A Roof For Ronnie


I don’t often stop to realize the value of a door. Ronnie is a kind 77 year old who has has some hard knocks in his life. He has no family left in this world and found himself on the streets, eating at soup kitchens and looking for a job. He does not drink or do drugs. We met him at the Cold Weather shelter 2 days before it was closing for the season. He had no place to go. We took him to the Boston Inn and got him a room for the night. Ronnie told me that he is “feeling human” again. To be able to shut a door, and lock it and know that your phone and wallet will not be stolen. To have a hot shower, a nice mattress and a real pillow and to actually be able to relax and not be waking up to look over your shoulder all night.

He has been able to have dreams again of people he has loved and lost, like his wife. Every time I talk to him he says “I don’t know what to say.” I’m just praising God for His mercy and love. All of you are being so kind to me. I don’t like to bother people.” Each of you who have responded are a part of this move of the love of God and I’m overwhelmed to see the outpouring!


Please pray and spread the word to find a little room for Ronnie to rent! This fund for “A Roof for Ronnie” and for personal and medical needs until he can get back on his feet.

I see that God has opened your hearts to love this dear soul and to be a part of his rescue. Trust me- it truly is humbling to feel his gratitude.

When we all have so much Ronnie makes me see the little things are the big things. And that the only things that really matter are things you cannot see- like Love, truth and kindness. Thank you for being such a community of love!
