Today’s Chance to Do a Work of Mercy
From: visitation mission <email@example.com> Date: Tue, May 1, 2012 at 3:05 PM Subject: help for a pregnant mom To: Dear Co-Workers,
We are currently serving a young woman who is courageously choosing life despite early temptations to have an abortion. She already has two young children and is fighting off pressures from the father of the baby and friends to have an abortion. In recent months this young woman has returned to the sacraments and is striving to change her life and trust in the Lord’s plan for her.
Unfortunately, she is now in the last stages of eviction by her landlord. In these last few days he has, however, agreed to write a letter for her, which is needed for her application to receive public assistance for subsidized housing. She would be able to stay in the apartment with this assistance. The letter it is contingent upon her paying the landlord $600, which she will owe him to cover what preferential rent will not pay. This is in order to cover the balance for three months ($200 each month). We are very happy to reach this agreement.
Now, we are trying to raise the funds for this young woman and are hoping to do so soon. Any support you might be able to offer would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much for your prayers and generosity.
In Christ Our Life,
Sr. Grace Dominic, S.V.
