Today's need — $2,150

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 couple with two children. The husband was injured in a car wreck and has been unable to work full time. The wife is working all the hours she can but can’t make enough to replace her husbands missed income. We can provide utilities while the husband regains his strength.

The second need is a single mom in her 50s with one child. She recently underwent emergency surgery causing her to miss several weeks of work. She is struggling to make ends meet. Assisting with her mortgage and utilities will help her during this difficult time.

The third need is a man in his 50s just released from the hospital with a list of prescribed medications. He can’t afford the necessary medications. We can provide medications while he awaits approval for the patient assistance program.

The fourth need is a lady in her 80s afraid her utilities are going to be cut off.  She lives on a small, fixed income and can’t seem to catch up after the cold winter utility bills. Providing utilities will relieve this lady of some of her financial problems.

The fifth need is a single mother in her 20s with two daughters. This month both of the daughters caught a virus resulting in her having to take off from work. The missed hours at work have resulted in financial difficulty. We can help this single mom catch up by assisting with her mortgage.

With $2,150 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.
