We are raising money for the Lavigne Family who is working on immigration from Canada. Please help them out while they wait for their paperwork goes through.
Fundraiser for Lavigne Family
For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.Galatians 5:13
Meet the Lavignes, Todd and Crystal, along with their five children. Since their arrival here from Canada, 11 months ago, they’ve faced numerous difficulties, from sickness to vehicle issues. The main cause of their monetary difficulties has been the employment restrictions they have faced while their immigration status has been on hold. Paperwork that used to go through in a matter of weeks is now taking months (or longer!) due to Covid-related slowdowns. It has been a trial of faith for their whole family.
Despite all this, the family has continued to hold fast. The Lavignes have been a blessing to many whom they have met, especially at the Oak Grove branch where they attend. They’ve trusted in God for provision and He has cared for them.
Now, we would like to provide an opportunity for the church to be the hands and feet of Jesus. There are some monumental expenses coming up for their family and just living here without the ability to earn a regular income has depleted their savings. They heard from the lawyer this week that the money required over the next few months will total $31,000. That is on top of the hospital bills, a trip to California to renew driver’s licenses (MO won’t renew if you’re not a resident, but CA will), and all the regular costs of having a family of seven.
We ask that you open your hearts and ask the Lord how you could help the Lavigne family. Our fundraising goal is $40,000. It feels like a large amount, but nothing is too big for the Lord. Every donation will help get to that goal.
