Thanks for praying for and
In response to the need below, we have received at least twenty (20) calls or emails.
We have secured a trundle bed, kitchen items, cookwear, flatware, dishes, clothes for the two girls and commitments for gift cards. No further clothing items are needed.
Anyone desiring to help may consider a gift card to Kohls (for clothes for Kim) or Shoprite (for needed food)
Thank you so much for this outpouring of love.
Her mother and sister refused her help because they insist that she abort. She believes this child is from God and will not ends his life.
She has been brave and resolute during this very difficult situation. We believe that God has sent her to Gateway as a 'divine appointment'.
She is still legally married to the girls father.
Her husband is a Seventh Day Adventist missionary. He and Kim have traveled the world doing missions work. Her husband (and his father before him) are pedophiles.
She and the girls have been devastated. Kim is totally against 'oraganized religion' but not against God. She still prays and reads the Bible, but won't attend a church.
When challenged about her eternal destiny, Kim said 'That's a good question'. We believe that the 'kindness of God' will lead her to repentance (Romans 2:4).
Kim had a regular job before becoming pregnant. She baby sits while the girls are in school.
She is quite needy but appreciative and upbeat.
She believes God has been looking out for her.
Please pray that Kim trust Christ as Savior and Lord. We are in regular contact with her and have visited the small, one room studio she shares with the girls.
Kim is due to have a baby boy on April 11th. Pray for wisdom as she has decided to parent this baby. Pray that Kim see the person of Jesus and trust Him alone for salvation.
She really could use an older female as a 'mentor' and some are considering this as well.
We are sharing with Kim from these excellent resources:
