Spring Newsletter Update

Mar 28, 2022


 

This past quarter a very nice 2004 Ford Explorer was donated to Helping Hands Healing Hearts. We were able to pass that on to a Sweet Magnolia gal who needed a vehicle. What a great blessing it was for that young lady. We love being a resource for other community service organizations in Bonner County. We are all in this together.

 

Our favorite provision story is that of a bed. A client called needing a full-size bed for a small apartment. We normally get queen beds in, so we posted on Sandpoint Yard Sale Facebook page and got a response that evening. The donor said she had been looking for someone to give the bed to but hadn’t found anyone. God was holding the bed just for our client! It was such a nice bed, and the client was thrilled especially since she had been homeless for eight months and just got an apartment.

Our Story

The former Love INC (In the Name of Christ) officially closed its doors in January of 2017. Having been housed in the back of the Sandpoint Church of God for the prior three years, the remaining assets of the ministry were “bequeathed” to SCOG. Hearing strong expressions from the community for the need of a similar ministry to fill the void, the SCOG Church Council decided to “resurrect” Love INC under a new name and renewed focus. After a “listening tour” of three months with numerous pastors and agency leaders throughout the community, “Helping Hands – Healing Hearts” was chosen as the name that would reflect the purpose and mission of the new ministry. Believing that every need is essentially a heart issue, the primary focus of “QH” would be healing hearts through helping hands. This reflects Jesus’ teaching to “use worldly wealth to make friends for eternity” (paraphrase of Luke 16:9). And so, after several months of reorganizing and preparation – in partnership with many other churches and agencies – “Helping Hands – Healing Hearts” officially opened on May 9, 2017. We celebrate this joint ministry that is helping people in need, and in the process, making friends for eternity! Thank you for joining us in celebrating God’s work through us all together!

Our Mission

Helping Hands Healing Hearts is a Christ-centered joint ministry of Sandpoint area churches and aims to be God’s vessel to lend a helping hand by providing assistance for material needs and in healing hearts by providing spiritual and emotional support to the needy in our community.
