I guess you would call this a true trifecta of blessings!  At Agape House of Prescott, three families were able to move into a place to call ‘Home’ last month.

When I look at these pictures of their new homes, I can only imagine the ‘Before’ and ‘After’ conversation of the children and family members.

Before:  “Mom, I don’t have anything for a pillow.” …. “That’s okay son, you can share my backpack with me.”

After:  “I have my own bed and it has two pillows of my very own!”

. . .

Before:  “Mom, I am hungry.” …. “I have a little roll left from the soup kitchen you can have half of.”

After:  “Wow, the refrigerator is full of food, there is ice, and the juice is cold!”

. . .

Above are conversations that I envisioned in my head.  Below are two actual comments from families after they moved into their own home:

A young boy sees his own room, actually his own bed, for the first time.Furthermore, the blankets & sheets had been selected prayerfully for this young boy with airplanes on it.    His response was priceless:

“I have my own bed and it has airplanes on it!”. . . “Can you believe how good God is?”

In talking with an Agape House Mother about completing our program and getting her own house, her response . . . “It was hard and it was a lot of work, but at that moment it was all worth it.”
