Widow Faces Homelessness

Left With Husbands Debt She Faces Homelessness

A widow came to us for help after her husband passed away. Instead of leaving her with an inheritance that would care for her needs to the end of her days, he left her with a large debt that would result in her losing even the roof over her head if there was no intervention. Being elderly and alone, the threatening phone calls from the banks rained down stress and fear on her shoulders and she didn’t know what to do. Her plea gripped our hearts, “Is there anything you can do to help me?”

We were moved with compassion for this widow on God’s heart. We began to look for donations and support. In God’s mercy, He provided several donors that gave considerable amounts of money, enough to present a case to the bank. We went together to plead her cause and won! Through our negotiations with the bank, and presenting the gifts that the donors provided, this widow has one less sorrow in her heart. She will not be homeless.

When we left the bank, she cried and said to us with excitement, “I am amazed by what just happened.”

God is always fighting for justice for the widow and is always caring for their good. We were first hand witnesses of how God moved swiftly to answer our prayers and this widow’s cry for help.

“Now, will not God bring about justice for His elect who cry to Him day and night, and will He delay long over them? I tell you that He will bring about justice for them quickly.” –Luke 18:7-8a
