My name is Bethany Nelson. I am 32 years old and a single mom to four young children - ages 8, 7 and 6 year old twins. The father of my 4 children and I came to Glorybound over 7 years ago - I was pregnant with my twins at the time... I walked through Glorybound's doors not even really knowing much about their ministry - it was a Friday evening; there were families and children bustling around everywhere! Sharon was cooking a turkey dinner for the families and it smelled so good! I was taken back at first, by the warmth and kindness of everyone around me - I had just walked in, unannounced - and yet, everyone was so inviting! Sharon asked us all to stay for dinner after doing an intake with my family. We felt awkward and embarrassed, but Sharon and her husband John put us right at ease. We went home that night with 2 bags of groceries and hygiene items, as well as a buscard for Daniel (children's father) to get to his new job. We were shown so much love ! And by complete strangers! We bagan to regularly attend Glorybound on Friday nights. Because we didn't have a car, Glorybound picked us all up every week - and continued to pick us up - even when we moved clear across town! Over the years, Glorybound has been a family to me! They helped continually with food, milk vouchers, hygiene items, bus cards, holiday assistance and transportation. And most importantly - they nourished our souls with the Word of God. Sharon, John (rest in Peace) and their son Jeff are GENUINE Christian people! I love this ministry and don't know where I'd be without it!
