Harris Teeter (super doubles)

Hey everyone,

I have made it a personal policy not to tell who my cash donations for Fed By Faith come from. I based this on Matthew 6:3 which says, "But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth." I want people to give because they want to, not so people will take notice of them.

All that to say, I am telling you who made the donation for this shopping trip. His name is Caleb and he goes to our church. The cool thing about Caleb is that he is "just" a kid! I don't know Caleb's exact age but he is definitely in the 6-8 year old range. He went to his mom and said he wanted to raise money for Fed By Faith. So that's exactly what he did. He earned this money that he donated! I was just so touched by this little boy who wanted to do something so badly for someone in need! So thank you to Caleb, and thank you to his mom and dad for instilling some good values in him. :)

With tears streaming down my face, I say, "Yay, Caleb." What a great testimony to how no matter your age, God can use you. This really touched my heart. I know God is smiling on Caleb for helping others. You got a lot of items for a little amount...I think God multiplied Caleb's money even more.
