Sorry for the duplicate post. I goofed on the first one.
Show a Sister some LOVE and Help.
Greetings to you all!
I went to a women's conference and met a homeless lady. She is very young and was being helped by a local organization. She accepted Christ as her Savior that day and I had the privilege of walking her up the isle. She has continued to go to church and she got baptized with 300 other people! Also, she has gotten "out on her own" and has an apartment in Gary. She isn't "homeless" anymore. (The town helps her pay for things.)
God has brought her across my path several times since then. I was in a local town one day and there she was walking down the sidewalk. She was going to walk from that town to another (several towns over)
with bronchitis because she had a chance to see her daughter. I also ran into her at her church recently.
Since she has gotten a place to stay and doesn't have anything, she could use some help. She has NOT asked me for help. I offered her my refrigerator and microwave and she was grateful.
This girl doesn't have a bed or anything else for that matter. I had given her a Bible at the conference and just can't bear the thought of her having to sit on a floor in this apartment to read it. I believe that she does read it because she carries it with her in her purse.
I know that this is a long post but I wanted to give you info on her since I am asking for help.
Can you help me get some things to her? I can not bear the thought that she is sleeping on the floor in this apartment.
I am going to make a list of things that she needs for sure and things that she has. Please let the LORD lead you in your giving. If you ask for wisdom, He will give it to you.
Some dishes (I will give her more)
Blankets (not sure of condition)
I am going to buy her an air bed and sheets
Her car is leaking oil and needs looked at and fixed
Small table with chairs
Living room chair or loveseat
*****A pay as you go phone with minutes
Something wonderful to hang on the wall ?
Some bowls for cooking in the microwave
I don't know if she has a stove
A simple devotional for women
Most of all she needs prayer. She has a lady who lives next to her who does drugs and just leaves them out on a table. Her father does drugs and cares about his drugs more than her (she told me). Her mother lives in another state and seems to only care about herself. She will soon be visiting the area and "staying" with her.
She seems to try to stay away from the negative people in her life.
Please email me if you can help.

So then, as occasion and opportunity open up to us, let us do good [[i]morally] to all people [not only [j]being useful or profitable to them, but also doing what is for their spiritual good and advantage]. Be mindful to be a blessing, especially to those of the household of faith [those who belong to God's family with you, the believers].
