A Family In Dire Need

$825 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 13 people in 43 months
On this morning at worship one of our sisters in Christ shared a heartbreaking story, she and her family of five are about to be evicted from their apartment. This family was adopted by our congregation a few years ago durning the Christmas season, the mom is disabled and the dad has been unable to find steady work, their teenage son works but it's hardly enough to make a difference. We took on the responsibility of assisting them with many of their financial needs, including rent. It was beautiful to see God's family actually living out  what the Apostle Paul so vividly described  in Acts 2:45.  Our little congregation shared our blessings from the sale of property with this little family and so many others, it really brings me to tears as to the many seeds that have been sown as a result of our giving, both globally and in our community.  Well, we've reached a place where we can no longer assist in this manner  but we're eternally grateful for what God has done through his small body. As I was leaving this morning I thought man, I wish I could do something...Well, you know the rest of the story:) If you can assist in any way it will be kindly appreciated, they actually need the money on tomorrow,  March 30th @ 3pm., I know this is such short notice but we just found out. Sorry!!! It's not always easy sharing hardships like this. Anything you can do would be greatly appreciated. xoxoxox!!! If you would like to assist but would like for it to go through the church please message me...checks can be made out to the Vista church of Christ.  Please pray for this family, thank you!

On last Sunday March 29, 2015, a Gofundme account was set up on behalf of a family who was in dire need of having $1000.00 raised on their behalf to avoid being evicted from their home in two days. Thanks to all who prayed, donated money in addition to sharing their story on your FB page. The money was raised through personal cash donations as well as the gofundme account online, the rent was paid on April 1, 2015. An additional $225.00 to date was donated and will be given to the family. The family is overwhelmed at the love and generosity that has been shown to them. When I think about the goodness of God and how he works through humanity I'm moved to tears. Yes, there is a God and he's worthy to be praised. Thank you and love you all FBF!!!
