After some prayer, I was led in a couple of directions and then settled on contacting a group known as Front Porch ministries. They open their home for at risk kids in East Nashville and my church, Judson Baptist, works with them. I felt a pull to get their number from our church to contact them and when I did it was so clear that I had been led by God.
I called the woman and told her about the group and “Ten for Him”. I told her that I had $100.00 from the group to donate and felt God leading me to contribute to Front Porch. She was elated. She said that she had just had a conversation with a woman and made a commitment to give her family $100.00 for Christmas. I called just seconds after she hung up the phone. I got that funny feeling you get when you know the Lord is in control! So I contributed our money to a woman named Ernestine. She has 6 children and a family working with front porch has been mentoring her. She is getting back on her feet and working toward improving her life conditions and her relationship with God. It was so cool to know that she would be able to provide a nice Christmas for her family because of us.
