YOUR DONATIONS AT WORK! Imagine a knock at the door. You answer and 3 young children stand before you. The oldest boy hands you a note. The note is from your daughter that you have not seen in 9 years, because she got caught up in drugs and would not except help.
As you read the note you realize these 3 children standing in front of you are your grandchildren that you did not even know you had.
The note is giving you custody of the children because your daughter can not care for them anymore.
This is what happened to Mary this morning. She called me in a desperate state after the local police department referred her to Angels of God. Mary is older, retired and on a fixed income. The children came with nothing but the clothing they were wearing. The little one still in diapers.
I stopped what I was doing and invited Mary and the children to Angels of God to pick out, clothing, food and toiletries. The children are boy 8, girl 7 and boy 3. Life has been turned upside down for Mary and these young children.
I sat down with Mary and gave her every resource I could think of. I ran up to the attic where our stash of Christmas toys are and picked out a few toys for each child. I let the children each fill their own bags with their favorite foods and snacks. I stocked Mary up with food, clothing, toilets, diapers and wipes. Each of the kids picked out their favorite color toothbrush and brand new shoes.
We loaded the back of her car. Mary gave me a hug. She did not let go and started to cry. I ensured her we are here to help.
Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers as they adjust to things.
Thanks to your donations we were able to help this family in need.
