God answers prayer! See details in the comments.
Several families are facing the ends of their leases and need to find new places to stay on September 1. In addition to the challenges everyone faces when looking for a new home, all of these families don’t have much of a credit history and certain families have only one income.
Thank God for determining the times and places where we live. Please pray that the Lord will provide suitable and affordable housing for each of these families. Pray that these families will see God’s work in this situation.
Update (Oct. 17): One family who was looking for a new home back in August is still looking. The situation has become more urgent, as their refrigerator has not worked for two weeks and their current landlord refuses to fix it. The law requires this family of six to have 3 bedrooms, but most homes of that size are out of this family’s income range. Please ask the Lord to provide a new place for them this week.
Another update (Oct. 25): Please keep praying! See Jeri’s update below. Thanks!
