This week was full of surprises. Thank you Lord!

We saw God’s timing unfold and bring us to giggles. While picking up a donation, there was a new dehumidifier in the hallway which reminded us of the need for one in the storage room.  After mentioning this need to another crew member, she said “what’s that over there in the corner?” 

It was a dehumidifier in the donation pile!  It was taken to the storage area and we’ll see it plugged in this coming week.

While trying to find help for that delivery to storage another call came in for a couch donation that was suppose to be picked up by the next day also.  A bit of stress coordinating two things for one night… so a contact to a partner church was called. They were asked if they had anyone who needed a couch. “YES, we do!”  Thank you Lord!  That was resolved for the time being. The family was able to keep it for pick up a few days later. 

An R&R woman passed her driver’s test and now qualifies for a “Wheels To Work” vehicle!   

While the couch was being picked up, we were asked if anyone needed a car.  There may be a car donation for a different R&R family that is using the bus at wee hours of the morning to get to work.! 

Reconnected with a few R&R families. One of which was a Katrina family who moved back down to LA last year to get their house in order. Their kitchen is still not functioning. They are waiting for specific aide money to come about. They are in great spirits though and are working.

Learned of a family who had a house fire in our area. They are one of three families who are “homeless” and we are trying to find housing leads for. Please pray for them!

Also pray for a new 13 year old mother and her family. Her dad has terminal cancer and so life is sure turned upside down for all involved.  R&R is not directly connecting but will be sending diapers and clothing for the baby via a friend of the family. They need our prayers!
