From The Field

Hello bed. Goodbye floor.

Many of us take lying in our beds every night for granted, not knowing what it feels like to not have a bed. This precious little girl was so excited to have a bed to lay in tonight. She was sleeping on a mattress on the floor before Fully Furnished Ministries volunteers visited her home and blessed her with a bed of her own.

After the delivery of the furniture for the family, the grandfather of the girl and I had a conversation about all that is going on in Venezuela and how they are having to flee the country. Seven of his kids are in different states across America. Though they are thankful to be here in the US, it is a tough road for them. We spoke as if we had known each other for quite some time as he opened up and shared his heart. This ministry is truly a blessing for me and so many.

Join with us in praying for this family and other refugee families who are far from home, building new lives in new places and without much to make their place feel like a real home.

Beautiful gratitude.

We were privileged recently to share the love of Christ with two immigrant families in need. Both families are headed by single moms with small children, and arrived in the U.S. with next to nothing.

Francismar arrived 5 months ago from Venezuela with her two children. We were blessed to provide each of the children with a bed and beautiful bedding. Francismar told us ". . . ya tengo las camas conmigo mis hijos estan felices y mi hija pequena esta mas feliz muchisimas gracias dios se lo pague estamos muy felices." Thank you is beautiful in every language!

Yanina recently arrived from Guatemala with her two children. Because of the generosity of our Fully Furnished Ministries family, we were able to provide Yanina and her family with a dining table and chairs, plates, pots and pans, 2 dressers, a tv stand, and these two beds with bedding. Yanina is extremely grateful for these gifts from God. She says, "Gracias en hombre de mi familia y el mio propio agradecida con todas las peraonas que recibieramos este donativo. Dios les bendiga grandemente." Yes, gratitude truly is beautiful in every language!
