We visited a single mum with six children and one grandchild living together in a small house.


The referral was for a single bed for one of the children which we had brought with us. We had a long chat with mum and were told that the washing machine door was broken. The children's clothes had to be washed in the bath, at the laundrette or by a kindly friend. The mum was dreading Christmas as she had no presents for the children.


We asked if we could pray with her; the answer "Oh yes, please do".

Later more bad news was received from her support worker who advised us that the cooker had broken too.


Don't try to understand, just trust.


We had received an electric cooker which we delivered. But, no news on a washing machine.


It was 22nd December and we received a call from Dorking Besom; a Bosch washing machine was available in good condition and they offered to load it in the van and help with delivery and plumbing. This happened straight away and the family were delighted with the washing machine which was much quieter than the old one. The last laundrette bill had been £80.


Some toys had been donated to Besom which we delivered in a sack for mum to wrap up, and another team member delivered food coupons.


God had answered the prayers for this family in his way and his timing, the message was crystal clear.


Don't try to understand, just trust.

If you would like to help, and witness God's work we would love to hear from you.
