This morning I went to help clean a house. A lady from my church is trying to show love to a neighboring family. This family's daughter is in the hospital - overdosed last week - and will be in rehab for at least 4 weeks.
The family is unsaved, and it was very hard to see the hopelessness. This teen daughter, who is just one year older than Lindsay, doesn't even realize that there are options to premarital s*x, drugs, etc...
The mother is completely overwhelmed with this and with the struggle they had had with their daughter and is not really able to keep up with anything. So, we went and cleaned up the daughters room, sorting through things, we also cleaned their kitchen, bathroom and the son's room.
Would you please pray that God will draw this family to Himself, and that they will be able to rejoice is His Salvation?
This was not something I was looking forward to doing. I didn't know them, in fact I didn't really even know the lady from my church who is their neighbor. Tim encouraged me that I "should see what God might have for me in it." I am glad that I went, I am glad to have served my God by serving this family. I am glad that I have made a new friend from church.
God is at work - I can't wait to see what He is going to do!
