"Monday's Upcoming Meeting"

Last week Maxine, a lady we work with often, had contacted me about having another meeting. Although I enjoy our meetings, in some ways I had become discouraged because the turn outs have been few. She had been talking to many of the people who work, but have nowhere to live and agreed that banded together, we can make a difference in the community! Which is ironic since I had just received an email from our Senator who recently won the elections in our area stating "Thanks for all your encouragement. Now, let's see if we can do some good for the community!" So God's Will was for a meeting. Then later in the week, the meeting took a turn for greater news. Our NPO status came through and we could move forward in requesting a building as a shelter.

I immediately contacted the media, who have been waiting to break this story and said "time to go to press! Are you ready for our story?" Although we have had media coverage in the past, now we can at least announce we are legitimate and it isn't just us any longer, but a force of people who have all come together for the love and concern of the homeless, the poor, and the needy. God has brought us all together by His guiding hand. We are made up of people who have been homeless, law makers, ministers, volunteers and concerned citizens; we are Williamsburg's Homeless & Indigent, Inc.
