Happy New Year!!!
The start of a new year, it will be a good one! I came to Focus & there was Martha, Lynda, Joan & Frank also Fred came a little latter & painted part of my office wall, thank you Fred!!! We all were very busy today. So many people in need.......
I went to the Post Office & the copier didn't work so I had to go to the office & print them out on our printer & Lynda took me to the bank to deposit them all. Thank you everyone!!! I was busy in the office & all the team were busy out in the Main Room!! So much to do!!

It was a day of bad men. Sorry to say that because we have nothing but good men come into Focus to receive the help that they needed. But today was different, unfortunately.
The first man is the boyfriend of our pregnant client Miss T. who came in for a pregnancy test & was scheduled to go to Compass Care of an ultrasound the very same day but didn't. He is the father of this baby & four other children, with her, but the man is not with it at all. I called many times to talk to Miss T but he wouldn't give her the phone & then when I called days latter he hung up on me twice. I really don't know if she's still pregnant. He came in to get diapers & I spoke sternly to him. One of our volunteers said that when he came in she smelled Marijuana on him, she is an Registered Nurse. I gave him the diapers & he left & he texted me an unkind text.......scary. I did not respond for he pretended to be Miss T.. So sad!!
Then the other man was unkind to Martha. I was in the office & heard what he was saying to her & I got up from my chair & told him he had to leave, as he was going down the stairs, or I would call 911. Hopefully we will not see them again unless they get better. Please God please!!
Otherwise it was a fruitful day helping people in need & they were all grateful.

It was a good day, for I had Martha with me, & Linda came latter on to help. We saw many nice clients that appreciated what we were doing for them. The smile on their faces is priceless.
I worked in the office that looks so much better now for we have put many things away & it looks less messy. Thank you to all who helped me especially Bobbie, she was wonderful.
I went to Holy Hour, at St. Joseph's Church, in the evening instead of the late morning before Focus, it's much more quieter & I did miss the people that were there. It's been awhile.

Early this morning I received a phone call from a young woman who said that her boyfriend & his mother wants her to have an abortion but she doesn't want to. Praise God to hear that. She needed lots of support & we talked for awhile. I called her this afternoon & asked if Jessica could call her to talk to her & she said "yes". Grate!! She was headed to the doctors for she was in pain. She is under so much stress. I told her to call me anytime day or night & to keep in touch & she said that she would. She sounds like a very nice girl. She is working & has her own apartment. She had called the Police on him but they said that they could not help her. She is seeking out an Order of Protection but probably won't get one, for you have to have marks on you first, or be dead....sorry dear girl. The Lord is with her & her precious baby. I emailed all to pray & they will.
Martha, Joan. Lynda, Annette & Frank were here today to work.....hallelujah. I got a lot done in the office today, yeah!!

When I arrived to Focus there was Martha, Frank & Fred helping, it was great! Fred fixed the doorbell. Yeah!! I was in the office mostly for we didn't see many clients today. Latter on Jackie came & we had a meeting for we are going to change the Sign In sheets to Index Cards, trying to get to know our clients better & this should help. We want to be better. We see many people from different countries to assist & clients in pain too.
