What a privilege it is to share that the need of water for a single mom that we shared yesterday has not only been funded, but the work was completed today! We are truly thankful to Allied Plumbing for putting it at the top of their to-do list and for braving the heat to restore water to "Mary."
Here is a quick recap of today from Mark & Tiffany (Siloam Springs Laundry Love Coordinators)...
Today we had the joy of seeing the second half of the miracle take place.
We are still amazed that yesterday (in 8 hours) the total repair cost was raised to help our dear friend restore clean water for her family.
In the blistering heat the plumbing crew gave "Mary" both clean water and an unforgettable message that she is loved and valued by our community.
Here are some pictures from the repair work, and you can clearly see the damage to the water line & the root that had caused the problem.
As we watched the repairs together, her hope was being renewed with each new section of pipe. She leaned over to me, and she looked with grateful eyes to simply say...
"I have no words, THANK YOU!"
To all of those that made this possible, we could not be more grateful. You demonstrated your love for those that are the most vulnerable in our community, and you have restored hope. Grace & peace to you and your families.
Our Northwest Arkansas community continues to demonstrate the true extent of their love in so many ways. We are honored to be able to watch this story unfold, and regardless of whatever difficulty may lie ahead we will always be know by our love.
May God continue to bless.
