RFI Summer School Field Trip Olivia’s Family English and Math Time
I hope you are doing well in this warm weather! Greetings to you in the name of our Lord.
I want to introduce you to Olivia (age 38) and her children, the one the Lord sent us last month.
Olivia was born in Riverside and grew up in Redland. Since she was young, she lived with her mom and her step-father after her parents divorced early on. At the age of 18 years old, she married and had 4 children. She was faithfully raising them, but struggled with a husband who was addicted to drugs and had a strong temper. Over time, she found herself also faltering into drugs. She wanted to deal with this issue and also leave her husband, but she could not see how it would work. She heard about Rainbow Ministries through a relative and waited for the opportunity to bring along her 8 year old son Buddy and 4 year old daughter Maya. Since coming to Rainbow home, she has been focusing intently on rehabilitation and giving it her all. I know that the only one who can heal her is our Lord. I humbly ask for prayer covering Olivia and her family so that she may find healing in God’s love.
Rainbow Summer School has been progressing well throughout summer vacation. With the protection and love of volunteers, the children are being fed spiritually and being fed physically by the healthy meals and snacks provided through your generous donations. With the music and art therapy, they are growing in self-confidence and changing their perspective in a positive way. Each time I witness the transformation in the children, I thank God for the gracious supporters donations and prayers for us. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
On August 16, 2014, Saturday at 11:00am, we will have the RFI Summer School Graduation. At that time, we will be distributing back to school supplies, backpacks, and providing meals for parents,volunteers and guests .
I ask for your prayers and support for this special event.
The ministry is in desperate need of expansion upstairs. Currently, we are unable to begin the construction for expansion without all the required funds needed to begin construction. We are in dire need of expansion to provide more space for the families and children coming to us for safety and support. We are looking for 100 supporters who will support $1,000 each to the cause.
I ask that you will partner with us as we equip and help create a safe community by building them up with the Word of God and the Love of Christ.
“A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.”
I pray that His bountiful grace and peace will be with you, your home, church and work places always.
Because he lives,
Liz Lee / Director of RFM
