It's time to Party!
Welcome to Gus' Gang!! My name is Jenny (Jenny-up the hill) and this is a blog that I have started to journal about our family ministry, Gus' Gang. My husband and I started this ministry in memory of our son Gus who passed away May 31, 2006. Gus was waiting on a liver/small bowel transplant which would have taken place in Pittsburgh. His little body just was not able to hold out for organs and he peacefully went to Heaven. We miss him terribly but at the same time we rejoice because he now is living the life he so deserved!
It is our desire to come along side others who are caring for medically fragile children and of course, those families that are grieving the loss of a child. We do this by sending quilts to children, sending out grief packages(containing Heaven by Randy Alcorn and Treasures in Darkness by Sharon Betters, a blanket, journal book and chocolates), crocheting/knitting preemie hats for local NICUs and making "buddy dolls" and quilts for local children's hospitals. Of course, the most important thing we do is pray for these precious children and for the Lord to shower grieving parents with the peace that He has showered on us!
If you know of someone that you would like a "grief package" sent to, please e-mail me with their information. The "grief packages" are free. I will keep all information confidential. Of course, please let me know if there is a child we need to be praying for....I'd love to add them to the "gang"!!
Head on over to 5 Minutes for Mom to visit other parties!!
