AL ministry gives car to Phenix City mother of 6

Car donated to Phenix City mother of 6

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - She was homeless up until a month ago in East Alabama, but now Kina Shield's life has changed, including getting a new car on Tuesday night.

We were there when they surprised the woman and six kids. She was shocked, yelling "Are you serious? You got to be kidding me!"

There was plenty of emotion from the mother of six in Phenix City, with her kids running to get a closer look at their new vehicle - given to them by an anonymous donor, through a local ministry.

"The donor just felt led by the Lord to donate the car to her, so she'd have a way around. She's here with no family and six kids," said Marie Clark with Trunks of Love.

"Biggest blessing ever in my life, besides my kids," said Shields about receiving the car.

Moving here from Chicago, Shields was homeless just one month ago. Now, her family has a place to live, with someone else donating that money to cover the rent and furnishings. Now, add a car!

"Thank you to whoever gave and I want to keep giving just like them to others that need it," daughter Caira Shields said.

"It makes all the blood, sweat, tears and prayers worth it," said Lauren Allen with Trunks of Love.

For the Trunks of Love ministry, which helps families in need and single mothers, it was an opportunity to bless this family.

"Now we can get to work, get places we need to without asking people all the time, definitely a big help," Shields added.

"See a need and work together to meet that need, not just turn a blind eye to it," Jacob Allen said, also representing Trunks of Love.

If you'd like to donate to the ministry that helped this family, you can do so at this link or on the Trunks of Love Facebook page or through PayPal through this email.

Norman Automotives was also involved in this car giveaway to the Shields family.
