Here’s a small taste of what your support enables me to do for others
I need your help as the cold weather looms!
LaMonda was a regular of mine for a relatively short time. I had been helping her for about six months. For context, there are women whom I’ve known and assisted for more than six years.
Anyway, LaMonda is a very pleasant African-American homeless woman — perhaps in her mid-30s. I’d stop by to see her two or three times a week. She’d give me updates as she diligently worked her way through the Sisyphean red tape to get housing.
Well, she just finally got a room of her own in Brooklyn!
We’ve already said our sentimental goodbyes and I ask you to send prayers and good wishes to LaMonda as she begins a bold new chapter of her life.
In other news, I hadn’t seen Anna for a while. The last time that happened, I learned that she had fallen and had to spend time in the hospital. So, I was getting concerned. Well, last week, I found her in her regular spot and approached with sincere excitement.
Before I could speak a word, Anna said to me: “I’m so glad to see you. I was getting worried about you!”
She. Was. Worried. About. Me.
Folks, this is yet another reason why I urge you all the time to choose a life of service. It offers favor the likes of which you can’t imagine until it arrives.
I want to say thank you to everyone who makes it possible for me to be there to help and befriend vulnerable souls like LaMonda and Anna. Please keep the support coming!
