  2. I am a friend of rashanda and she referred me to your church for help. Me, my fiance, and our 1 year old are currently homeless and in search of help. I am also 7 months pregnant. It’s hard going through these things when we have nothing but eachother. We pray everynight for a change to come and we know something will. I have talked to the homeless coalition and they have told me that i need some type of proof saying i have funds in order for me to move in to a stable home. We do not have any family, dhelters are being called everyday and i don’t want to be on the streets with my children. I would like to ask if you could donate to our gofundme account: gofundme.com/vbtb9qv3 and also share this to anyone whom you may know. Meand my family thought we were recieving help from people when really they were exploiting us and all because people think we are down right now that we have no knowledge. But we are intellegent people, we are just waiting for that blessing to come. Please be that blessing for my family. Thankyou and God Bless.
