E lives alone and suffers from severe depression. She receives Universal Credit and although she is managing to keep on top of day to day living costs and bills, her rent has got badly in arrears. She has been told that she needs to make some payment towards this by the end of the month and this is causing her great anxiety and adding to her depression as she has no means of being able to reduce the debt. A gift from Acts 435 would really help to ease the pressure on her at this stressful time.
