Phone card for homeless man - 10/2/14

There is a homeless man from Summerville has been helped in the past by Change for a Dollar.  He was very appreciative of past help and as a result his faith has continued to grow.  As his faith grew he asked those who were in his phone contacts if he could share a daily devotional / periodic bible verses with them.  He has been doing that for the past couple of months.  This past month he was unable to come up with the funds to pay his monthly phone charges and notified his contacts he would be stopping his texts as a result of termination of phone service.   Ashley Ridge Church Change for a Dollar anonymously paid his monthly charges – he texted his appreciation and his devotional texts continues.

Amount: Boost Mobile - $49
