LCC received a request from Pastor Jorge Mazariegos, Vida y Fe Evangelical Lutheran Church, West Dundee, Illinois:
We are asking for your financial support for our dear friend and community volunteer, Sam. Sam helps provide for her mom and two younger siblings. They have come into financial trouble within the last few months and were unexpectedly evicted from their home. They are living in a hotel for now. Sam and her mother are the only ones in the family who can work, so they cannot afford the hotel long-term.
At this time, her dad is seeking employment after being on long-term disability for the past year and a half. They have been looking for housing since they were displaced, but given many of the potential living options will not be available to them until early November so they are stuck with the costs of hotel rates while they try and put together money for a deposit. They are in a one-room hotel with two beds while her brother sleeps on an air mattress. They hope to find a home soon but still need $1,000 to provide safe housing for their family.
Thank you for your prayers and for considering contributing to Sam’s family.
