I just had to share with you an event we held today at the Immel Plaza in Abbotsford, B.C., our little church held an oil change for single mother’s in our community. The program was simple really, we had single Mother’s book in advance to get the oil changed in their car. As an added bonus we had a crew also clean the inside of the car, vacuumed, ArmorAll for polishing up the leather & dash and such, along with cleaning all the windows too. Here are a couple picture’s I snapped this morning.



Making a contribution in your community goes along way, whether it be an oil change or just a card, you can make a huge impact on someone’s life with a small random act of kindness. This applies to online as well, you are what makes the difference in people’s lives, be it positive or negative, we all make an impact on some level. What is your impact…positive or negative?

You don’t have to go to church to hold these events, build community, build trust by loving your neighbor. Many Blessings.

    What a great idea. In this egoist times we are now facing, everyone has to remember to help others who need help. This can start in your neighborhood, helping older people with shopping etc. God bless you!

      Thanks Megan, we hired a new Pastor April 1st and he has had the most amazing impact, today he thanked me for hiring him, he says we have the greatest people who just want to serve. It’s a joy to be a part of this little church for the past 13 years, it’s fun too.
