Awhile back, we had a chance to reach out and help a family in need. (Read about them HERE.) The Quinton family suffered tragedy after attending a workshop a few months ago and we wanted to pitch in to lend them a hand with something that is hard to do in the midst of sorrow – practical everyday things, like grocery shopping. You all were wonderful in helping with this outreach, and we just received a touching letter from the family we’d like to share:
To My Brothers & Sisters from Time 2 Save:
There are just no words that can express our gratitude & thankfulness for what you all have done. The love and support we have received from ones we have never met has deeply touched our hearts. We never thought that our family would be thought of and loved and cared for the way we have been. I know, for myself, when I came to the workshop here in Dalton, I was so excited about what we had learned, I wanted to share it with so many. I knew we didn’t know a lot, but what we did know we needed to try to share so their families could be helped. This never got to happen because of Hunter’s accident, however, I have told everyone about your ministry. I am in the food ministry at my church, we cook for families for funerals and I thought this could just be an extension. We could help so many others. I never thought it would be us that would be ministered to.
God put me at that workshop for the specific purpose of becoming closer to each and every one of you . You will never know what it meant to have the load lifted of not having to shop. I physically and mentally just could not and God sent all of you to minister to us. You all, I know will be truly blessed.
It was amazing, as we put up groceries it was exactly what we needed. We had an overabundance of some things and felt the need to give to someone else as well. So not only did you bless us, you also blessed someone else as well. Thank you so much! Those words seem so inadequate but I pray God will allow you to feel the love and appreciation we have for each and everyone of you!
I don’t know how this will get to everyone, but God does and I know we don’t know everyone’s name, but God does. And truly, I love you, our family loves you and thanks you from the bottom of our hearts. This ministry will grow abundantly…anything does as long as God is the center of it and I can certainly say I believe God is the center of this ministry!
Thank you ALL!
The Quinton Family

Thinking back to the most difficult losses in our lives, Kelly’s mom passed away in a car accident, and my father of brain cancer we remember the people who stepped in and meet the physical needs in our lives. We were blessed by those who prepared meals, brought groceries to our homes, cut the grass, answered phones, or even did laundry just so we didn’t have to. Now, it’s our turn.
