TODAY’S NEED – $4,500.00

MERIDIAN —    

“If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has not pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?”  1 John 3:17

Praise belongs to God as every need since 2009 has been met.  Thanks to everyone who has generously given over the years to change and enhance lives physically, financially, and spiritually.  Each week I stand in awe of God as I witness God’s provision in our lives.

Today’s need concerns five circumstances. These circumstances are a compilation of people who shared with us their stories.  These stories protect the confidentiality of the individuals.  The first need is a single mother with one child.  She will be undergoing surgery in the next few weeks to treat her health problems.  She is waiting on a neurosurgeon’s diagnosis before surgery.  Her sickness has caused her to miss several days of work.  Assisting with her mortgage and utilities will help her through this difficult time.

The second need is a man that has always worked and taken care of his own bills.  His mom recently passed away, and it took all his finances to afford the funeral.  Helping with his bills will allow him to get back on track financially while grieving the loss of his mother.

The third need is a single mother with one child.  She recently had surgery for a blockage in her arteries to her heart.  She will have a second surgery in the next few months.  With our help, she can keep her utilities on while she prepares for the second surgery.

The fourth need is a lady trying to start a new life after escaping an abusive relationship.  She left the situation with only the clothes on her back and her dog.  She is now in the process of starting over from nothing.  We can provide rent and utilities while she begins a new job and life.

The fifth need is a man in his eighties living on a small, fixed income.  His utilities are in the process of being cut off despite all his efforts.  He has never asked for assistance before.  Keeping his utilities on will help him get his finances back in order.

With $4,500.00 we can meet all these needs.  Thank you for allowing God to show provision for these needs through your prayers and giving.

For your information, any story will be shared after all needs and individuals have been processed through the Wesley Clearing House.  Proof of I.D., pay stubs, tax records, and a social security number for each member of the household must be provided.  In addition, any child over 18 must provide income information, copies of any outgoing bills, and proof of any subsidy such as food stamps, housing allowance, etc.  This extensive application process ensures the people and the situations they face are real.  God is so good! Thank you for being somebody He can use.  Please pray for each need and see if God gives you the means to help.  If He puts it on your heart, please act on it.

        Monday mornings at 7:15, we have a weekly segment on 1010 AM WMOX called Wesley 1 John 3:17.  We will highlight the Today’s Need during the segment and take call ins for pledges.  The phone numbers are 601-693-1010 or 601-693-1891.  You can learn more about Wesley House Community Center, Inc., their six agencies and the progress for the Family Justice Center, Wesley 1 John 3:17, and other Wesley events by visiting our website: www.wesleyhousemeridian.org or our Wesley Facebook page for the latest updates and information.  Join our weekly email list for updates on emergency needs being met through Wesley 1 JOHN 3:17 by emailing “Add me” to trey@longwholesale.com.  Checks should be made out to Wesley House and mailed to Wesley House Community Center, Inc., PO BOX 1207, Meridian, MS 39302.  You can write on the memo line of the check Emergency Christian Relief. (ECR) Donations are tax deductible.  Thank you for allowing us to serve the community through your prayers and supportive gifts and donations.  All Glory belongs to God as lives are changing physically, financially, and spiritually.
