There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be open handed toward your brothers and toward the poor and needy in your land. Deuteronomy 15:11

Hello Ministry Friends,

Together we reached an under-served population in Brevard County this year — the elderly. One such person is Joe, who was handicapped and home-bound due to a car accident and resulting back surgeries.

While Joe was in the hospital his home was broken into and vandalized resulting in thousands of dollars in damage. Many of his possessions were taken as well. He was bathing with a bucket because even the plumbing fixtures were stolen. Joe’s son, who lives in another state, reached out to Love INC on his behalf. Joe was adopted by one of our partner churches and Christian brothers and sisters came alongside him to help in the repair and painting of his home, landscaping of his yard, and spiritual encouragement.  Our business partner, Auger Plumbing, joined in the effort to help Joe by replacing fixtures and making the much needed plumbing repairs.  One day Joe cried and told his Love INC Mentor that “no one cared about me a year ago, but the church, through Love INC, has loved and cared for me.” Unexpectedly, Joe went home to be with the Lord on August 6, just months after becoming a Love INC client. His family is grateful for the love and care that you, The Church, provided Joe.

Everyday your support makes stories like Joe’s possible. Together we have met 4,411 needs so far this year providing mentoring, prayer, bibles, mental health counseling, personal care items, furniture, appliances, housewares, clothing, affordable transportation (bus passes, auto repair, and vehicles), budget mentoring, gas and food cards, and so much more. On behalf of each person served, THANK YOU!

 

Our goal is to double the number of needs met in 2019, and we need your help to make that happen. Our goal is to raise $50,000 by December 31st.

Would you be willing to make a special year end donation of $100, $500, or whatever you can afford to help us reach our goal of meeting 8,822 needs in 2019?

We simply cannot do it without your help. Your support will make a real, lasting impact in the lives of those who still are in need of HOPE, HELP, and a HAND-UP to freedom in Christ!

Please make your secure online donation now at loveincbrevard.com/give, or mail your gift in the enclosed envelope.

With gratitude, Kristy Stuart

Executive Director
