We posted pictures a few weeks ago of Ricky who lives here at the Recuperative Care House, getting baptized. He was being treated for stage 4 lung cancer.
Well he went to the Dr today and he is in remission and they stopped his chemo!
Thank you for your prayers. We are thanking and praising God!
On Monday afternoons we give food away at an apartment building a few blocks from our community.
We have been blessed to be touching the folks there for a long while. We used to deliver groceries to several of them, but the Lord opened the door for us to have a weekly food distribution in the courtyard. We have built a great relationship with the manager, and many of the kids who live in the building attend our weekly Kids’ Club.
“..no one who runs to Him loses out.” Psalm 34:22
Another summer, getting ready for about 40 kids to come for the month of July… Time to get new crayons(the old ones are small and worn), saving lots of cereal boxes, planning crafts, songs, games….
Every year we offer Kid’s Camp free of charge for their families… We serve them breakfast, lunch, and 2 snacks Monday through Friday along with crafts, games, sports, art, scripture, coloring, playing, and so much more… We have a great team of volunteers who make it happen, and who love on the kids and take care of them.
If anyone would like to help sponsor an activity, a craft, or a meal…. For example, you could sponsor a Pizza Party, which would be about 15 pizzas or so, for $75…. Or someone could buy a couple brand new boxes of crayons…. Or $40 for the supplies for a really great craft….. Or you could help us stock up on a bunch of water balloons… Or a big trip to the movies 🙂
If you’re interested in sponsoring, please contact Heather Wilson at email@example.com
Thank you so much!
And thank you to all those who have already volunteered and those who have given to our Kid’s Camps,….. you have truly blessed these kids!!
Here are some photos from our 15th Annual Christmas Blessing!! So many people gave of their time, talent, money, hard work, donations, hugs and lots of LOVE!! We were able to bless so many children with gifts, and their families with groceries, clothes, etc… Again, thank you to all who gave and volunteered!
Can’t wait for this year’s blessing!!! Only 8 more months!!
Since August of last year we have been working with UCSD Medical Center to become a Recuperative Care site. We will be housing Homeless men who have had surgery and need a place to recuperate and not be on the street, which causes them to end up back in the hospital. They will be with us from 2 weeks to 3 months, giving us opportunity to minister and care for them, build relationships and help connect them with permanent housing. We were approved on Friday and have recently done assessments of two patients. One is now living here with us.
We want to continue to care for those who are in need…
Please keep us in your prayers as we move forward following God’s leading.
