I joined a small group at my church recently as they were looking for an outreach opportunity. They had decided on another nonprofit group, but I saw a write-up on BOH in the paper and was immediately interested. I was looking online to read about this other group and up came Beacon of Hope - God was trying to get my attention! After meeting with Terry and hearing her story and hearing about the miraculous way BOH went from a dream to a reality, I knew this was where God wanted us to be. Several of us attended the dinner and auction and will go to the "pampering night" to meet clients and other volunteers. I'm planning to be trained in the next group of phone counselors, and our group will look for continuing opportunies to serve. The enthusiasm and compassion shown by Terry and some of the other staff is contagious!
