Now that the snow has settled, we can all take in the sun. THE SONCool

Many things have happened since our last entry. Besides the move of our donations, God has been moving people. If only everyone could get a taste of what it is like to be God’s helper here!

A dresser was provided for a swimmer who is having company this week. She has no family-grew up in foster care and was in tears over the mess in her room because of the lack of storage. It was a joy to deliver the help to her and she was blessed.

A single R&R mom was given chairs to go with her table. When they were dropped off we learned that she had just gotten out of the hospital from having a panic attack. She needed encouragement and a connection that day. Maybe that’s why the chairs weren’t gathered earlier with the table.? 

A R&R family was given food and gas assistance,  another was given a bed, transportation, and was moved into a better housing situation.  An R&R woman was walked through a panic moment of her furnace not working. The problem was resolved and she said “THANK YOU. I am so thankful for you.” God uses us to comfort and persevere. 

Another R&R mom had a preschooler with a high fever and called for help. It was a night of heavy snow and she was stranded because her vehicle doesn’t have working headlights. She had no Tylenol or thermometer.  Her Life Preserver brought over those items and brought relief to the family.

Tuesday, a church member called out of the blue and asked if anyone needed a humidifier. Normally, this is an item that isn’t needed specifically. The next day, one of the R&R people (the one mentioned above) was moving and did NEED one!  God’s timing is amazing. 

A family was referred to our church in a desperate search for housing. A person from our church happened to have a property in the area that housing was desired and is working with them-a lease was signed this past week! An answer to prayer for both parties and next weekend will be the move.

We were asked if R&R had a microwave on hand. A Life Preserver saw the need of his swimmer who is elderly and recently had a stroke, and is now homebound.  Because of our new storage area, we do have a microwave we can pass along to this person! Praise God! 

Please pray for employment, housing and more people to serve and be a witness to our community.
