~Update on the Homeless Sisters from Rob Randall

Gratitude to The Place for opening your heart. I am so thankful to announce that we exceeded $1000 last week. They are getting new tires this week. I will collect funds one more time today as their needs are unrelenting. I will stand at the door after service (their CDs as gift for donation). Praying God works a miracle where they don’t have this need again! Jesus said, “We have the poor with us always.” There may always be people in need around us if we have eyes to see. You have shown your beautiful hearts. Thank you!
