This morning a young woman came to our house asking for help. Normally our procedure before we offer assistance to anyone, is that we want to visit their home and talk with them to access their needs.
In the afternoon we visited with Cindy and her 6 year old son Christian. They live in a 16ft x 20ft tin shack with 9 other family members. Their portion of the shack is designated to a 8ft x 8ft area sectioned off with blankets and sheets. That area holds all her worldly possessions consisting of a full size bed for her and her son and their clothes. Cindy is a single mom in her early twenties. Christians father left them years ago. Christian is a special needs little boy. He doesn’t talk and kind of gives an empty stare. Although when Terry rubbed his back and cupped his face with her hands he offered a brief smile. Cindy needs to keep cloth wrapped around Christians hands all the time because he chews on them. He still wears diapers and although he can walk he cannot go outside unattended, therefore he spends most of his time in their shack. Cindy works whenever or wherever she can to buy food for them, but lately it has been harder to find work that does not conflict with the care of her son. They are in desperate need of your help and prayers. I am writing to you to ask for just that. We would like to help her with food, diapers, medicine when needed and any other essentials they might need. This is a family that we will be staying in close contact with as they live very near to some our friends and music students.
