Funds Needed for Leaky Roof

Capital Vision Christian Church is reaching out to help an elderly couple on social security with a replacement for their leaking roof…

They put tar-paper and tarps on over a year ago, now that fix is failing. They are desperate. Cost will be $12,000. so far there is a commitment of $5,000K, and another individual has volunteered $500. So $6,500 is needed.

If you want to help, you can donate through to “LOVE FUND” or  Text “give” to (425) 999-3306. If you have questions contact Bruce Sanders at or (360) 402-0520.

Please up-lift them in prayer that the Lord will supply this need.
