This week the collecting box came out and these guys that Neil has been blessing for years through a simple hello, a cup of tea and a laugh - blessed Neil.Neil is a volunteer that helps out at Faith House on a Monday night; I think he is an engineer by profession. His place of work have seconded him to be part of team to go to Bangladesh for a fortnight to help build homes and have said something along the lines that they will make any money that Neil raises.
Estelle who co-ordinates FH, made a suggestion last week to the guys who come along to the drop in that they might like to contribute. I must admit I raised an internal eyebrow as some of these guys own what they wear and little else; but a nice sentiment nevertheless.
This week the collecting box came out and these guys that Neil has been blessing for years through a simple hello, a cup of tea and a laugh - blessed Neil. Okay £8.94 wouldn't even cover the return tube fair to Heathrow - but there was an enormity in their giving. Literally some of these guys gave all that they had.
There was something else given that could be missed here - FH had given something to these men that they are not often given. The chance to bless through their giving.
