We have been praying that GOD would send us someone to help us with the community center, somebody with experience in guiding and educating youth and teenagers. About a month ago a woman sat next to Brian in his northwest suburban church and he quickly learned she had traveled all the way from 110th and Morgan in Chicago. Marsha Eaglin introduced herself and in discussion Brian found that she was the executive director and founder of a ministry called Impact Family Center. This ministry’s focus is youth and teenagers in the Roseland community. Thank you GOD!
A few weeks later while Marsha and Brian were meeting at Shepherd’s Hope discussing how she could bring her expertise to our community in Englewood, she mentioned the need of a family who had four girls that were part of her ministry. Marsha shared the story of this single mom with 6 daughters and one grandchild living in a house for over 2 months with no heat or hot water. They were desperately looking for a new place to live. Brian offered the name of a friend who had a beautiful 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath house for rent.
Some weeks later, Brian was attending an event at Impact Family Center in Roseland. A young lady shared her testimony with tears running down her cheeks explaining that Miss Marsha had found their family a beautiful house with heat and hot water so they could take showers again after living for over 2 months without heat and hot water.
Brian, realizing that this was the family Marsha and he had talked about, put his head down, holding back the tears and saying, “Thank you GOD! Thank you GOD!
