Let's bring Elijah Home!

This is a call for prayers and financial support to help Yolonda bring her baby home. Yesterday I received a phone call from an old childhood friend. I was shocked because we haven't spoken since we were teenagers. Any other time this would have been a welcomed call; nothing like hearing from old friends form the neighborhood. But sad to say It wasn't. It was her birthday yesterday and I sent a happy a birthday wish through FB. Who would have known doing so would cause me to receive a phone call that would move me to tears? Minutes after posting happy birthday, my business phone line rings with an unknown number, it turns out to be Yolonda. You can tell from her voice she was fighting back every tear she had just to talk. She proceeds to tell me that this birthday was a very sad day because her son Elijah who is 20yrs old was just found dead in NYC after being missing for over a year. Not the call you expect from an old friend. After speaking with her I also found out she didn't have enough founds to get Elijah home and to take care of his body. So I was moved to start a GoFundMe campaign to bring Elijah home. Yolonda is currently $5000 short of the necessary funds needed. If the Lord puts it on your heart I'm asking you to please contribute and support bringing Elijah home for a proper home going with his family.
