Three new referrals this past week.  We are in need of Life Preservers. One was matched with a Life Preserver the next day. The woman has stage two cancer and is a single parent. The Life Preserver will be helping with some rides to doctor appointments and befriending her. Please pray that she will get legal help to have the freedom to move her kids out of state where her family is. Due to custody rules she’s not allowed to move out of MN. She has no other personal support here other than her Life Preserver. The food shelf case worker said her face lit up with hope when she was given the R&R brochure. Cool. Please pray

Three of the families we are helping are getting help with finding housing. It’s really tough but we trust the Lord will provide something affordable.  Transitional housing would be awesome for them.

One couple is living in a motel, and another in their car. We will be helping with a few nights for the couple living in their car to have a motel room.  The woman is working and will be getting her paycheck next week so that is a positive for them. The family currently in the motel room has a potential apartment lined up now. We will be providing household items for both of these couples as they move into empty places. 

Clothing and a few toys were delivered to a family in need last week. The kids were SO happy and excited. Especially the boy whose dream it was to have a video system. R&R had an old one in storage and he is inviting his friends over to play. Before he felt so left out.  

Please pray for one of our friends who will be going to court in November to get her deposit back from her landlord.  It’s so disheartening to a person who has about $60 to live on a month!
