Jeri Needs Our Help

$9,030 of $9,000 goal

Raised by 114 people in 51 months
Our friend Jeri Massi has been laid off and is now facing major surgery.  She has helped so many, with her tireless work as an advocate for victims of clergy abuse.   Everything  that Jeri has done on behalf of her "Lambs" has been a gift funded by her own day job.   

Here are some examples of her excellent labor of love:


Lambs of Hephzibah House


Lamb's Workbook


Today Jeri finds herself in a tough place  as a single woman without a job and serious medical issues.
 
Now is our chance to help her.

No more donations, please! I am working again. My thanks to all who offered u prayers for me and sent kind words and donations. My health will probably never be very robust, but at the moment I don't have cancer, and I am rebuilding mylife, by the grace of God.

Michelle, Thank you so much for your kind and very generous gift. I really appreciate it, and thank you for your prayers. I am doing much better physically and at last have become brave enough to tackle the stack of medical bills, so far. The GoFundMe account has definitely kept my head above water, and I appreciate your charity in adding a gift to the fund. Thank you very much! Jeri

Holland Webb, thank you for your kind words and your kind gift (and the recent book review!). I appreciate all three! How can a guy as grown up as you have read DERWOOD when he was ten? I think that means I must be pretty old...Hmmmm. Well, thank you for your kindness. I appreciate it very much.

John Cash, I did read your article about hospital bills. Very wise advice. I have another friend who has told me the same thing: just pay what you can as you go. I plan to start looking at the medical bills this weekend. Thank you for the guidance, and thank you for your kind gift!

Sherry, thank you for your kind gift. I apologize for the lateness of this note. It's very kind of you to help me, and I appreciate your encouraging words along the way. I just saw the photo of your daughter on FB. The last time I saw a photo of her, I thought she didn't look anything like you. Then when I saw this one, I thought she looks exactly like you! Must be that big smile! Congratulations, and thank you again.

Ian, thank you for your second kind gift to me during this time of my recovery. I so enjoy the antics of Nellie and Honey. You are quite he rescuer. I still think over your recent words to me about your own physical limitations, and I continue to admire your quiet courage and kindness. Of course, you do live in a magic forest (I think that's right, isn't it?), so it is no wonder that you are amazing. Thank you again.

Linda, thank you for your continued kind support. I know you have suffered a great deal, and your kindness means a lot. The good news is that now I can wear loose pajama pants. It was getting drafty wearing just night shirts and night gowns! The scar from the surgery is very long, but the swelling around it has gone down a lot.

Bob, Thank you for your generous gift and words of faith. Yes, God saw me through, and made sure I got a zipper down the front of me to remind me! I am recovering well so far. The dogs came home last night, and I am able to spend a couple hours a day at my desk. Thank you so much for your kindness!

Linda, How nice, when I was finally able to look at my cell phone after surgery, and see your kind message and generous gift. I don't remember which exact day it was after surgery, as that entire week is all muddled in my head, but it was a great encouragement to see your kindness. Thank you for your words and your kind gift.

Voyle, Thank you so much for your kind gifts and for your testimony of God's provision. The first medical bills came today, and I just threw them into the pile of EOB notices from Blue Cross. It's still a little daunting. But I will get around to them! Thank you again for your kindness. I'm teetering around, but I DON'T have cancer, and that is such a mercy!

Jeri, I have loved your books, especially the Derwood stories, ever since I was a kid. Thank you so much for writing them. I'm sorry to hear of the tough situation you're in, and am praying for you.
