EXCERPTS FROM NO, NOT ME!
When an unexpected visitor knocked at my home on April 7, 1993, I didn’t know that opening the door would usher in a new chapter of my life. This chapter would be full of heartache and grief and would introduce challenges beyond my imagination.
A feeling of dread arose as I saw standing on the other side of the threshold a uniformed officer, Detective Bradshaw, who had been assigned to my husband’s missing-persons case.
He wasted no time. “Hello, Mrs. Jennings. I need to inform you that we found your husband’s car.”
An immediate rush of fear pierced my heart. This would be bad news, regardless of what I had spent the last month hoping for. I wanted to hear that they had found my husband—not just his car.
Our experience during the first outreach under Canton Bridge was so powerful that it gave me a sense of purpose and fulfillment, knowing I had obeyed God’s commands. I immediately started asking more people to donate money for a Christmas blanket for the homeless. God continued to transform my hardened heart and replace it with genuine love and care for the homeless.
Having heard the stories and blessings from our Thanksgiving outreach, more people from the church decided to get involved with this budding ministry. We decided to invite a Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS) student to preach during the Christmas outreach. After the sermon, the rest of us would distribute blankets and gospel tracts the church had provided. With joyful spirits and love for the Lord, we loaded up our cars the Sunday before Christmas and once again caravanned to the Canton Bridge. It felt as if we were going to a birthday party, bearing gifts.
