Dear church family,
Tonight I heard about a Congolese lady, a refugee and the mother of 3 girls 5 yrs. and under. She and her husband were resettled in the northeast, and have been in the U.S. for a number of years. Her husband very recently abandoned her, leaving her with nothing, so she came to Dayton to be among friends in the growing Congolese Christian community. She is currently living in a homeless shelter with her children, and has been told it could take 2-3 months for an apartment to be found. This is a difficult situation, but even worse – she is required to leave the shelter all day. The shelter only provides dinner and a bed.
There are a number of Congolese families who can provide for her during the day, but transportation is a problem. Does anyone have a car they could either give to her, or let her borrow until she can move out of the shelter? She has a valid driver’s license. I know this is a big request, but let’s see what God can do! If you can help, please contact Barb Harvey (878-9826, baharvey )
