On Christmas eve, a church congregation surprised a man and his children who are grieving the loss of wife and their mother.
A Surprise On Christmas Eve
In September last year, Travis Feltner’s wife, Amber, went home to be with the Lord. She died from COVID-19, and since then, it has become hard for the family to accept the loss. The church acknowledged what the whole family was going through. Hence, they surprised them on Christmas eve church service.
Together with his whole family, Travis stood before the Compass Community Church congregation to receive the surprise. Then the church host explained that they were doing it “to be the hands and feet of Jesus” in their lives. Emily Blake, who serves at the church missions and outreach team, presented the Feltner family’s gifts.
Hands And Feet Of Jesus
“We heard about your story … just knew that we were led by God to show you His love,” she told them. “We just want you to know guys that we see you, that God sees you. And that He loves you. We may not ever be able to understand what pain and hardship you guys have been through lately. But through it all, God has a plan for your lives and He loves you and we love you.”
The church family blessed them with presents and toys for the children. What’s more, they gave them a $6,700 check to help pay utilities for the upcoming year 2022.
Travis began to tear up for what the congregation did.
“I just can’t believe all the things that this church has done..” he said. “It’s amazing what you guys have done for us. I had no idea what I was going to do. Thank you so much for reaching out and being there for us.”
