Safe Families rescues children from difficult circumstances while also supporting moms struggling to straighten out life.  They spoke to our church a few weeks back and many of our people wanted to help. This week two kiddoes, 6 and 3 were picked up by Rob and Tonia. The kids had nothing but the clothes on their backs with no socks or undergarments. The water and electricity in their home has been off for many months. You can imagine the nutrition and hygiene obstacles that caused. 

Now is our chance to respond together with the love of Jesus. There are financial needs for clothing and other items. There are some transportation and additional babysitting hours which will need help to cover. Please contact Tonia@streetwisespokane.org if you can help in any way!

To answer some questions. 1, Dad went to prison last year, mom was unemployed so she took in boarders which went from bad to worse with drugs and violence. The boarders now contribute nothing. She isn't strong enough emotionally or physically to remove them. She owns the home which has turned into a very bad environment, but she can't up and leave because its her place. Safe families is working with her separately. 2. Foster homes are backed up. CPS can't find homes for some 300 others now. They've literally had kids stay in their office overnight for lack of homes to send them. Safe Families is like long term babysitting where mom still retains parental rights. Once the kiddos end up in foster care usually parental rights are gone and the state takes custody. It can be a long, long process to ever get them back. 3. Unlike foster care, there is no financial assistance for people who take in safe families kiddos. This is why we are asking the church network to come around and support with donations to purchase shoes, clothing and such, as well as to donate items (toys books etc). Additional babysitting hours are needed to give the host family a break now and then.

What are the approximate sizes needed?

Hi Deanna, the boy is a 4t and the girl is a 6T.

Contact Tonia@streetwisespokane.org to see about making a charitable donation to help. We'd like to remind folks that the host family could use some help with expenses for clothing, car seats, etc. The call to pick up the kids came as a surprise they weren't prepared for, but it was very much as an urgent need.

So much cool stuff happens every day at the Gathering House. I came by today, Saturday, to do some work and I find these awesome women here from 11am-2pm Bible Journaling.

I just found out that what they do is they pick a verse from a Bible they have brought specifically chosen for artistic expression on the page being discussed. Then they discuss the verse and meditate on it and then express themselves artistically on the page with the verse.

Inspiring!!

Been meditating on these verses from Ephesians 3 since Sunday's message . . . . 14 "For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." ...
