Wow. What a full year!  God has opened doors for Reach & Restore and He continues to confirm the direction before our eyes as we put our faith in Him. 

December was a busy month as we helped a woman move, distributed 12 beds with bedding and have two more beds ready to be delivered any day. Two families were given all the basics to start over after getting out of shelters and a few others were given specific items requested. 

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to help two other people move as we were a bit overwhelmed near the end of the month. There were a handful of families that were adopted for Christmas and were blessed by deliveries by volunteers.  While delivering a bed and bedding to a single mother and her kids, the social worker asked one of the children if he had a pillow. He said he didn’t and the social worker said “Well now you do”.  “I have a pillow! I have a pillow!” He said with excitement. What a joy to tell the person who donated the pillow that they made a huge difference in someone’s life through something so simple.
