Matt and Christy are a young couple with a baby who came to Love INC recently, in need of help with just about everything. They were "couch surfing" with a friend, didn't have jobs, and weren't able to get jobs because they didn't have ID's or the means to pay the fees to get them.
Several of you, through our partner churches, helped them with things like bikes, personal care items, bus passes, Non-Food Pantry items, diapers and clothes for their baby, and laundry service. Other community partners also helped by providing free counseling and physical therapy sessions (thanks to George Fox University) and free eye exams and glasses for both of them (thanks to VSP Global Eyes of Hope).
You also helped us pay for their new identification cards!
All of these small steps led to a giant hand up for Matt, Christy and their precious baby boy.
They contacted us this week to let YOU know that Matt now has a job and they have become self-sufficient! Thank you for your generosity and allowing God to orchestrate all of these positive changes for this lovely young couple!
“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” – 2 Peter 3:9
