Girl and Mother saved at Flea Market

The staff at SOS continually looks for sales, bargains and inexpensive ways to cut cost of the ministry. Tom and Carolyn decided to go to a Flea Market to see if they could find something needed for the ministry.

While looking at the many booths a girl and her Mother were also looking.

Her Mother said, “That’s what I have been telling her.”

“Do you know there is someone who can help you with that?” Tom responded.

“Tell me who.”
