“Only by giving are you able to receive more than you already have.” – Jim Rohn
Life Members came together to participate in a Life on Life event in Rockdale, Texas for an organization called A Place of Hope Pregnancy Resource Center. Life Members of Team Kerux, in connection with their New Year’s Eve Masquerade Ball held on December 31, 2016, came together and demonstrated how to Have Fun and Make a Difference by giving to those in need.
While closing out 2016 and celebrating the entrance of 2017, Life Members were invited to bring various baby supplies to be donated during a special presentation that evening. Those in attendance at the Ball not only came in formal attire with masks, but came with an attitude to serve and bear gifts for A Place of Hope.
The special presentation was held after the catered dinner when Pam Nolen, Director for A Place of Hope, was introduced to come forward and receive the donation. Pam was so grateful and full of praise for an organization like Life that would bring people together at a time like New Year’s Eve to celebrate and give to those less fortunate. On Sunday, January 1st, Pam contacted the Life on Life organizers with more accolades and thanks for all that had been given.
Here is the inventory list of the items donated:
- 2,179 diapers, which means 91 women were blessed with a pack of 24 diapers.
- 52 packs of wipes
- 13 sets of toiletries
- 8 bath goodies
- 15 bottles
- 39 bibs
- 37 washcloths
- 9 receiving blankets
- 10 burp cloths
- Car seat canopy
- 7 bottle cleaners
- One quilt
- One bathtub
- One furry blanket
The Team Kerux Life Members are a wonderful group of men and women who are convinced that what they do really matters. They believe, just as the Woodward’s and Brady’s have taught for over two decades, that service always precedes success.
Here are some comments from Life Members who participated in the event:
“Great people helping a great cause. That’s what Life is all about.” – Jerry Johnson (Life Member)
“One of the things that really drew me to Life was the goodness and kindness of the people involved. It was so refreshing to spend a wholesome evening, having fun and at the same time making an impact by giving to and celebrating women who are all too often shamed and overlooked. I love that this community dares to be different and in turn makes such a big difference in people’s lives in so many ways.” – Marianna Gomez (Life Member)
“It’s awesome to see the stewardship demonstrated by Team Kerux. The Lord has blessed us, and we want to be a blessing to others by serving them, and God gets all of the glory. He asked, ‘Whom shall I send?’ He sent Team Kerux. Miguel and I love being part of Life because of their love for Jesus.” – Annette Batista (Life Member)
“The 2017 New Years Life on Life was a tremendous opportunity to help other single family needs in Rockdale, Texas.” – Phillip Sanchez (Life Member)
“Life on Life- helping those who need help the most with the gifts and blessings that the Lord has given us.” – Zair Sanchez (Life Member)
“Irma and I consider it a genuine privilege to have been included in the Life on Life Initiative directed toward helping the pregnancy resource center in Rockdale, Texas. We know it will definitely make a difference and demonstrate Life’s commitment to impact communities everywhere.” – Lupe Gamez (Life Member)
“What a privilege it is for Bernice and I to be associated with such an amazing group of business men and women committed to serving other people. Our team believes that 2017 will be a year of abundance, and decided to put that belief into action by celebrating the New Year in connection with a Life on Life initiative. We are excited and blessed to be a part of Life.” – Clif Gibson (Life Member)
“Team Kerux went all out in celebrating the entrance of 2017, with our masquerade ball and Life on Life Initiative. Adam and I could not be more excited at this point in our lives than to be in community with people that really understand how to work, serve, and have fun. It was also inspiring to hear the recipient of our giving, Pam from A Place for Hope, discuss how they incentivized education and training for new moms by rewarding them with ‘Mommy Dollars’ to exchange for more supplies. 2017 is off to a great start.” – Mallory Gonzales, Fort Worth, Texas
“Kenny and I are honored to be in community with a group of servant leaders who continually place the well-being of others ahead of themselves. The 2017 New Year’s celebration was a landmark event as we are poised to change the lives of so many people. Life on Life has once again shown its relevance in providing outreach to a needy world by allowing our Teams to serve as they see a need.” – Lindsay Cleveland, Caldwell, Texas
Thank you to all of the Life Members from Team Kerux, under the leadership of Clif and Bernice Gibson, who participated in this Life on Life event! Your service truly made a difference for mothers who are in need.
