During November, we had a request from a 62 year old woman, “Mary” who had a leaky roof. Though she was promised a repair by another organization, the help was not going to come for another 4 months. When Mary gave our helpline a call, we sent an e-mail to the churches in her area. Within 2 days, we had a response from a volunteer at Puyallup Community Baptist Church. The very next day, he fixed Mary’s roof.
Mary was so thrilled with the immediate response, that she called Bridges of Love back that night to thank us for sending him out. Further, she called the volunteer’s wife to thank her for letting her husband come and serve that day!
