Can you imagine your child living out of your car?
That’s what happened to Grace. Her parents had been married for 15 years. One day, her mother wanted out of the marriage and told her and her father they were no longer allowed to live in the home they rented. Grace’s father found a trailer to rent, but needed first and last month’s rent. Until your gift, they were living in her dad’s truck.
You have helped Grace have a home. This child, who had no voice in any of the decisions made by her parents, now has a place to shower, to eat and to do her homework. You were the adult who was there for her when she needed it the most. As the Bible tells us, “Blest are they who show mercy; mercy shall be theirs.” Thank you for showing mercy toward the poor among us.
