Ministry Update – July, 2018
Hello Ministry Friends,
Building Strong is the focus God gave Love INC this year (1 Chronicles 28:10). In this effort, we are working with a ministry called Etch a Vision to review our internal processes starting with workflow in our Clearinghouse Call Center. Our staff will be walking together to overcome operational road blocks in Love INC through prayer, relationships (working together and understanding our gifts), and focusing on continual improvement. I am excited about this opportunity!! Please keep us in your prayers as we go through this review.

Featured Client: In February we began journeying with a single mom of two kids, one of which is disabled. She was referred to us by Urban Development and is working with one of our partner ministries who provides summer programs and after school care for her children. She was under employed and wanted to get her CNA certification. We were prepared to support her in this positive decision by covering the background check fee, but the fee was waived and she received a full scholarship for the class. She just graduated and the school is helping her find a good job! Also, God provided an unexpected check in the mail and she was able to purchase a used car. Along the way, we encouraged and prayed for her, and provided bus passes (before she got her car), and a gas card. Love INC is currently assisting her with auto repairs and she is enrolled in our budget mentoring program. We are privileged that God allows us to journey with her while He provides for her in amazing ways. Please continue to pray for her as she works toward sustainability.
Thank you, our supporters, because none of this would be possible without your support. We love and appreciate you! God Bless You,
