Families Spread Hope, Love During HSH Meal Distribution

BLOOMINGTON - Christmas is a time of giving back, and some Twin Cities families are using that time to bless others.
BLOOMINGTON - Christmas is a time of giving back, and some Twin Cities families are using that time to bless others.

Jessica and Darin Leman enjoy holiday giving, and this Christmas, they're driving through Bloomington, distributing meals for Home Sweet Home Ministries to families needing a bit of a pick me up.

"It's just a neat opportunity to think beyond ourselves during Christmas," said Jessica Leman.

This year, they've brought their four children along to help spread a little bit of joy to the community.

"It's a just a fun thing for the kids to do, to experience what Home Sweet Home does and what it's all about," said Jessica Leman.

At each stop, the family gave out meals, sang two Christmas songs, and prayed for the families. Plus, those receiving the gifts say the Lemans have truly been a blessing.

"Especially when you're by yourself...and they always bring a joy to me," said Betty Foley of Bloomington.

As they move from one house to another, the parents can feel the enthusiasm of their children spread to the families they were serving.

"Made you want to share the love of Jesus with them and went through a song or prayer and just let them know that they are important to the Lord and important to the community," said Jessica Leman.

And to see their children selflessly learning to give, it inspires them to keep going.

"It can definitely be a time of year when it can be kind of a selfish time to open presents and enjoy getting things. So, I love that we can go out and show the kids that Christmas can also be about giving to others," said Darin Leman.
