Tuesday’s Thoughtful Way to Serve Others……a day early

I received this email today from the director of With Love From Jesus and wanted to go ahead and post these needs. Please pray and ask the Lord if there is something you can do to help these people…

We have 4 families that are in desperate need:

One family is from Waxhaw. They had a fire a year ago this past March. The dad/husband lost his job 10 months ago. The wife/mom has recently found out she is 5 months expecting, surprisingly, they already have 4 children. The house was a new dwelling when they bought it. They lived there for 1 1/2 years, then the fire happened. Second story fire, came down on first story – totally lost. The insurance paid off the note of the home. They also received "content insurance", which is how they have rebuilt as far as they have. The home is framed, bricked and closed in, but nowhere near done inside. There have been some teams of men working from First Baptist – Indian Trail, Mt. Harmony Baptist and Lee Park Baptist – THANK YOU GENTLEMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – It has been such a blessing to this family. The mother works for the school system, but cannot return right now, due to her being pregnant, she cannot lift the poundage required for the cafeteria (50 lbs.), she can only lift 25 – 30. Some of the churches are planning another work day – probably around Labor Day Weekend, I will update as I find out for sure, we sure could use some more skilled tradesmen.

There is a need for: faucets for the bathrooms and kitchen sink. There is a need for carpet in 2 rooms – they did not have enough; There is a need for rolled insulation. There is a need for carpentry, roofing, facia and faceboard.

These folks have ran out of money. When I walked thru their house, I kept "hearing/feeling" these folks need oxygen! Folks, if you are in a desperate situation – you honest to God can feel like you are choking on the situation – believe me. I did not know how true what I was feeling God say to me – this past Saturday, I asked Regina, while watching the Lord move and send soo many to bless them with help, "Regina, have you seen Jesus pass your way?" Her reply, "yes maam, I feel like I can breathe now!" Thank you Jesus for speaking to me to know how you want us to help, or follow when it makes no sense! Regina is smiling and laughing now! She has seen and felt the "HEALER" pass her way! Folks, Jesus is not just a "HEALER" of illness – HE IS THE HEALER OF EVERYTHING WE NEED! JEHOVA JIREH!

Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives.
–Galatians 5:25, NLT

Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.
–Hebrews 10:24, NLT

FAMILY # 2:

You folks might have seen on the news where a fire truck, that didn’t scotch the wheels, (I don’t know if that is the right word), ran thru a house in Gastonia. This family lost everything – when the firetruck went thru, the man / dad was on the couch asleep, with an enormous fish tank beside him, and it shattered the fish tank and soaked him – he was sooo blessed that it did not decapitate him! They came thru the ministry the other day, they had no renters insurance. They need everything – the second floor came down with the crash and broke tons of their things. They need from furniture to cutlery! This is a huge truck that went thru their home. They have since secured a home in Mt. Holly, but nothing to put in it!

FAMILY # 3:

An adult man called to see if we had a bike. He NEEDS THE BIKE TO GET BACK AND FORTH TO WORK! If you have an adult bike, would you consider donating this for this man!

FAMILY # 4:

A mom called this morning, by way of referral from the Social Worker At CMC hospital. She has a 17 year old daughter who just gave birth 2 days ago, who needs a bassinet, baby bed, or a pack and play. We tell people abortion is wrong – well, we NEED to step up and help her with that decision if possible! By the way, all things are possible with GOD!!!!!!!!!

If you can help, please email me at servingwhilesaving@gmail.com and I will pass along the appropriate information.
