On May 4 th, there was a 4 alarm fire in our neighborhood. 300 people lost their homes. Alessia and her girls, adreanna and angelina were among them. We met Alessia through our friend who was the first at the shelter to meet alessia from our church. She called us and that night Alessia and her girls came home with us to live.

For those who would like to continue in their efforts to serve the victims of the fire in the St. John’s neighborhood, a site has been set up to inform you of ongoing needs and is capable of receiving online donations. Many of the families are moving into new apartments this week and, having lost everything, need help to get started again in their new residences.
The site is http://stjohnrelief.com/.
Donations will continue to be accepted at Iglesia Centro Familiar Ebenezer this week.
