Lane: Before I commit to meeting this need, I'd like to speak with a guy in our church that owns a plumbing business to see what his availability is. I don't want to commit to it if he's not available in a reasonable amount of time, which would keep someone else from meeting the need sooner. I've contacted him by text and waiting to hear back.

Lane: I've heard back from the plumber and he's planning to look at the problem and give me an estimate on the repair on Monday, March 20. That's the earliest he could work me in. I will need address and contact information for the family to pass along to him. If there's someone available to help meet the need sooner than Monday, let me know. I'm still willing to assist with the cost either way. Jerry Hatcher at Wellspring has offered to assist financially, if needed. I'll get the quote Monday for the repair and let the team know if we can take care of it all, or if we need assistance. Thanks!

Lane: The plumber was able to resolve the problem today and the family now has running water! He's hasn't given me the price yet but is going to send the invoice directly to Rainbow Forest Baptist Church.
