The Ultimate Thank You
In October of last year, HopeMatch leaders met to pray and ask God who was on His heart to minister to in the upcoming Christmas season. Through that time, one of our leaders felt that we were supposed to help non-profit leaders and/or ministry leaders. They give their lives to service and helping others, when many times they are in need themselves and rarely let anyone know. As we started reaching out to different leaders, the response was overwhelming. At first, they did not want to except the help, saying that there were others in more need than them. But, after an explanation and a little arm twisting, they all excepted. It was their time to be blessed for all the times they have been a blessing to others.
One such leader is Erica. Her and her husband have been called to serve ministry leaders themselves through coaching and training, as well as marketing resources. HopeMatch leaders have been the recipients of their acts of kindness and learned a great deal from Erica. After they moved north of Charlotte, we fell out of touch for a little bit, but we are so glad to be back in contact with them through this past season. They have been through some things in the last couple of years that would bring most people to their knees and make them question God. However, they have remained strong and positive and we believe through all of those experiences, God will be glorified. We were able to bless them through HopeMatch this past Christmas. It really encouraged them and brought their challenging year to a happy ending.
