Local Readers Can Help!

My heart breaks for those in Haiti who
are in such dire straights after this
massive earthquake. How I would love to
help in a big way. It is not within my
ability to do that right now, but there is
something else I am working on that some
of you could help with...

There is a woman we found out about who
had to get out of an abusive relationship
quickly. She left with the clothes on her
back. Actually I don't even know her name.
She is a friend of my mom's hairdresser.

This woman needs help setting up a new life.
Furniture, Pans, dishes, silverware,
Pictures for the cards to
Wal-Mart, etc.
You get the idea. She has nothing.

We will be loading a truck with a bed and
two chairs to take to her on Friday. Anyone
who has items to donate can contact me
and we will arrange to get them from you.

It takes a lot of courage to remove yourself
from what you know sometimes, even if it is
bad....I am excited to help this lady get
a healthy new start.

I understand she is a new believer, as well.
How neat it will be to meet her.
I do hope that through this effort of her
dear friend, the hairdresser, she sees the
love of Jesus in a tangible way!

I hope you get plenty of stuff for this lady, Becky. I guess that those close by could help the most.

Becky you are an angel. I started a ministry several years ago called "None Should Perish" and the focus was to help ladies such as the one you write about as well as recovered drug addicts and released prisoners who wanted to start over and had nothing to start...May the Lord shower every blessing on you for your generosity...I have so many dishes, pillows and things I could give if I were closer.
So wonderful to see the love of God on display in others...The heavens are rejoicing.
