Praise be to God the Father for His most Holy Son who died and arose. We just celebrated His resurrection. He calls each of us to various “duties” (for lack of a better word at this moment) all for His purposes. Some He commands, others He asks, and other’s He gives assignments to. My calling for 28 years was The Elah Ministry where I ministered to women, and some men, that had been sexually abused as children.
He assigned me to minister to various women, some lived in my home for a time as He and I helped them grow, heal, and get on their feet. That’s what my new assignment is now, my new calling.
Some months ago I was instructed by the Lord to shut Elah Ministry down and to be a part of this new ministry, Into The Light Ministry. We have bought a home and as many of you know we have been renovating it for ministering to women that have been rescued from sex traffic which includes drugs and prostitution. We will be a transition home to help these ladies transition back into society in a loving and healthy way.
But I have to confess, I’m frustrated! Pastor is doing most of the work himself and with everything else on his pastoral plate he can only devote 2 days a week, if that. With the past holidays, lousy weather, and trying to use the donations given with wisdom we are not able to hire the help to help him. I wish I had that M-I-L-L-I-O-N he keeps hoping for, I’d hire the help we need, but I don’t.
I’m also frustrated because the weather has prevented me from getting to play in the dirt and with a wind chill of 23 degrees I’ve once again hauled the purchased plants back into my bedroom. They’ll be there 2 nights so as not to lose them to the cold.
I’m angry and frustrated so I’m heading to the house in 43 degree weather this morning to start raking and clearing out what roots I can for the flower garden. After the rains we’ve had the ground will be soft (mud) but it must be done because the plants are getting root bound in their pots. A tiller has not been found nor a volunteer to help, and the inside of the house still needs work. So Cass is fed up and going to do what I can, when I can, and how I can. Anyone want to help?
Check back next time and maybe I’ll have a praise and hallelujah to report.
Blessings to you,
Into the Light Ministry
