a very hard worker, positive person to be around, yet, it is very difficult for him to make ends meet for his growing family. He was having a hard time making it to work, because his car kept breaking down. I asked my husband what this family needed most, he laughed and said, "A car." So, I posted it on Link'd up and waited.
The Answer:A few days went by and I began to think that this 'need' was too much to ask. The next day, (NO LIE) I got a call from a TrueNorther who was PUMPED to give this family her car! She said that her parents had given HER the car 9 months ago to sell or give to her kids, but something inside her told her to save the car. Then she read the Link'd Up email about the NEED and she said the Holy Spirit told her right then that that was why she was saving the car. WOW!
The Surprise:My husband and I picked up the car, took it to the man's workplace and had him do touch up paint work on it all day. The "customer" showed up at lunch, thanked him for doing a fabulous job, told him that she was giving the car to someone as a present and that 'someone' was HIM. He could not believe it. He kept walking around and around the car saying, "Oh man." When he drove it home that night, his wife wouldn' believe him :).
In conclusion, this family came to church last Sunday for the first time in many years. They said TrueNorth is not a church, but a congregation. They felt accepted and happy to be there.Thanks to Link'd Up and a giving heart, this family has been extremely blessed and all credit goes to Jesus! Lift Him UP!

The following was written by Freddy Petersen, Founder of the Shareware Project:
Do you remember the time you brought home your first computer? If you were as excited as I was, you can understand a little of why we enjoy helping with this great cause. We are here to give other people that same feeling of empowerment and quality of life that computer technology affords us.
Even though the information age has grown and many people are technologically savvy, there are still a lot of people without personal computers and computer skills to use them. There are many parents who cannot afford computers. Some parents and their children lack the understanding and ability to send an email, create a Word document, surf the internet and millions of other common tasks that can be done on a computer. This puts them at a disadvantage in our society. We will provide them with the computers needed to build those skills.
It is our mission to provide personal computers to those that are missing out due to lack of finances or lack of technology savvy. Our focus is to provide computers and computer skills to disadvantaged seniors, families, children, and teens.
Some senior citizens have a slight technology knowledge gap and we will endeavor to get the computers in their homes and provide basic training for them, by doing this we will help bridge that knowledge gap.
By providing parents with small children computers to learn from home while caring for their children, we will encourage these young people to stay in school and eventually go to college or get a job. If you’re ready to help, please see our list of current needs:

Just from these two examples we should appreciate even more the clean air we breath and lofty standard of living we have here versus the standard of living in other places in the world.
If you are interested knowing how you can meet and become a friend, host family, or interact in a variety of ways with these International students in our area, then send Link'd Up and email at LinkdUp@truenorthchurch.com . These students desire so much to interact with Americans so they can improve their language skills, so all of us are qualified to participate with them. This would also be a way of ministering to them and showing them the Love of Christ which may be as foreign to them as our clean air that we take for granted.
