Rewiring a house to bring children home

Pulling new wiringGod works in amazing ways. One recent way was through a local electrician and several friends from local churches. The CALL in Baxter County was made aware from a DCFS Case Worker of a family that needed some major rewiring of their home in order for their children to return home from foster care.

Installing new power conduitThe family was very discouraged because they were told it was a significant problem and would cost well above anything they would be able to pay. One of our respite families happened to see the post on our FB page about the need and felt passionate about making it happen. Kaytie Kelley and her husband, Ryan, recruited Josh Thompson, with Thompson Electric, Wirt McKee, Eric Rushing, and Russell Tucker and they got the entire job DONE for FREE for the family. Our local Home Depot was amazing and donated some of the supplies as well! Not only was physical light brought to this biological families home but also the team was able to pray over the family as well and bring the most important light of all our Savior Jesus Christ. We received a thank you note from the biological family with precious words of their thanks.

Working to restore families can happen in many forms. God can and does use people and many situations to bring glory to Him. We are thankful The CALL in Baxter County was able to help facilitate and witness this amazing work He did through His people.
