First Car Givaway

Well it's hard to beat hearing directly from people who's lives have been impacted throughout the 20 year history of The Crossing, but this one takes the cake! Our first car giveaway was given to the Jacinto family, and believe me it was incredible. Below is a letter written by Jay Jacinto:

I just wanted to personally send a message to you and everyone involved with the “20 Cars In 20 Days” ministry to say “THANK YOU!” a million times over. It is still a surreal reality we are living in, even AFTER 24 hours. We both keep looking out the front room window into the carport, thinking to ourselves, “It is STILL there!”

The amount of love that has been poured out upon my family is just overwhelming. Since receiving the car, we have spoken to many family and friends, explaining how the Lord has blessed us, and how this has solidified even more our faith and trust in the Lord, and what HE is ABLE to do.

I do not think the amount of smiles and hugs given the other day can express enough gratitude and praise for what has happened. Albeit, the ultimate praise and thanks is given to our Lord and Saviour, Christ Jesus, however, thanks and praise must be given to those who are working within this ministry . I know, without a shadow of a doubt, the other vehicles set aside are for other families whom the Lord has “hand-picked” as the recipients, and that the cars will be a great blessing in their lives, as it has been in ours.

I know I am on the “receiving” end of this blessing for this ministry, but, if you could, please provide me an update on when the other vehicles have been awarded, and to whom they have been awarded to (so to add them on my prayer list).

I pray this ministry continues to impact the lives of those involved just as much as those who will be receiving these vehicles, now and in the future.

Have a blessed holiday weekend, and I hope to hear from you soon!

In Christ’s Name,

Jay Jacinto
