Through the collaboration of hundreds of Jesus loving people and a leadership that is sold out to Jesus every hour of every day, the I Cared Enough Thanksgiving Outreach has been happening for 18 years. Can you believe that?! 18 years of sacrifice and faith rides of trusting and waiting on God and Him showing off and providing everything needed every single time. That’s who God is.
Daniel and Gwen Cason are the founders of Daniel Cason Ministries which is responsible for the I Cared Enough Thanksgiving Outreach every year in our community. They are two of the most precious Jesus loving people you could ever know and being able to serve Jesus alongside them is a real treat. I love how they know kids by name and they invest in people for the long haul, giving their life so that one more will know Jesus. Their love for Jesus is straight up contagious. They are in the trenches with people who need food, not only for their bodies but also for their souls.
For a few years Grace Klein Ministries has shared from our abundance for the I Cared Enough Thanksgiving Outreach through clothing, food, prayer. But this year, God allowed us to help with clothing, groceries, pickup/delivery of food, inviting in new volunteer teams, prayer support and a general “what’s mine is yours” linked arms, we are with you, partnership. God blessed our socks off as we saw God provide money for non-perishable food, community volunteers sign up to prepare hot food, Motivated Movers loan two trucks and four movers… one of our partners donated a truckload of bananas that we were able to share, and on and on… God did it!!
The absolute delight was hearing that 400 people came to know Jesus from the 3000+ people who were served. Do you know what can happen in Birmingham if those 400 new Jesus followers start living as followers of Jesus? Love is about to spread. Forgiveness is going to happen. Lives are going to change. And if those 400 people introduce one person to Jesus in the next 12 months, the impact of I Cared Enough will immediately double. Do you see what could happen to our Birmingham?!
If you want to join us with Daniel Cason Ministries and I Cared Enough for 2019, start praying… We trust God will allow us to partner with Daniel Cason Ministries in 2019 and as their faith inspires us, we pray our faith will inspire them. Every week we will be committed to continue spurring one another on to love and good deeds. As Daniel would say, “GOD DID IT.”
