New Year, New Blessings
There is never a dull moment at Friendship House, and Christmas is no exception. We celebrated the Holiday Season with our families. One lady said that she was thankful to have a family to spend the holidays with. Thanks to those who adopted our families, moms were able to have gifts for their kids to open Christmas day and even for themselves too!
We rung in the New Year with a big movie night complete with pillow fight with the kids. We watched the fireworks from the porch and then called it a night...or morning.
Our families are doing well. Most have jobs and are working on saving their money. The kids are doing well in school. One is getting ready to start college!
Please continue to pray for our families as they work to save their money to transition in to a home of their own. Also pray for the staff to continue to be sensitive to God's calling and direction in the ministry.
Pray for our city as we seek to find ways to minister to the need. There have been many changes. Changes in the city and ministries has made us more aware that God is up to something big. We appreciate you choosing to be a partner in the ministry here at BFH and in New Orleans.
