“Oh, thank you! This was so much more than I was ever expecting. God has certainly brought us together.”
Talking to Betty now, compared to where she was a month ago, you can see that God has been at work in her life. Living alone with a rapidly advancing brain tumor, things were getting out of hand. The house she had called home was more than she could handle – selling was becoming the only option.
But how was she supposed to go about getting it ready to sell? Recently, she had been falling a lot, unable to contact those she needed. The most important thing that needed to get done was getting her yard in order, but how would she go about it?
Calling Love INC seemed like a last-ditch effort, but Betty thought it was worth a try.
When Love INC received Betty’s call, we were so grateful for the opportunity to connect her with one of our service groups. After reaching out to many churches, Calvary Community Church stepped up and took on this special project.
Calvary quickly sent a team out to her home, their intention being to get the job done that day and show the love of Christ. What they did not expect was that God was at work orchestrating a lasting relationship that would facilitate change in Betty’s life.
In talking with Betty, they were blessed by her sweet demeanor and could see that she was in need for so much more than just yard work. Before the day was done, they decided that they would be back once a month to help her with pressure washing, painting her deck, and expand on the yard work, all in preparation for her to sell her house. In addition, they will be providing meals for her in the coming weeks.
It seems that God knew all along what Betty needed and exactly who would be the right fit to be His hands and feet in her life.
