When You Step Up to Serve, Amazing Things Happen

“Lisa” came to Love INC a few weeks ago because she heard we have volunteers willing to do service projects.

She had recently been diagnosed with cancer and was getting ready to start a natural treatment process that would involve a lot of time spent preparing special foods. She also knew the treatment she would be going through would make her very tired and was concerned that she wouldn't be able to keep up with her house work and yard work.

We put her on our serve project waiting list and told her we would be praying for her, but also explained that we may not be able to provide the ongoing type of help she was looking for.

But God is so good and He knows what we need before we even ask!

Just a few days after we met with Lisa, we got a volunteer application from someone who, when she came in for an interview, expressed interest in providing help with house work and yard work, possibly on a regular basis for someone who may need it. So we connected the two of them and they are meeting this week to work out a schedule.

We never cease to be amazed at God's generous blessings and His perfect timing!

“And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” - Hebrews 11:6

God Saw Brenda’s Need and Met It in Amazing Ways.

“Brenda” was forced to move out of her home for several months due to flooding, all the while her husband was suffering from dementia and going downhill quickly.

Right before the work on her home was complete and ready to move in, her husband was sent to a care facility. Brenda had no one to help her move.

At that same time the Youth Pastor from North Valley Friends church contacted our office looking for a service project for his middle school students. When Brenda came into our office looking for assistance, we knew God had provided the perfect opportunity.

God’s timing couldn’t have been more perfect when the youth group was only available on April 14th. Right after the move in day was scheduled, Brenda’s son found himself available and called her to say “How about we make April 14th move-in day?”

 “The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.” - Lamentations 3:25-26


Les Schwab Helps Client In Distress!

Volunteers often call Love INC clients to catch up and see if they need any other assistance. When a volunteer called “Steven,” she found him stranded with four flat tires!

Steven didn’t know what to do, so this volunteer took action and called Les Schwab. They quickly agreed to help!

Once Steven was able to get his car to Les Schwab they were able to fix two of the tires and replace the other two with some used ones they had on hand at no cost.

We are SO blessed to be part of a community that is willing to work together to help people in need. Thank you Les Schwab!
