11/23/18: Day 1
- The H.O.P.E Store RVA's first sale came from our online store. $1,000 toward a combination of local, domestic, and international needs: CARITAS, Bridging RVA Christmas Dinner, Virginia Baptist Disaster Response, and a whole list of supplies for Ghana including new sewing machines and supplies for new churches!
- We had kids come in today who gave up their Christmas money to buy a sewing machine and other supplies for Ghana.
- People have bought books for English as a Second Language (ESL) students, beds for kids, clothes for men at The Healing Place (CARITAS), disaster response supplies, and much more.
- A woman came in and told her husband, "I'd like you to buy me a church for Christmas." So he bought her a church plant kit that includes all of the supplies needed for a new church in Ghana including training for a pastor!
