My name is Loveness Aaron. I am a 49-year-old and part of Singles Ministry and I have been a disciple for 24 years. I live in Mabvuku, a high-density suburb in Harare, Zimbabwe. I live with my mother, my aunt, my cousin's daughter, and her young child.

I'm HIV positive and in addition I have high blood pressure. Since I don’t have a job and some of the medicine at the clinics are not free, I typically need money to pay for both food and my medications. Only ARVS (Antiretroviral) services are given for free and all others we pay for ourselves.

I am seeking your assistance to help with my needs. Your support would greatly appreciate.

The Lara family lives in Nicaragua. They have been disciples for more than 30 years combined. As it stands, Nicaragua remains the most underdeveloped nation in Latin America so the job availability has been scarce for a long time. After the pandemic, Nicaragua's economy has remained hard hit and their recovery has been much slower than other neighboring countries.

The Lara family recently welcomed their third child, and although they are delighted to have a new baby in the home, but they are worried about the additional expenses that come along with the joys of parenting an infant.

The Lara family is currently seeking your help to keep their family fed and purchase basic needs for their baby while they seek better paying and stable employment.

In 2019, Lebanon's once healthy economy was dismantled due to a series of political issues that unfolded right before the onset of the COVID pandemic. It is estimated that the currency in Lebanon has lost 95% of it's value. For the average person, that means that an average wage of $900 per month is now worth less than $50. The demand for goods and the cost for essentials is sky-high, but securing even the most basic of needs extremely difficult.

The disturbance in the Lebanon has caused many other countries in the region to suffer similar economic distress and many brothers and sisters are experiencing hardships.

Greetings, my name is María del Rosario, I am 54 years old, I have been a faithful disciple for 23 years, I have lived in Nuevo León for a few years, we changed residence to find better employment opportunities, but my husband had an accident and hurt his leg which has made it impossible for him to get better work. He is still working, but his salary is very low and we struggle to make ends meet. We are still working on applying for disability benefits for us, but the state has still not approved our application.

At the moment, we find ourselves truly in need because we were infected with COVID and there is an active water supply issue in our country that has driven up the prices for our groceries and other essentials.

Your support for our family would bring us immeasurable hope and relief in this time of great need. Thank you so much in advance for your love and support!

On January 14, 2018 I was baptized in the international church of Christ in León Mexico. I have known the church since I was 7 years old. My parents were baptized in León and I grew up with the church family. However, it wasn't until I was 23 years old that I decided to give my life to Christ. With the passage of time, God allowed me to move to the city of Tepic, where I have been able to serve and meet my family in Christ; as well as start a process of independence. I currently participate in the singles and praise ministry for which I am very thankful to God and the brothers for allowing me to serve them.
However, due to the pandemic it has been difficult for me to find a job, which is why I have had difficulty meeting my expenses. Thank God I was able to buy a motorcycle to be able to work as a food delivery man, but two weeks ago I had an accident. By the grace of God I am in good health, although the motorcycle that was my source of income has been damaged. It still works, but it's not safe to drive. I have had the opportunity to support myself by teaching English, but my income is limited by the hours I teach, I am requesting your support as I work to find a different job so that I cover my basic expenses.
I thank you for the consideration and love you have shown the brothers for your good heart willing to help. With love in Christ - Gerardo

I want to tell you the story of our brother Mario Laparra. He is 43 years old, married, and a father of 4 daughters. He has been a disciple for 20 faithful years and loves God and his church. On May 10, 2022, he was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Failure. They send him to Guatemala City, which is 4 hours away from Xela, to start his kidney treatment which he has to complete every 11 days. Expenses for treatments and medication are beginning to become very expensive for him and his family. Due to the status of his health, his wife is the only one who is able to work for the moment and it has become a very big burden for her to carry on her own.

Your support for this loving family at this very challenging moment would mean the world to them!

Thank you and God Bless!
