A Need

I have been following a young couple for some time now as they courted, married and began the road to parenthood. Their sweet baby boy was born prematurely and had to stay in the hospital for 3 months.

The Zimmermans have incurred large medical bills and are truly trusting God to provide. They are Christians that believe the church is to care for its own. In fact, and this is what motivated me to donate, they will not accept government aid. A quote from Tait Zimmerman, "after careful consideration, prayer, and much counsel, we came to the decision to rely on God's approved method for meeting social needs: voluntary action and community". "We truly believe in Christian community. We believe that Christian community is the single most effective way to meet the real needs we face around us".

Go over to the website and read their story. Give if you can and certainly pray for this sweet young family.
