The other side of the story
Last week I shared the success of the Rainbow Acres vision, and how fortunate those are who live there. Today I stopped to see a family that had been part of the church I served a decade ago The family have various mental, emotional, and physical handicaps and with the passing of parents they are fending for themselves with a lot of governmental aid.
We all helped as much as we could, but both families have merged in that little trailer and it is meager.
I asked about their diet and she said, mostly mac and chess and hotdogs. Years ago they had a new mobile home but lost it, and things have been poverty level since then. Very sad, but they are doing the best they can.
