How are you doing in the midst of harsh weather changes?
Indebted in love and pursuing a new life in the Lord, Rainbow Family offers our monthly greetings.
I would like to introduce a family that joined us last month: 29 year old single mother Marisa and her 2 year old daughter for Marisa and her daughter Leanne.
Marisa’s mother and father were separated due to her mother’s drug addictions. Born to a wandering mother, she spent most of her childhood in foster care. There were moment mother and Marisa lived in a shelter when she was out of prison. Her mother passed away early after her health deteriorated due to her addiction to drugs. Afterwards, Marisa realized that she was walking the same path as her mother. She joined Rainbow Family in order to be with her daughter Leanne again who is in foster care. She has accepted Jesus Christ as her savior and is working hard in her rehabilitation program. We ask for support and prayers
24 year old single mother Veronica and her 5 year old son David and 2 year old daughter Emma have also joined our Rainbow Family. Veronica shared that she left home at an early age due to her drug addiction. Afterwards she met the father of her children who was constantly in jail. She left her kids in her mother’s care and started living on aimlessly. Due to this the government got involved and limited her time with the kids to 3 days a week. However, with her participation in our rehabilitation program and the constant drug tests, she may be able to live with her children from April. Even though she has never read the bible before she has accepted Jesus as her savior and she is attending daily bible studies and church on a regular basis.
Daniel, a very talented boy scout, volunteered for Rainbow Family School in the previous year. He stopped by occasionally and became a good friend to our children. Last month, along with his boy scout friends, Daniel prepared materials to create two wonderful picnic tables for us. The tables have served multiple purposes for eating, doing homework, and playing. I would like to bow down in thanksgiving for Daniel’s genuine heart in serving and everyone who worked hard to create the tables.
The Rainbow Family was miraculously sustained by our supporter’s prayers and monetary donations. We ask you to join forces with us to help Rainbow Family become a true place of refuge for those who are hurt and marginalized through monetary donations and prayers.
Ephesians2:10 “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God
prepared in advance for us to do.”
We pray that the protection, hope, and peace of the Lord will always be with you who constantly provide to neighbors in need with outstretched arms. We bless that you will be filled with spiritual things of heaven and the fertile things of the earth.
Because He lives,
