This young man holds a special place in our hearts, his name is Jesus. Hardworking and kind, but found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time while on a day trip to San Francisco, where he got mugged and badly beaten up by a gang. This took him out of work for a while and he got behind on his rent, facing eviction. Thanks to our donors we were able to prevent homelessness for him and cover the rent expenses!
Jesus is now working again and able to sustain himself. He is so grateful to our volunteers and donors who were there for him when he needed it the most. His positive attitude and smile are contagious! "I just wanted to thank you again for being there for me when I needed it the most, I'm so grateful!"
We have known Johnny for over 6 years now, he frequents our outreaches and has been a regular and wonderful contributor at our Bible studies. He has become a good friend to many of our volunteers. We had the privilege to walk alongside Johnny as he came out of addiction and overcame so many life obstacles.
Johnny had already received a huge miracle about 5 years ago, when he got miraculously healed after we prayed over him! The doctors gave him a very grim prognosis when they found many blood clots in his lungs, only to find a month later that all the clots miraculously dissipated, thanks be to God!
Last month through CityServe and Livermore Housing Authority, Johnny got an amazing opportunity for an apartment. We are so excited and grateful that our friend will be starting a new chapter of his life! We helped him move in and furnished his place along with our partner ministry Tri-Valley Seek & Save. He is now adjusting to having his own place after a long time of surviving on the streets. He still frequents our Bible studies and is helping others who are struggling!

We met Cristina through a referral from a local domestic violence shelter. After losing her job, Cristina got behind on her bills, including her car, which got repossessed. In the meantime, she was proactively searching for a new job, and she got an amazing employment opportunity.
But she again faced a big obstacle, she desperately needed her vehicle back in order to make it to her new job. In the meantime, Cristina was taking two buses to work every day, working 6 days a week and taking care of her daily errands at the shelter. She knew this schedule was not going to be sustainable, especially knowing that she only had room in the shelter until October.
We started working on a plan to get her car back, and because of your donations we were able to cover the fees. We also wanted to help her get her own housing, which she shortly found after she got her car back! We were able to help her move into her apartment and helped furnish the place.
Cristina's life was so miraculously touched in such a short period of time! Just a couple months ago she was jobless, carless, living in a shelter, wondering how to get out of this situation. She is so grateful for the support she received from our volunteers and donors, who gave her the resources to get back on her feet!
