Here and Now devo Nov 24

ISAIAH 58:7-8 | 7Is it not to share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover them and not to hide yourself from your own kin? 8 Then your light shall break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up quickly; your vindicator shall go before you; the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
What we give and do here at VPC helps Family Promise deal with homelessness in the Valley. Family Promise now has three networks of churches that help hundreds of families move from the street into housing, all at one-third the cost and half the time of a regular shelter. In addition, they have short stay recovery days for single people, they work with landlords to help families avoid eviction, and they are developing a new effort to provide affordable housing.
Pray for Family Promise, for Ted Taylor the Director, and for our own Keith Kerber, Director of Development.
