Reflections

I have sat in reflection most of today, humbled by the fact that God called a simple shipping girl from North Carolina, via Ohio to serve His Children. It is quickly approaching 9 months since we opened the doors to the North Charleston Campus - Dream Center and it has been one amazing ride so far.

Having a heart for missions, I could never have imagined the missions field in our own back yard. Let me share a few of the things that God has put in my path in the first 9 months of ministry:

  • 3 orphaned children (kindergarten, 1st grade & 5th grade) after their mother passed away and then a fight to help their dad get them back from DSS
  • Ring worms rampant through Hispanic Children – translated school documents and helped get over the counter medicine
  • Children that moved overnight to family as their parents get their life straightened out
  • A preemie baby that has survived and put on a healthy 9 lbs. in the last month
  • Baptisms - 4 Elementary/2 Middle School
  • 1 Prayer of Salvation with a student at 1st Wednesday
  • Prayed over prayers on elementary cross: help my mommy to stop being angry, it is quiet at home since we came to church, thanks for my new daddy and many more that will break your heart
These are just a handful and I want to thank each one of you that have encouraged me, prayed for me and walked with me through each of these. May you find encouragement that God is at work and He choose each one of use to reach the next spiritual generation.
