GRACE MINISTRY OF HELPING HANDS
September 30, 2013
I was starting out as a volunteer to get training to help women in other sides of town. The first time I went out onto Phillips Hwy with Kathleen and her team we met these two women (we met others but theses two will stay in my heart forever) Savannah who has a family history of drug abuse. She just kept telling us over and over she didn't know that people cared and loved the way that Grace Ministries shows love. We saw her through the hospital and into Rehab services. And the most heartbreaking was Darcel who while talking with her I asked if she had any children she said " yes a daughter, three years old." I asked her name and she told me Honesty Love, My heart broke for her. You see the way I saw it was she had never known a HONEST LOVE. She lived a life where it was always what can you do for me or How am I gonna get mine or just being abused. SHE BIRTHED her own HONEST LOVE. I pray for them both to this day.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Have a place for transitional housing for the women to be able to get job training so that when they have made the choice to get out of this life. The Ministry can offer a place for change. It is hard to want something and not have anywhere but back to your old life to go back to.
