That’s all I keep on saying every time I open up my email and see yet another message from somebody stating that God laid it on their heart to give money to help the Rene family get into a home. It has been overwhelming.
I stated less than 24 hours ago that it would be great to raise $500 or so to get this woman with 7 orphaned childen that she is caring for out of the tent and into a home. Well…to the praise of His goodness…we have received over $2,000!!!! WooHoo!!!!
This is amazing! We will be able to get this woman and kids into a decent home and posibly pay for 2 years rent rather than just one, as well as purchase some beds for the children since right now they are sleeping on the floor.
I don’t know if I should say, “Stop Giving” or “Let’s keep on giving so that we can bless the socks off this whole family.” I love it when we seek to do something meager and the Lord turns it into something huge. That is when you know that it truly is the Lord who is orchestrating everything. May He alone receive all glory and praise!
So, to keep my conscience clear, I want to let everybody know that over $2,000 has been raised to help this family, which is more than enough to get them into a home for the year which was the original intent. We don’t “need” anymore to do what we originally wanted to do. But, if you all want to keep on giving to really bless this family, then by all means go ahead and continue pouring it on. I can assure you that whatever amount is given will be used strictly for this family in one way or another, whether it be used to pay for multiple year’s rent or furniture or whatever. This family is going to be absolutely blown away when they hear what the Lord has done for them! Oh, I am so excited!!!
Yes, like I said in my last post, living out James 1:27 definitely requires sacrifice. And thank you all for sacrificing and stepping out in faith. But how rewarding it is to know how this has pleased God our Father in such an amazing way. You are indeed caring for the orphans in their distress…and that is a HUGE deal to God. Well done, people. Well done.
