In the month of April: 

  • Received a gift of $1,000 from the Zoe Club

  • Received over 100 donated appliances

  • 54 appliances sold 

  • Started a new partnership with the Mustard Seed, a shelter ministry in Saginaw

  • Pivot Point has been working on and off for 2+ years with a client who seems to be in a storm of life - a young mother of teen boys going through a terrible divorce. Pivot Point has replaced every single major appliance in their home. That being said, of the 5 appliances that has been replaced, the team has been to service 3 of them multiple times. This might be looked at as an inconvenience or even more as a financial burden. However, the client's mom stopped by recently to share the positive impact each visit had been and how appreciative she is for the help that was provided to her daughter.  During Pivot Point's devotion time, we were reminded that our business and our values can and do connect. The appliances get us to people so we can love them - loving Jesus and loving people.
