Visiting Those in Need:
Many blessings are coming Beacon House way this last month. We were able to open San Bernardino County's first home for men with children April 1st 2010, and a new women's home! We see God working in the lives of the families everyday. We have received some wonderful donations, as well as some financial ones. EVERYTHING that comes Beaon House way is a fulfillnent of God's promise to be a faithful servant. Pastor Lara has been holding bible study weekly at one of our women's homes. The women love her teaching, and look forward to her arrival every week. Thank you also to Lori Clayton for coming to help with childcare during the studies. We still are a volunteer ministry, with no paid staff. We are blessed to be able to make a difference for everyone who enters our doors. Thank you to the congregation of Lutheran Church of the Cross for it's wondrful support, donations, and love you send our way. You are all truly doing God's work. Always,
Barbara Horzen and Susie Bowman
