Need a Frig

Robyn and Surmier have finally found a new apartment to move into.  Praise God!  They need a refrigerator for their new apartment.  Anyone have an extra one?

Housing Needed from August to December

This is an email/phone call Kevin received from Amy and Jon (they gave permission to list their need on our site):

My husband, Jon, and I will be moving to Los Angeles from Columbus, OH on August 22 to begin the Master of Arts in Transformational Urban Leadership program through Azusa Pacific. We have been struggling with finding housing and were hoping that your church might be able to help us out. Our biggest challenge is that we will only be in LA for one semester August - December because the majority of the program we will be doing missions work overseas. Because of this we have not been able to find an affordable landlord to lease short-term. At this point we are praying for anything to open up since we'll be there in 2 weeks! The one key thing is that wherever we stay, we need to be able to get to the downtown campus of APU (near Wilshire and Normandie) via public transportation as we won't have a car. 

Jon and I have been married for 8 months. We graduated from The Ohio State University in 2011. Jon studied construction management and I studied social work. We have both felt God calling us to ministry to the urban poor for the past couple of years and are very excited about this next step in our lives! 

I cannot express how much we appreciate your help. 

Amy and Jon Hennin
