An officer and member of our family of faith was assaulted at home last night in Rockford. It happened not long after midnight; and we talked and prayed not long after that and he is doing well and buoyed by his faith.
Because of his deep faith, we talked of the horrifying experience within the context of Romans 8:28; and reached a similar conclusion that our Lord may be leading him to relocate closer to the church because of his heart's desire to make our gathering room increasingly available to folks suffering from the elements, needing a place to meet with other believers, and increasing our call to be a beacon and safe haven for Jesus.
So we are looking for something - an apartment or shared residency or something akin to that - with his consent for me to say he has budgeted $500+ a month for rent.
If you know of something, please let us know asap.
Blessings and Love!
