D and his wife W are living with W's self employed brother since returning home from Africa. They are struggling to open a bank account and therefore progress with their application for welfare benefits. Both feel like a liability to her brother, as if they are sponging. Nothing could be further from the truth. D came to me humbly to ask if Acts 435 could help with a little money to contribute to the household utility costs.
