HELLO EVERYONE MY NAME IS AMY I AM 28 YEARS OLD AND HAVE 3 LITTLE BOYS. ON MAY 4, 2008 I ENDED UP AT UMC IN JACKSON I HAD TRIED TO END MY LIFE. I WAS DEPRESSED AND I FELT I HAD NO OTHER CHOICE MY LIFE WAS A WRECK, MY MARRIAGE WAS A MESS, AND I THOUGHT I WAS RUINING MY BOYS LIVES...THE HOSPITAL DISCHARGED ME THE NEXT DAY BUT BECAUSE I WAS NOT FROM JACKSON AND I HAD NO WHERE TO GO AND NO ONE I COULD DEPEND ON THE HOSPITAL CONTACTED MRS. CHAROLOTTE AT THE WINGARD HOME AND THE HOSPITAL PAID FOR ME A CAB RIDE THERE... I DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN I GOT THERE I WAS SCARED. UPON MY ARRIVAL WE SAT AND TALKED AND MRS. CHAROLOTTE ASKED ME ABOUT MY BOYS I TOLD HER I HAD LEFT THEM WITH MY MOM IN LOUISIANA AND THAT I DIDN'T WANT THEM BECAUSE I WAS A FAILURE...WELL IT TOOK ME ABOUT 5 HOURS TO REALIZE I COULD NOT GO ON WITHOUT MY BOYS WITH ME AND I WENT AND TOLD MRS. CHAROLOTTE I WANTED THEM WITH ME AND WITHOUT HESITATION SHE SAID LETS GO AND WE LEFT AND DROVE THE 2 HOURS TO LOUISIANA IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT...I HAD NO MONEY, NO CAR, NO JOB, I HAD NOTHING BUT SHE DIDN'T CARE SHE TOOK ME ANYWAYS...WHILE I WAS THERE I LEARNED TO TRUST IN GOD AND THINGS FINALLY STARTED GETTING BETTER FOR ME I GOT A JOB WITH THE STATE...AND THE MINISTRY HELPED ME GET A CAR I WAS BACK ENJOYING LIFE PRODUCTIVELY BUT SOMETIMES WHEN WE THINK WE ARE READY ITS NOT OUR TIME I ENDED UP MOVING OUT AND IT TOOK ABOUT 3 MONTHS BEFORE I FELL BACK INTO A DEEP DEPRESSION AND I TRIED TO END MY LIFE AGAIN.. IT WAS NOT PRETTY BUT IT WAS MRS. CHAROLOTTE THAT CAME AND GOT ME AND TOOK ME AND MY BOYS BACK IN TO THEIR MINISTRY AND HELPED ME WITHOUT ANY JUDGEMENT...I AM SITTING HERE ALMOST 3 YEARS LATER IN MY OWN HOME LIVING AND ENJOYING LIFE WITH MY BOYS I KNOW NOW THAT NO MATTER WHAT I AM NOT ALONE AND GOD TOLD ME THROUGH HIM ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE AND HE TOLD ME TO ASK AND I SHALL RECIEVE...I MAY NOT HAVE EVERYTHING I WANT BUT HE SURE PROVIDES EVERYTHING WE NEED...SO IF ANYONE READING THIS HAS ANY DOUBTS ABOUT THIS MINISTRY AND THE EFFECTS IT HAS ON SOMEONES LIFE IT HELPED ME GET MY LIFE BACK AND I WOULD BE SAD TO KNOW THAT ANOTHER SINGLE MOM DIDN'T HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY I HAD IF SHE NEEDED IT. SO MRS. CHAROLOTTE AND EVERYONE ELSE AT THE MINISTRY THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!!!!!!!!!
