Message from the Executive Director

We all know Jesus commanded us to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. Yet, have we ever considered what Jesus’ kind of love looks like? The kind of love that Jesus modeled included sacrifice, great sacrifice, even death. It included being uncomfortable, non-conformist and a bit radical. I look at the love of Christ being poured out through Love INC - Heartland volunteers and I see sacrifice (not unto death), but true sacrificial love. I see the woman who lost everything and was moved to our area with the clothes on her back. I see her fist full of coins she offered in return for all the volunteers did to clothe her, fill her house with household items and help her where ever they could. I see the people who have volunteered week after week for ten years insuring that the ministry of Love INC - Heartland is flourishing. This allows people in our Churches to get out and be the hands and feet of Christ spreading His love in our community. I see love in action. I see you. Thank you for all you do to bring true love to others. I thank God for you and the opportunities He gives all of us.

-Terri Harris

 

The Princess & The Bicycle

Through the generosity of our community we were able to host a spring Bike Giveaway.  Volunteers joined with loving members at Christ Lutheran Church in Maple Plain to bless children from our communities. Love INC - Heartland partnered with West Hennepin Police who offered a bike safety rodeo immediately after the event. Our neighbors in need (registered through the Love INC Clearing House) were invited to come and be blessed. One young family approached the registration desk.  The mother apologized for her daughter’s appearance.  
The young girl insisted on dressing herself that day.  She was wearing a beautiful purple princess outfit. Her mother went on to say that it was difficult to get her to change into tennis shoes and out of her purple plastic high heels. As the princess came to the ocean of bikes, volunteers came to help find a good fit. God had placed a perfect purple princess bike there for her that day.

 

if you would like to see God doing miracles, volunteer with Love INC - Heartland and be blessed as you are part of the blessing.
