Thanks to all who have donated to help Alexis and his family as they wait for his bone marrow surgery!
We mailed a check to Dorcas last week for this family for $12,550! I wanted to give everyone an update on where things are to date. This family needs to have a total of $39,000 (a year’s living expenses for this family of 6) saved before the hospital will schedule the surgery.
- Dorcas has committed $10,000 towards this goal to completely cover their rent for 1 year
- There has been another $1,000 given from another congregation.
- Genesis’ gift of $12,550
- They still need $15,450 in order to reach the total amount.
If you haven’t given yet but were thinking about it, please send in your gift either by check written to Genesis with Kingswood Family in the memo line or on Easy tithe using the Dorcas ministry fund.
There will also be a sign up genius document coming with needs for the family once the surgery has been scheduled. I will share this information with you once I have heard from the person putting it together. Thank you so much for showering this family with your love and prayers!!!
