“All things have become new”

By Nina, volunteer from AshdodIMG 20190301 WA0005a

Having learned about the ministry, my unbelieving friends, husband and wife, started giving us clothes for the street people. The clothes are accepted with gratitude, because the need for them is great. For the addicted and homeless boys and girls it is a means to both get warm and put on something clean. It is also a natural desire of any person – even when he or she has fallen to the very bottom of life – to remain looking like a human being.

Shoes are even a more serious problem. The sizes are different, and the addicts’ legs are often covered with painful wounds. One day I asked two rehabilitants to pass a pair of good shoes to Aviv Center. They were going there the next day. They looked at the shoes - and understood they needed them too... But I heard them say to each other: “No, our sister sends them to Aviv Center and this is where we shall bring them”. It was amazing to hear that, because on the streets these guys left only a while ago, not just your shoes could be taken from you, but your very life. But now for those two rehabilitants “old things have passed away and all things have become new”!
