Bike

Generous Locals Gift a Bike!

“Casey” is a young man who is a newer client of Love INC. We had given him a bike to get back and forth to work, for which he was extremely grateful.

His bike ended up needing some minor repairs, so he took it to the bicycle shop here in Newberg to see what they could do for him on his limited budget.

They pointed out that the bike he had really wasn't the best for his body type, and suggested he get a different bike.

When he told the store that he had gotten the bike from Love INC, they gave him a new bike free of charge! They even generously fixed up the used bike and donated it back to the bike ministry.

“If among you, one of your brothers should become poor, in any of your towns within your land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart or shut your hand against your poor brother, but you shall open your hand to him and lend him sufficient for his need, whatever it may be.” - Deuteronomy 15:7–8

After many obstacles, “James” is on his way to putting his life back together again.

Just out of rehab for drug abuse, James has a five-month-old baby boy who he has not yet been able to meet. His biggest goal right now is to get to a place in his life where he can be a good father.

His son gives him hope that he can turn his life around.

When James came to Love INC he was hoping we could help him get a bike, but he had no idea there were many other things we could do for him.

He was able to pick up his bike that same day and he also walked out of our office with vouchers for non-food pantry items, kitchen items, laundry services, and even diapers for his son provided by Christians like you.

While James seeks employment and a place to live, his heart overflows with thanks to God for being his provider, and to the many donors who make it possible for his needs to be met during this time of transition in his life!

“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” - Proverbs 13:12
