Love INC mobilizes churches to transform lives and communities In the Name of Christ. Today, we’re active in 134 communities in 29 states. Love INC National supports the development and growth of each location to show and share the love of Christ and make an impact on their community. We are a part of many Love (INC) Stories…stories like Christina and the hope she found from our Merced, California location and the church they mobilized to help families and individuals in the community.
Christina was 8 months pregnant when she became homeless. In a time that should have been filled with joy and expectation, she found herself facing huge challenges. She felt hopeless, invisible and unimportant. In search of a fresh start, she moved to a new town…where she found Yosemite Church.
She soon realized the immense care that God has for her and her daughter, which spurred her on to ask for prayer and help. Two women from Love INC of Greater Merced came around her and showed love in action… finding her lodging, food and sharing a meal together. Christina felt alone for so long but soon had a weight lifted and felt accepted into God’s family.
With encouragement and support through Love INC’s network of churches, Christina started a new job, found an apartment and began school to pursue her dream of auto mechanics. Church volunteers supplied items to set up the apartment and make it a home. Christina was also baptized and dedicated her daughter.
Christina is excited about the future and all that God has in store for her and her daughter. “I want to show my daughter what a strong, godly woman is. I want the best future for my daughter and to show her what she is capable of, to show her perseverance, joy and kindness.
