Please Help Little Riley O’Brien

Friends, let us support Brother Bruce Mills, share God’s group thoughts for 8/01/2013 to help Little 5 yr old Riley’s Urgent Need! God bless you!

Matthew 25:35-36… for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; 36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’ (NKJV)

Today my writing has a dual purpose. First, I am writing to share a little bit about what the Bible (God’s inerrant Word) clearly teaches us about having compassion for those in need…and second I am writing to help a specific little 5 year old boy named Riley.

Riley O’Brien is a walking, breathing, medical miracle…who is now in desperate need (along with his family), for a healthy place to live. Little Riley was born with Heterotaxy Syndrome and Congenital heart disease. The doctors said he had a 50% chance of living past age 1. Praise God…at age 5, Riley continues to beat the odds.

After 3 Years, 3 Months, 3 Weeks, and 3 Days of waiting for 3 organs– Riley received his Bilateral Lung/Heart transplant on March 5, 2013. Dr. Spray and the medical miracle team at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia conducted this very rare transplant surgery.

You can read about Riley’s miracle life to date at this link… Right now the family is in desperate need for a new home for Riley and themselves. The small 700 sq ft home, the O’Briens’ are still paying for, is laden with mold, which they could not bring Riley home to. So they are currently renting an apartment, until Camden County Habitat for Humanity builds Riley a new home. Praise the Lord for this organization !!

I am asking all readers to open their hearts and their wallets for a couple of dollars. If we can all share this e-mail…hit the share button on the posting in Facebook…re-blog on …re-tweet, or otherwise share this urgent need for the O’Brien family…this posting could go viral, and God willing, Riley will get his house !!

Bet you’re thinking you don’t know little Riley O’Brien. Here is where the opening scripture, spoken by Jesus Himself, comes into play. Jesus was speaking to both the righteous and the unbelievers in the opening scripture. The righteous responded with this, in…

Matthew 25:37-39… “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ (NKJV)

And the Lord answers them saying this, in…Matthew 25:40… And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ (NKJV)

Friends, giving a blessing, not a hand out to Riley and his family, is in God’s eyes…giving to God directly. Please consider helping this family in need with a few dollars…or at least pass on this request any way you can, so that Riley and his family’s needs are met.

You can go to for the latest on Riley. If donations are made on 8/02/2013 (this Friday), the donations will be doubled by the “Hero Network” up to $100 = $200, for this one days donations. You can send a blessings to help Riley and his family by going to , clicking on “Donate to Wish”, and then clicking on “Grant a Wish”… You can also donate via check – Camden County Habitat for Humanity, 6955 Central Highway, Pennsauken, NJ 08109

If the Lord leads you, please consider asking your church to place a notice in the church bulletin with Riley’s help website Thank you, and be blessed !!

Please help me in this prayer for the O’Brien family…

Heavenly Father, we pray that this urgent financial need by the O’Briens’ will be heard by You, and that the hearts of all those who read about this family’s plight will be urged to share their finances and/or forward this message on. Your Word tells us that the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective (James 5:16b); and we pray boldly, so that You hear our request… If it be Your will, please grant this house for Riley, in Jesus’ most precious name and for His sake…Amen…

Blessings in Christ, bruce r mills

P.S. Any money donated that goes beyond the family’s needs, will be passed on to the
Camden County Habitat for Humanity, to help other families in desperate need of your help.
