Recently, we were able to share in the joy of success with one of our clients.

This client had been coming to Urban Ministries for awhile.  Both she and her husband lost their jobs over a year ago.  They have three teenage boys and having enough money for groceries was a daunting task.

Over the year I watched this family struggle as they sold their home and cars to get away from overwhelming payments.  They moved into a rental and bought a used car that was old – but paid for.  They lived on the unsteady income of odd jobs and temp work.  That day, the client needed food to tide them over.  As we talked she told me that her husband had just gotten a full time job but it would be three weeks before he got a paycheck.  While she sat there her phone buzzed and she glanced down at the text message.  I watched her eyes tear up as she looked at me and said that she had just gotten a job.  She held up the phone for me to see.  We took her to the clothes closet and got her some clothes for work.  When her food order came out, we hugged.
