I wrote last week about Liz and Katy Hughes, a mom and her daughter who were evicted from their apartment and were living in their car. I have never been more proud of my brothers and sisters in Christ. We have rallied around this mom and daughter in their time of need and helped them on the road to get back on their feet. What a blessing for those of us able to help. And an honor.
Liz and Katy were even featured on the local news here last week and will be interviewed on Good Morning America sometime next week. To read the updates on Brandilyn Collin's blog and Katy's blog, Anywhere But Here, is amazing. God is so good!
My own family has been blessed in a special way in this. Many of you know my daughter, Leslie, was diagnosed with a brain tumor last October and had to undergo two surgical procedures. She's about to start her third week of radiation and is doing great. Leslie reached out to Katy, wanting to get to know another teen facing adversity. This is such a godsend, because Leslie hasn't wanted to reach out like this in a while. She was so excited to get an email back from Katy, and I hope we can meet them soon. Such a blessing!
Please keep Liz and Katy in your prayers. Liz needs a job, and not for lack of trying. She's been looking for three years. Hopefully a lead she has to a job will pan out in the next week or so, and they can find an affordable place to live.
