I am the leader of our Ten for Him group and have not been good about putting the stories on the website, or encouraging my ladies to put their stories on here (I will try to do better). But I wanted to share our stories thus far because I have been struck by the commonality of the past few months giving. The past three months, three different ladies have given to women or families who have experienced domestic violence.
We have not had a murder in our town in 30 years but in the past 4 months we have had 2! One was a young 15 year old girl who was killed by her step father and another was a woman coming out of the movie theater with her boyfriend killed by her ex-boyfriend. Two different ladies gave the money to these two separate families to be used for funeral expenses, etc.
The other was a woman who had been at the domestic abuse shelter. She had gotten a job at a local grocery store to save money to buy a car. She finally saved enough money to purchase the car from one of our local car dealers (whose wife happens to be in our group). The money that month was put into the glove compartment for the mom and her two kids as encouragement. I feel like God is reaching out to women through our women this year. I pray that the money maybe used to empower those who have received the money to bring God’s peace and love into this world.
Love this group!!!
