Crystal’s Family Christmas 2021 Young Leaders of America
Happy New Year!!
Thankful for the Lord’s infinite love and grace, Rainbow Family offers greetings for the New Year.
This past Christmas with the help of our steadfast supporters, churches, and organizations, we were able to experience the abundance of the Lord’s love and blessings.
Grateful for his overwhelming grace, we look forward to the Lord’s plans for 2022.
The 2021 Christmas event was blessed with Calvary Presbyterian Church Pastor Kwang Soo Lee’s sermon, Grace Korean Church’s worship, and Calvary Presbyterian Church Pastor Jeong chan Kim’s blessings.
Unlike the past 19 years, approximately 70 people including our neighbors and many families of Rainbow family program graduates came to celebrate and receive gifts. With the special help and donations of Calvary Presbyterian Church, Immanuel Presbyterian Church, Grace Korean Church, Young Leaders of America, Jennifer Cho, Dr. John Lee, Won-Hak Kim, Jong-Doo Park, Dong-gil Kim, Director Jenny, Jinny, Kyung, and all our supporters, every single person returned home with a gift. We were able to eat to our heart’s content and celebrate the Lord’s birthday with a feast that was prepared by the small group of Grace Korean church.
We praise the Lord of love for always working the miracle of 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish. Hallelujah!!
We would like to introduce 32 years old Crystal and her 18month old son Konnor who joined us last month. Crystal shared that she was born to a mother who struggled with drug addiction and was thus entrusted in the hands of her grandmother. Since her grandmother served and attended a Baptist church, Crystal has been attending church since she was young. She also graduated from a Baptist High School. Even though she knew a lot about the bible, she wasn’t able to create a relationship with Jesus because of the wounds in her heart. She met her son’s father when she was committing crimes and gave birth to her son. However, she ended up giving her son up for adoption due to her drug addictions and visits to prison. Konnor is her second son and his father is in prison. Crystal is also on probation and can only visit her son twice a week. Crystal became involved with our home through the Probation officer, but she is eager to meet all the requirements in order to keep her son. We ask for prayers and support so that Konnor can live with his mother as soon as possible.
“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.”
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,
Director of RFI
